who took the curriculum cake? (a TOS post)



It has been my joy and privilege to be a part of the TOS Crew this year.  Our family has enjoyed the blessing of exploring many wonderful resources.  I’ve loved sharing our experiences and thoughts here.  With you guys.  Smile   



Especially because I know how overwhelming the curriculum quest can be!  I hope that my reviews have been helpful.  I’m looking forward to continuing with the Crew this year too!
