Yes, we all got our first edition yesterday. They look beautiful. The fastest way to get one is by ordering it directly from Apologia over the phone. As soon as I get my supply next week, I will make them available here. And yes there will be giveaways – so make sure you are following me on Facebook and Twitter. The first event is a Facebook Party! thrown by Apologia at 9 PM EST tomorrow night. I’ll be there.
I need to give a shoutout to the many, many homeschooling moms who gave us such helpful feedback during the development process. These include family and friends in each of the production team’s locale ( This was a multi-state venture.) And in particular, thank you to a wonderful group of homeschooling families serving throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia who spent a long afternoon months ago with Zan Tyler, my editor, and me pretty much reinventing the first prototype we showed them. So this planner will work for your family, we pray :), both here and abroad!
We are thrilled to finally have these ready to ship. So far, everyone we’ve shown the real product to comments on the beautiful colors, the bright purple spiral binding (which makes it easy to spot on the shelf) and the emphasis on God’s grace in our lives. Enjoy.
