Homeschool Teacher Gifts?

So, here is my question, why don't homeschool teachers get end of the year gifts?

I asked my husband this question this morning. His response was that, "raising the children should be gift enough." Haha. I love my kids, but come on. My main thought is not so much the gift, but in the act.

An end of the year "gift" could be a card or a hug along with a heartfelt thank you. I know that homeschooling is a choice we as parents make, but kids get plenty out of it too. Homeschool parents put in a ton of time and energy to make it possible for the kids to stay home. They also make many sacrifices like having less (or no) personal time or less family income.

I would just like to encourage spouses of homeschooling parents to take their kids aside and help them to appreciate what has been done for them the whole year. Also, a present wouldn't be out of line.

Happy Homeschooling!

If my husband reads this and needs inspiration, here is a list of my demands, err ideas.
