TOS Homeschool Crew Blue Ribbon Awards

As the 2010-2011  Crew year comes to a close, the Crew once again voted, and we are proud to present awards to our vendors - the TOS Homeschool Crew Blue Ribbon Awards.

I did not review all of these products this year, but I did review a lot of them.  Since this is my blog, I'll link up my review where appropriate, and the text will be in blue.  If I didn't review the product, the link will take you to the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog page for that review.  All my reviews link back to the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog page, if you want to see other people's opinions too.

Obviously, everyone I voted for didn't win (I didn't vote for anyone I didn't review!) but there certainly are some amazing companies and products on this list.

Stopping by from the crew. I've read many of your posts over the past year, but somehow didn't click follow. I still have so much to learn and your blog is inspiring. I am amazed at all you accomplish!

I am your latest GFC and NetworkedBlogs follower and I look forward to keeping up with you for a long time.

Blessings to you and yours,
