Totally jealous!!! We were leaving our neighborhood when we saw the maillady. We waited around for 10 minutes just to see if Preparing came today. I'm not sure I've ever been this excited.

I had planned to start on the 4th, and I was just going to use the sample week. BUt we've got house issues and doc appts next week, so we'll just start on the 11th.

Now I can't wait!!! Our mail never gets here before 4:00, so I'll have to wait all day to see if it's here.

My Preparing Guide just arrived!!! I can't believe how fast the service is with HOD. I am so impressed. :D Thank you so much!!

I am not even using Preparing until next year, but bought it for the Dictation passages and written narration instructions. We are starting Bigger on Monday and can't wait. I gave the kids a preview today of what their school days are going to look like and let them see their new binders and supplies. They were begging to start with all their schoolwork today! Thank you, Carrie! I can't wait until Monday! And I get to look forward to opening Preparing tonight after the kids go to bed!! :wink:

Mine came yesterday too! Yippeee!! But I didn't get to open the box until today <talk about patience building!>VBS week here for us and last night was the Parent presentation, so it was a long day.
I can't wait to get started with it. We're going to have our "First Day Back to School" on Monday, Aug 4, but it's more of a fun day for us here. We like to get back into the routine slowly. :)
Hope everyone else gets theirs soon!

Oh Ladies, I just LOVE your excitement! :D We're SO EXCITED too to have the books out to all of you! :wink: Now, we can get down to planning out our school year (and finishing all of our house projects that we've been waiting to do)! :wink:

We pray that each of your families will be blessed by Preparing Hearts... and that your kiddos will be drawn closer to the Lord through it!

Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm. :D
