TOS: Homeschool Crew Year 2, Voyage is Complete

It is hard to believe that I have been reviewing curriculum for the TOS Homeschool Crew for 2 years now. I am not sure where the time has gone. When I am knee deep doing reviews, it seems there is no in sight, though not that the 2nd year is complete, it is hard to believe it is over!

I have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of being on the crew. THe friendships made while on the crew, is not something I was looking for nor expecting! God is good to bless in ways we could not even imagine.

The amazing women and 1 gent have been a wealth of information, and a constant source of support. And I am not just speaking of crew related issues.

They are quite the prayer warriors, the each have a wealth of knowledge to be shared, about homeschooling, special needs, techie stuff, as well as having some good ole clean fun!

I have been asked to serve another year on the crew! What an honor!
I am thankful for the blessings that God continues to shower down on me, that make homeschooling continue to be possible for our family.

I am going to miss the crew members that will not be joining us next year, and I am looking forward to keeping touch with them through other means.. facebook, twitter, their blogs!

I am also looking forward to meeting our new crew and getting to know who has been assembled for the Year 3 Crew.

As we close with Year 2 I thought I would share with you the list of Crew Awards for our favorite products.
If I reviewed the product, I have included a link to that review here.
If you would like to read any of the reviews my crew mates wrote about these products you can do that by visiting the crew blog.
