Walkin’ the Crew Blogs – 11/16/10 & 11/23/10

crewblogwalk2 I’ve fallen behind in my Walkin’ the Crew Blogs posts again.  Shame on me!  But, the truth is, I really do have a life outside of work and blogging – and sometimes my family has to come first!  In any case, this week we’ll be featuring FOUR First Mates – so you’ll have double the new blogs to visit and new friends to meet. What could be  better, right? So, without further adieu . . .

My first introduction for this week is First Mate Nikki from Joy in the Journey.  As the name of her blog suggests, Nikki is a joy to know. Nikki is in her 2nd year with the Homeschool Crew, and is serving as a First Mate for the first time this year.  Though Nikki and I live in the same state (PA), we have yet to meet.  Maybe this coming spring at the local homeschool convention (?)

Nikki calls her mini-Crew the Navigators.  Her team is made up of:Mini Crew Button

My second introduction is First Mate Lori from Hearthside Homeschool Reviews . . . and More. Lori is in her 3rd year with the Crew and her 2nd year as a First Mate.  In addition to her FM duties, she’s also the Crew’s Contest Coordinator – as such, she posts a new contest on our blog each Monday.  If you are not reading our blog and taking advantage of these contests, you’re missing out.  Lori is a fun member of the Crew – and always puts a smile on my face!  We found out what a small world we live in earlier this year when my friend Sue passed away – Lori realized they had been praying for Sue doubly at their church – through me and another mutual friend – and she didn’t realize the connection. :)

Her team is called Tradewinds and consists of:tradewinds2

My third introduction for this week is First Mate Kathy from The Stewards Steno.  Kathy is in her 2nd year with the Crew and serving as a First Mate this year for the first time.  Kathy went above and beyond the call of duty last year and that didn’t go unnoticed with Brenda and me, which is the reason we asked her to return for another year. 

Kathy calls her team the Good Steward Ship.  This team is made up of :ship-wheel2

FYI: Kathy’s team started out with 4 members, but unfortunately two have dropped out. Serving on the Crew is not always an easy task, but it is rewarding.  If you’re thinking of trying out for the Crew  this coming spring, please make sure you have the time to devote to it and the commitment to stick it out for a full year.

Fourth and last for this week is First Mate Katrina from Mama Manuscripts.  Katrina is one of our International members.  She is in her 2nd year with the Crew and serving as a First Mate for the first time this year.  She has been a conscientious and devoted member of the team, and one that we’re proud to have on board with us.

Katrina’s team is the Virtuous Vessels.  Here are her team members:Picture 20

That’s a lot of blogs for you to visit this week, but I hope you’ll take the time to do so.  I’m sure you’ll be blessed!

Special thanks to these 4 First Mates – Katrina, Kathy, Lori, and Nikki.  We appreciate your hard work this year!
