We've been learning at home for fifteen years. Our children learning at home are 14 and 16. Our two oldest children have graduated from their homeschool years and are now in college.
Sam ruined our last pencil sharpener (he stuck a crayon in it and broke it off, we could never get that out) so we bought a $20 E-Acto Powerhouse sharpener at Sam's Club and it works GREAT! It really sharpens them to a good point and is very fast. I like the design, too, as it can sit on a shelf and it faces out so you can sharpen the pencils with it even on a high shelf (to keep those pesky toddlers out). Our old one sat upright so it was inconvenient, so maybe I should give Sam a star for wrecking it!
We purchased something along the $15 range at Office Max about 2 years ago, and its still running strong. Of course, there are only 3 people running it all day here. 2 years ago I was using a little travel sharpener for 1 kid in K. Dh didn't understand why we needed to buy an electric. I said, "it will save me sooo much time"...and I was right!
