E. Both B and D.

Correct answer: E

Mary Wayte on her induction to her university's hall of fame:

"It is an extraordinary honor. I'm homeschooling my two children now, and sometimes the biggest event in my day is cutting crust off of a sandwich. So that people actually remember what you've done, and feel like it's something worth honoring, it's just really fun. At the same time, I wouldn't trade my life right now for anything."

I love that you post stuff like this. I'ev been lurking for a couple months now and love your voice and musings. I have 2-year old twins and am seriously considering homeschooling them. You make it sound fun and do-able. :)
