2009 Summer Subscriptions from The Old Schoolhouse!

2009 Summer Subscription Specials

from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine


Yes, I am a member of the Homeschool Crew. However, that is not why I love The Old Schoolhouse Magazine! I have loved this magazine from the moment I recieved my first issue! I have been talking to my homeschool group friends about TOS for years! Long before the crew ever existed!!!

I would always tell them, watch for when they are having their specials, you really can't beat the value you get!! The magazine alone is worth the price, however, when you add in all the bonuses, you simply cannot beat the value you get dollar for dollar!

Well it's that time again!!!  They are having, what I think is their best special in my memory! The first 5,000 people to subscribe for 2 years will recieve these 19 gifts. You can click here to read all about them!

I will tell you that included is a gift from Sears Portrait Studio worth $34.98. That one gift alone, just about pays for a 2 year subscription! Which costs $39.00. However, some of the other items included are a $10 gift certificate from Apologia, and from Daystar. And a one year membership to "I Can Write", just to name a few!!! There are too many to write about.

Please visit TOS and read the complete list of awesome vendors that have generously participated in the Summer Bouquet event!!!

Happy Homeschooling!

Teen Camp 2009

Teen Camp 2009



Three of my children, the 3 in the middle, have gone to teen camp this week. I am so thankful they have had the opportunity to go. They have worked hard for several months to help pay for teen camp. You see, back in December, my husband was one of the many of thousands of people who lost ther job. While he has since found employment, we are making about 80% of what we were making. So sending the children to camp was a prayer!!! We all know that if they attended camp this year, it would be through hard work, and lots of prayer. 

The Lord provided in many awesome ways!! The children sold discount cards, as many of the teens did at church. One son works assisting in a homeschool PE class, both boys are mowing lawns, other than our own and getting paid for that. They took care of and took back all of our recyclying and made a good chunk of change. There was also birthday money that was used. And daddy was even to help kick in a bit.

Thie kids are so unbelievably grateful! Our prayer for them, is that while the will enjoy themselves with all of the fellowship with their friends. We long for their hearts to remain open and ready to receive God's Word. And that they would respond to what the Lord wants to do in them!

Would you help us pray for this for our children?
