If you're a homeschooler, you'll know what I mean by "box day". If you're not a homeschooler, "box day" is what we affectionately call the day when our new homeschool curriculum is delivered. Homeschooled kids (especially those using Sonlight) are always thrilled when new boxes arrive on the doorstep.
So, I placed our Sonlight order on Monday - Core 3, Science 3, and LA 3. The order shipped yesterday, and is due to arrive via FedEx tomorrow. The bummer is that tomorrow is a full day for us with lots of outside activities, including a 7:30 pm soccer game. So by the time we all get home, we're likely to be too tired to enjoy box day. Watch out Friday, though!
I'm always amazed at Sonlight's efficiency. Sonlight is a literature-rich curriculum, so if your family loves to read and is homeschooling (or wants to be), check it out - there's a link on this page.
So now you know about box day. We won't even talk about "catalog fever". :)
