    I love this quote from a home educating mom about her mushroom-crazy son:

    He found it easy to remember the names and traits of mushrooms. His mother, Tambra Birkebak, said that although her son spends some of his money on CDs and typical teenage expenses, he also buys a lot of mushroom books online.

    “How he spends his money — if we saw it in a pie chart — would be really hilarious,” she said.

    Everything’s an educational moment when you home educate. And, BTW, Joshua is welcome to come visit our home for some more mushroom IDing; I must have several thousand species in the front yard alone.

    I think my teen spends most of her money on books. Right now she’s on a Japanese Manga kick, and every payday we rush to the book store to get the next ones in 3 different series she’s reading.
