Ever wonder what I get back from my blog readers? The limerick Joe wrote for me made my day and inspired this post, but all of you are interesting people who contribute so much to my life! I cherish each of you. Here is a recent smattering of input from my readership:

Of beautiful pictures
That made all her readers so jolly!” (from Joe)

A friend sent their child to a private school for eight years at a cost of $256,000 to get her daughter into the same college two homeschool girls we know are going to. If you do a good job homeschooling to college for all three of your kids, you’ll save triple that, or $768,000 over eight years, which before taxes is $1,344,000, equivalent to $168,000 earned per year. Not only does this highlight the value of what you as a homeschooler contribute to your family financially, it also shows how ahead you are when it comes to paying for college. (from Christine)

“Only five states do not have collective bargaining for educators and have deemed it illegal. Those states and their ACT/SAT rankings are as follows:

Texas – 47th
Virginia – 44th
If you are wondering, Wisconsin, with its collective bargaining for teachers, is ranked 2nd in the country.” –From Maureen Downey, for the AJC Get Schooled blog (from Fred)
