We wish Spunky the best

It was shocking to read that Spunky has decided to move on. My wife and I have been talking a bit about it over the last couple days. Spunky has been a main fixture in the homeschool blogging world. She seemed so permanent, like Mount Rushmore. I thought she would always be there. In internet years she's been blogging a gazillion years.

She has been a force for good. She writes well. She has been insightful. She does her research. She has been a voice of warning. She has shared her wisdom and experience. I've enjoyed following her blog over the last two years.

You can tell that she has touch so many lives by all the comments she is getting on her last post. There are 128 comments so far.

We wish Spunky the best in the next phase of her life.

I agree wholeheartedly! She has been a stalwart of the cause :)

You also are very important to the homeschool blogging community, even if you didn't realize it! Thanks for being there too,

Thank you for your kind words.

I think our biggest contribution is keeping the Carnival of Homeschooling going. It has provided a way for many homeschooling bloggers to meet each other.

Your contribution is not just the carnival but many other things as well. Keep on keeping on.

Thanks for the kind words. It is truly a joy to be associated with such quality people.)
