Backorders are starting to arrive!

Backorders are starting to arrive!

During our Flash Sale earlier this month, we were blessed with far more orders than expected. (Woo hoo!) Even though we stocked up our warehouse in preparation for the sale, eventually many of our items ran out of stock.

If your order included backordered items, we have good news for you: many of our backorders just came in! 😀 Once we have them all processed and stocked, we’ll begin to ship them out to you.

(Below: One of the daily deliveries we’ve been receiving over the past few days. To be honest, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a UPS truck so full before!)

 

The Math of Writing a HOD Guide

The Math of Writing a HOD Guide

Did you know that it took Carrie about 5 months (Sept – Jan) each year to pick the resources that are included in each guide she wrote? Once the resources are picked, the writing process could then begin! The writing of the guides themselves took approximately 1,000 hours.

Have a good weekend!

Repeating guides?

Heart of Dakota Tidbit:

Repeating guides? 

We really enjoy the opportunity to meet homeschool families each year at various conventions around the country! It is often through conversations at conventions that we discover some interesting misconceptions about how to use our guides. One interesting misconception is that some families think that they are meant to repeat the same guide two years in a row with the same child. We can see how this assumption could happen as our guides have age ranges listed instead of grade levels. However, upon completion of one guide we are assuming the child will head right into the next guide (as the guides are written to be used one right after the other). The progression of skills is important, and one guide prepares your child well for the skills needed in the next guide.

Have a great weekend!
