You may have noticed a new button on my left side bar...Homeschool Crew...

I have been chosen to be an independent product reviewer for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. 


Each month I will receive educational books and other products to use and then give an honest review of from numerous vendors.  Keep in mind that even if you do not homeschool, many of us are looking for quality educational products to use with our kiddos, whether for a supplement to what they are already doing or just plain 'ole fun!  (my kiddos are excited about the plain 'ole fun part!)  Each post will include all of the details of the products, my thoughts and experiences using them and even links to other reviewers' posts!  Look for my first review post in March!

Why the excitement?  I love homeschooling.  Not everyday, mind you, but most.

I love box day, when all of the books come in and my kids act like it is Christmas all over again. 
I love the smell of those new books.  I know, weird, huh?
I love snuggling on the couch (or chair, or floor) and having a brand new reader read me their first book.
I love the look of satisfaction on my kiddos' faces when they finally "get" something.
I love seeing the kids leaned over something, working together!
I love that my kids are best friends!
I love that as I get ready to send my oldest off to college this fall, I can rest in the knowledge that she has been taught well , and will do great!  Plus, I have tons to sweet memories of each day to sustain me!
I love that we can talk about God throughout our day without fear of reprimand from anyone.
I love that each day I spend with my kiddos brings us closer to each other and closer to the Lord!

If you are interested in this crazy thing called homeschooling...ask me!  I would love to share with you my heart and help you get started.  And if you just think we are plain crazy...well, then thank you for loving us anyway!

Thank you so much for becoming a follower of this no doubt helped me secure this position and I am extremely thankful for each one of you and to The Old Schoolhouse Crew for allowing me to join them.
