I was thinking of trying again in January, but if he is not interested should I just hold off and just read and play games with him?
Thanks for your replies.

I have not done MFW-K, but I just wanted to mention that many boys wait until age 6 to start schooling. Sitting still, writing, and even coloring are still challenging to my active, just-turned-9.
My 3 kids all started kindergarten after age 5-1/2 (at the public school). (They were between 5 years 8 months, and 6 years 2 months to be exact LOL!). By then I felt they were ready for an hour or two of structure in their day, and for emotionally handling things that didn't go their way!
Just a thought,
