What I really appreciate about TOS

The Old Schoolhouse magazine is celebrating their 10th anniversary, and they are having a Blog Hop to celebrate!

I thought I would join in and let you know what I most appreciate about TOS.

Many years ago, probably about 8 or so, I was told about TOS magazine. I heard about it from my sister-in-laws mother.

It hasn't been until more recently that I have been able to afford a subscription. Well, I probably could have gotten one a lot sooner if I had known about all of their specials.

I really appreciate their magazine. It is such a great help to homeschoolers, and I love the fact that it is biblical too.

That is what makes it the best magazine for me. You know that what is said in the magazine is going to be backed up with biblical principles.

Anyhow, I have known about TOS for a long time, but it wasn't until recently that I really got to know this company.

I had no idea that TOS had such great products. I have fallen in live with their Curiosity Files, the WannaBe series, and the TOS Planners

A few years ago, I had met a few ladies from listening to some of Cindy Rushton's seminars, and my daughter became pen pals with one of these ladies daughters.

They met through doing Felice Gerwitz's Creation Classes. Funny how all this works. lol

Anyhow, this one lady that I had met, and that we keep in touch sometimes, because our daughters had become pen pals, she was on the TOS Crew the year before last, and that is how I heard of the TOS Crew.

Whew, that was windy.

Anyhow, it is funny though because if it weren't for Cindy, then Felice, then my friend, I wouldn't have know about TOS.

God really does put you in the right place at the right time, and has a plan for you, even if you have no clue what it might be.

Because of all of that, I tried out for the Crew last year, and was accepted.  I was thrilled!

I has been great! I have been so blessed by the Crew. Not only in curriculum, but also in friendships.

I think the idea for the Crew was a brilliant idea. I mean, what do we homeschoolers ask most often?

"What curriculum do you use?", Right?

Well, now there is one place that everyone can go to, and get opinions on hundreds of different homeschool products.

I think it is a very helpful resource to the homeschool community. I have been very blessed to be a part of it, and I have been doubly blessed by being allowed to come back next year.

I thank TOS, and everyone involved for the time and effort it takes to put something like this together. It is a lot of hard work, but when God puts something in motion, HE will work it out.

Thanks TOS!
