    Put a semicolon after "homework."

    Alternatively, split it into two sentences at that juncture.

    Either split into two sentences after homework, or use a semicolon there.

    Edit: Alternatively, you could do it Elroy's way - which I'm pleased to say is the same as mine.
    Yep, "ever" adds emphasis and flavor for me, too.

    I'd do a semi colon or split it in two.

    Also, out of curiosity, where did you get this sentence?

    Honor and pleasure makes it seem like the students LOVED their homework. I haven't seen a situation like that yet. I can tell you one thing. I despise my Spanish project. It's getting done. Actually, it's almost done now :) Getting off topic, I better stop.
