I recently read that it's just as expensive to send a child to some preschools as to college. I don't know about that, but it made me curious. I just looked up how much it would cost to put my three children in Christian school. $15,000/year plus clothing and fees and transportation. That's a minimum of $18,000. If I had to work to cover it, I'd probably have to make at least $22,500 before taxes! That doesn't even include the lifestyle changes that would result. Suddenly, my work as a homeschool mom seems to add a bit more to the family income!
