TOS Homeschool Crew

I have been selected by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine to review curriculum and other various products from vendors who market material for 7th grade students and up. The deadline for the first test review is coming up shortly so I thought I'd take a minute to let my readers know what's going on.

For several years, I blogged over at HSB, which is the blogging platform for TOS. During my time there, I was blessed to meet some pretty amazing women (and a few men) and some of us are still friends, today. It is there where I learned I had a voice. What was even more unforeseen is that someone actually read what I was posting. One of my very first comments was from California. I could not believe my eyes!

I will never get accustomed to the complimentary encouragement about my writing. I'm humbled. But, over a number of years, I've grasped the fact that some are blessed by what I have to say. In my TOS reviews, I'll try to be honest, respectful, and fair in my assessment of the material. I'm excited about opening that first box of treasures to consume and, of course, the review is what I will find most enjoyable. After all, have you ever met a homeschooler without an opinion? Didn't think so. ;-)
