Schoolhouse Review Crew Now Taking Applications for 2014

   When I think of the Schoolhouse Review Crew I think of all the blessings that my family has been given over the last couple of years. Now if you read my blog, which obviously you do, you have seen the countless curriculum items my family has been given to review over the last almost 3 years. Now free curriculum is always fun, but keep in mind it is also hard work. It is not always fun and games, sometimes I have been sent things my kids were not as happy about as I thought they would be, but we had to use them anyway so that I could do my work. Most often than not though they have been fun  and educational items that we may not have otherwise been able to use due to finances or just plain not knowing about the company or product.
    Here is where the most influential blessing came from the crew, not curriculum, but new friends who share similar interests, most online only but some I have had the opportunity to meet here and there over the last couple of years. The Crew is like a special family, that no words could truly describe. We pray for each other and cry for those struggling, we laugh with each other or sometimes even at someone(because of something they have shared). We have rejoiced when a new baby has arrived for a crew member and we have grieved when one of our own has passed away to be with our Lord. We share ideas and inspiration and recipes and just good old support. Some of us even joined together to go on a weightloss journey as a team and let me tell you I would not have had the weightloss success I did this past year if it was not for my buddies on the crew.

   We have meetups at homeschool conventions and many of us have made friends that we talk to in person or on the phone, like my good friend Sarah. Without the Crew I would be lost. I believe all things happen for a reason and the Crew is no exception. One day while surfing through the blogs I follow I came upon a post just like this one, proclaiming that bloggers were being asked to apply for the new crew year. Little did I know that I was soon to become one, and what an impact it was going to make on my life and that of my family.

   If you are not afraid of hard work, and your homeschool is flexible about curriculum and you like to try new things then I encourage you to apply now, because you never know what God has in store for you. Coming in November you just may be on the blogroll of Crewmates.
Click the banner above to find out all you need to know. there are some prequalifications that need to be met before applying, but if you are a blogger who keeps up with their posts I am sure you have already passed step one.  I look forward to seeing some of my blogging friends in the Crew forum soon, God Willing.
