One more announcement--The Delphian Study Course is finally complete and you can order it in one shipment! You may have noticed yellow boxes on many of the High School pages--these refer you to selections within the Delphian course if you would prefer to study in connection with the rotation schedule rather than just following volumes 1 through 10. It works either way. And now that you can have all the books at hand, I hope it will be much easier to do.
It is also an option to include a volume a month if you sign up for monthly bundles. The monthly bundles help save you on shipping costs and if you sign up for at least 5 books in your bundle each month, you get the Mother's Learning Library for free as well as 5 bonus books.
*Just a note to those of you who may notice such things--I changed the first 3 covers because I realized I had women on all the rest of the covers and wanted to make it consistent, seeing as it is a course designed especially for busy women and mothers. If you previously ordered the first 3 books and want to get the new covers, just contact me for a discounted price option.

It has been a busy, busy summer. I haven't been home since the end of June and won't be home until next week. I've loved every minute seeing new sights and spending time with family.
But I've still been working in spare moments here and there and thanks to my wonderful family, I have several announcements to make in anticipation of starting a new school year.
My awesome Krystal has redesigned and streamlined our store. Please check it out for some new options that I'll talk more about as we go along, including 3 new series:
1. My Book of Delights, filled with full color fine art, poetry, and beginning reader stories that align with the rotation schedule. I talk about it in one of this week's Take 5s. We'll be posting a sample shorty.
2. Our Little Cousin Series. These are perfect introductions to the countries for our children. We will also be reprinting Lucy Fitch Perkins' Twin Series and including it in this series. We have grouped them according to the rotation schedule and combined three books into one volume to save on expense for those of you who would like hard copies. We kept the open larger font for children who want to read these for themselves. There will be 24 volumes in all--the first one includes Month 1 topic, Scandinavia.
3. The World's Story: A History of the World in Story, Song and Art by Eva March Tappan. We have also grouped these stories by the rotation schedule, with Volume 1 covering US Discovery and Scandinavia. I love this set of books, but have been unable to secure a hard copy for myself. I've wanted to bring it into print for a long time. Our version will have 24 volumes of about 375 pages each. I see these as appealing more to High School students, but there are selections that would be great read alouds to younger students. A true treasure for your family library.
If you order in the next few days, you should have them in time for September.
Visit the store and take a look around!
There is now a quick reference list of the podcasts. It is archived in the files in the Facebook group or you can access it here. It can also be found in the right-hand column of the main podcast page, with links and dates for easy access.
I have just linked a new audio recording of The True Story of U. S. Grant by Elbridge S. Brooks. Brooks is also the author of The True Story of Christopher Columbus, George Washington and Lafayette for which I have provided audio versions as well. You will find the link to Grant's book on the Elementary page of the Civil War under Biographies.
Special thanks to my friend, Bill Norton, for recording this for us. He was the one who recorded Lafayette, as well.

I frequently post inspirational quotes or thoughts with fine art images in the FB group. They have now been gathered on a page so that you can quickly access them. Just click on 'quotes' in the menu bar of the main website.
I have also had many requests to make them shareable, which you can now do from that page. And please feel free to make comments there!
