Introducing my 2010-2011 Mini-Crew!

Most of you are aware that I've been doing homeschool product reviews for the Old Schoolhouse Magazine for the last couple of years. Is has been a fun and blessed adventure. Part of my responsibilities as a returning Crew member (or First Mate) is to sail alongside several new members to the Crew. Essentially, I'm there to answer questions and help them step into the responsibilities of a TOS Crew member for a smooth voyage.

However, I think of us as more of team, reviewing products together for the benefit of our fellow homeschoolers. For fun, the various Crew mini-teams thought up appropriate names to call themselves. We chose:

The Navigators
Keeping your curriculum choices from going adrift...

Of course, what good is a name without a graphic to show it off a bit? This project really tested my graphics-challenged self, but I managed to come up with something on my very own!

While being on the Crew is certainly a joy for me and I love receiving products to review, it is my hope that the readers of my reviews benefit just as much. There are so many curriculum choices out there and we all have a limited amount of hard-earned cash with which to purchase it. It is my desire that my reviews, and those of the rest of the Crew, will help make the decision process just a bit easier and help you make some wise decision.

With that, let me introduce to you four lovely ladies that have been assigned to my mini-Crew:


All of the above ladies are on the "Older Crew" this year. No, that doesn't reflect the age of the reviewers (ahem!), but the types of products we'll be reviewing (for 7th grade and up). Please be sure to visit their blogs and read what they have to say about the products they receive.

You can also read the reviews of all 250 Crew members by visiting the Official TOS Crew Blog.
