I've been subscribed to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine for two years. And last year, I added a third year to my subscription. I have looked forward to each issue that I have received since I subscribed. My husband reads some of the articles in each issue, and my children are always eager to see it when I've finished reading it.
In fact, I lost my Summer issue awhile back. I was constantly asking the children what they had done with the magazine. I was frustrated that it was lost because it was one I particularly wanted to keep, since it's theme was Charlotte Mason methods of education. Since this is the homeschool style I'm closest to following, I was upset that the magazine was missing.
For days, I nagged about this magazine, I'm ashamed to admit. I'm even more ashamed to admit that as I began packing to move, I found the magazine in my own stack beside my own recliner, on the floor. Oops! I did apologize to my children, who were quick to remind me they did say they had put it back.
I was subscribed to a secular ladies magazine this past year, for part of the year. I can't remember why, but Steve had been offered some deal on it. It was a disappointment -- and after a brief perusal, each issue ended up in the trashcan. Its title would seem that it would be a magazine I would enjoy, but it had changed since my Mom used to subscribe, and it was a waste of our money.
On the other hand, I have never received an issue of The Old Schoolhouse that was not a treasure and a blessing. Thank you, Suarezes, and all the TOS staff & writers, for a wonderful magazine.
