TOS Crew Blog Walking – Week 3


This is week three of the blog walking of the members of the TOS Homeschool Crew.

1. All American Family

The design of this blog is all about bring American.   I love it!  The red, white and blue all over is simply fabulous.   In this blog, you will learn more about another homeschool family of 3 kids.   They are passionate about their American heritage and you can sense it in this blog.  

2. Growing Fruit

This is the blog of Amy, Queen of the household, and Prince Andrew, her son.   From what I can understand, Andrew is a special need child.  And reading on how someone is going through raising a special need child remind me of the challenges my sister-in-law and her husband will go through raising their own special need child, my nephew.  

3. Learning to Teach

Learning to Teach is a new blog on the block.   The author is a mom of 2 kids which she homeschool as well as a foster mom for a young woman who goes to a public high school. She loves to scrapbook (hey!  another scrapbooker!) crochet, decorating, reading and vacationing with her family (another similar point in common with me!). 

4. Codex Young Author's Publishing Program

This site belongs to brothers who purchased back in 2008 The Tutor.   I suspect that one of the owners will be reviewing for TOS Homeschool Crew this year.  

5. Stairsteps Homeschool Academy

This is the homeschool blog of Little Farm Mama.    You can discover their activities and life at Stairsteps Homeschool Academy.   I particularly enjoyed reading about the volcano project (which reminded me that I need to do something similar this coming year with my own kids).

6. Kingdom Academy

Meet Brandy and her family who lives in Florida.   She has two boys whom she homeschool and she is a former teacher herself.    This blog is fairly new from what I can see.   Brandy writes about what happened during the week and what special lessons they boys are going through.  

7. Living Sola Gratia

Here’s another lady named Brandi (different spelling though!) who has four kids.    I am always amazed when mom blogger who homeschool list their menu of the week and recipes.   I mean where do they find the time to do so?   Honestly I wonder but I also enjoy having new recipes so I am pleased to see recipes on this site.  The Super Yummy Taco Bake looks delicious…  Thanks Brandi!

8. Wynfield Christian Academy

This site is an accredited K-12 program for homeschool students.   I am suspecting that the owner of this site is also part of the TOS Homeschool Crew.  If you want to learn more about Wynfield Christian Academy check out their website.

9. The Cow Queen

The name is funny, the site is hilarious.   Well the images at the top are….  It is always nice to have a site that will bring a smile to your face and The Cow Queen did that when I came  to visit.  Beverly is the author of this site.  So where the name comes from you might wonder?   Well about 20 years ago, she was crowned the National Jersey Jug Queen.   The Jersey is a breed of dairy cattle.   Hence the name of the blog.   Which I think it totally cute!   I love her blog title Spring in the Kingdom – go see it to see how it finishes.   Smile!

10. Peace Creek on the Prairie

Here’s the blog of a mom of 6 little ones who is a farmwife as well.    I suspect that her life is quite busy with 6 kids and a farm.   I am looking forward to discover life on the farm with this family during the coming year.

Voilà!  Week three is wrapped up.   Follow me next week to discover another 10 members to the TOS Homeschool Crew.  Until then – have a nice week!
