Vlog Update

Things are very busy here at Sonlight!

Got 57 seconds? Want to take a look?

Vlog: Busy Season - The Back

Yes, things are hopping in the back. My mom said, as I passed by with the camera, "We are so thankful for the orders, but we need to get customers to order earlier!"

Yes, the summer help is starting to head back to school and we are swamped with the orders. We are so thankful for the orders, but it can be draining to push that many boxes out the door every day.

So: Think of the children next year--order early! <smile>

Never one to miss an opportunity to pat myself on the back, I would like to point out that I, Sonlight customer extraordinaire, ordered waaaaay back in April.

By the way, not to be nosy, but when do we get an adoption update?

Annemarie,

I'll join you in patting your back: Thanks for ordering in April! You rock!

As for adoption: I've got another update in the works. I should probably do that tonight, since I've been putting it off all weekend <smile>. Stay tuned.

NB: That post will be on my personal blog and not here.

Yeah- we do year-round school, and I like to order in May. This year we ran behind and ordered in June. Is that still early enough for brownie points?

I would order in, like, January, which is usually when I start making out my wish list, but it takes Neal a few months to get over the sticker shock for education a la carte. Did you know the US air force allots $1200 PER CHILD for homeschooling materials!! That's my entire budget for all four of my kids for a year!

Ooh, is that heaven? Nope, the Sonlight warehouse! :)

Angela, I'll gladly give you brownie points. How about 5? Is that fair? <smile> And for $1,200, and the fact that you can reuse so much of your Cores, I'd say you're set for educational needs <smile>. I'm not looking forward to the "sticker shock" when my kids finally arrive.

Holli, the Sonlight warehouse is not exactly Heaven, but hopefully it is part of doing the work of "Heaven" here on earth <smile>.

You ladies crack me up! Love it!

~Luke
