Homeschooler Gets Full Ride to University of Chicago

Ok, so I'm always reminding (nay, nagging) people to check out each week's edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling. There's a reason for that: you'll find awesome posts there!

Take this week's edition, for example. Lots of good stuff, but one post in particular stands out for me. A new blogger shares her family's homeschooling journey, which includes the news that her son (a bright guy who scored 35 on his ACT and 2300 on his SAT) has been awarded a full scholarship to the University of Chicago.

In case you don't know, that's not some lame Mickey Mouse college. It's an excellent school with a fantastic reputation. This is a great story that should encourage current and prospective homeschoolers everywhere.

No, I'm not linking to it. Go to the carnival and search for it yourself. Bet you'll find lots of good stuff while you're there. :)

Thanks for the link, Barbara!

I should really have gone to a Mickey Mouse college. It sounds like more fun than the university I went to, plus they probably don't teach the kind of junk they tried to teach me. ;-) And I really would like a course on "Donald and Daisy- A Reflective Look at Socially Awkward Situations".

You're welcome, Mama S!

And Janet, you are too funny...Donald and Daisy, lol!
