Aww, thanks guys! You're both sweet!

Tempax, I like your new avatar. I can't decide if it's pretty or scary. Maybe it's pretty scary. (heehee)

No, I think.... it's mysterious. :)
I am not rich.  :L

sorry for i am not reading your passages in seriously.

for it is too long. i am a leaner by myself.  i select this way of study for i am 25 years old already, and began to work already, but as a young boy your son is, you have better send him to school even for regulatory education and for make friends with others. he needs friends i am sure.

I am sorry for no good suggestion to you.

I am a science teacher in junior middle school in Shanghai.In grade six and seven the guys will learn a basic science subject  called Modern Intergrated Science which originally published by Oxford University Press Ltd.This subject teach the guys basic science knowledges including chemistry,physics ,biology and earth science,etc.I think maybe this subject  is like what you said in America the subject science is. Also the guys need to learn further absolute subjects like geography in grade six and seven,physics in grade seven and eight, biology in grade seven,and  chemistry in grade eight.I think to the guys science mean fun.But many science subjects like the other main subjects need exam and the exams are very high frequency ,at least each chapter will have one.If your son go to Chinese middle school he has to face two big problems ne is the language ,the other one is exam.How can he understsnd science knowleges and pass the exams?But in China there is popular to teach some subjects(include science) in bilingual language(in Chinese and in English) in some school ,this is helpful to your son.But the amout of this school trying bilingual teaching is very little and the exams still in Chinese.So  i am sorry i haven't good suggestion to you,but  i hope good luck to your son when he is in China!

Considering your situation, homeschool may be a good option. Were I to add something,  I would suggest you make it in varied ways ---- don't make it too dull for your son. For example, you can invite some Chinese students his age to exchange lessons, as many of them are very willing to learn English from a native speaker. And you can even talk about tutorial fees. Well , actually, I think you can make a small private tutoring business of your home, tax evaded, and Scot free!
