I have not disappeared off the face of the earth! This is not a defunct blog! I really am still reviewing things. I will get more regular now that the school year has started and we have fallen into a schedule a little better.
This is not so much a review, but a promotion I thought some of you might be interested in. I wanted to tell you all about The Old Schoolhouse Magazine's Fall Special. You can get two years of the magazine, 6 fabulous physical gifts (no downloads!) worth over $120, plus the current issue of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine that is full of ideas for the new school year, so you start receiving your magazine in a flash!
It really is one of their best deals ever and you don't want to miss out. In fact, they've got a really cute Homeschooling with Heart tote bag (valued at $13.95) for the first 1000 to subscribe. About half of them are gone, but you should still be able to get one if you hurry! (They will remove the info from the subscription page when the bags are all gone.) The total value is over $212, but you receive it all for only $39 - 50% off of cover price! Plus subscribers get their online monthly Teacher's Toolbox which focuses on a different topic each month, giving you words of encouragement, hands-on teaching ideas, book recommendations, field trip ideas, and a bonus download item.
Here is the link if you are interested in subscribing to the mag. I have subscribed to a few different homeschool magazines over the years, but this one is definitely my favorite and the only one I still subscribe too.
