Website Down

I'm sorry, but our website has been down for a day or two as the cart server owner migrates to a new server. It will be another day, I think, and all will be up and running again.

Thanks for your patience!
I am not able to access it to see what orders were placed over the weekend, but I will get the orders out as soon as possible once the servers are back up.
God bless

End of Summer

Wow- my last post was in May! I didn't realize that I hadn't posted something in so long. But that's probably a good thing since one goal I had for the summer was to spend less time on the computer and more time looking in my children's faces.

And now . . .  summer is at an end (almost)!

I wanted to post a long and rambling tract about my impressions after the Catholic Marketing Network trade show, but I just haven't had time. I will say, however, that the show never ceases to inspire me and make me feel part of something great and glorious.

Here are a few new things I saw that I think homeschoolers will find interesting:

Lisa Hendey's new book is due out this fall.

This new DVD series will also be ready this fall:

I saw a little clip of it, and it is a beautifully filmed wide overview of the Church photographed all over the world. I will be doing a more indepth review of it for the magazine and after I have had a chance to view the whole thing.

Lastly the Didache religion course series has now come out with semester courses which focus on particular aspects of the catechism. Some of them are condensed versions of the full year courses and some have new information. There is one just on the Sacraments and one on the Blessed Trinity. I think having the option for a smaller book will be great for homeschoolers, both for the pocketbook and for the schedule.

Hillside news in the next post!!
