2015 Schoolhouse Review Crew Blue Ribbon Awards

 1 Meet the Schoolhouse Review Crew Favourites
It’s hard to believe that another TOS Crew year has come to an end. I wrote my last review for the year last week. My family has done 36 reviews of some amazing products. Some of them were tried and true favorites in the homeschool community. Others are vendors that I have never even heard of prior to the review. I’m looking forward to another year in 2016 with the Schoolhouse Review Crew!

Not all my favorites won! Which is perfectly fine as it was hard voting. Some items were just what I needed at that time and really blessed my homeschool. I didn’t have any issues or dislikes this year that caused tears from the kids or from me! 


It can be tough continuing using products that you review along with your regular curriculum. I found that this year a lot of items where a better fit for my family and have continued using them.


Congratulations to all the Blue Ribbon Award Winners~ You guys really make a difference in the lives of so many homeschoolers.
