  1. Flip the tables: "Why aren't you homeschooling then?" ;) One day I may try that one on family.. :P
  2. I've dropped CWP an email about it, but I'm unlikely to hear back before tomorrow due to the time differences so I thought I'd ask here. We have access to the Cloud Videos, and the student pack arrived today. There is no teacher manual included in this, or am I over looking it? Do I need the teacher manual? I know we needed it a few times over with Cover Story, & step one with Byline was to read info in the Teacher Manual.. which we don't have..
  3. They are numerous. The book is basically a retelling of OT times sprinkled with occasional history. He uses the Bible to back himself up, but even the Bible disagrees with him. Here's a smattering: Claims the Tower of Babel was built because the people feared another "deluge". That's not what the Bible says at all, and if the people feared another deluge because they knew what had previously happened wouldn't they also know the WHY of it happening? The author claims these horribly sinful people were terrified of a deluge due to their sins so they build the tower. That makes 0 sense, if t
  4. If you are doing this level are you using Unveiling The Kings Of Israel or have you replaced it? We are using it, but it's laden with problems, big problems. I'm looking to replace this book, but I'm not sure what with and am looking for ideas. :)
  5. If you're using this can I ask how you planned out the unit booklets? We're very new. ;) I am aware they are meant to be finished over 2 weeks. Did you work through them in order, skip around? Use a specific plan? It's my only draw, I'd love for it to be scheduled out from the get-go. ;)
  6. We're using World History with two this year. We're not far in as our school year has really on just begun {S. Hemisphere} We are only using the History, Living Library, & Fine Arts credit. We're using other options for math, science, and Lit. We've used World Geography before with one of mine and he hated it. There were various reasons for that, but the other one will likely enjoy it so I've held onto it for now. We are currently using the World Religions And Cultures portion of that for Bible this year with the high schoolers. :)
  7. My son is using them.. They are not essential if you're keen to read the textbook. If you'd rather have the lesson taught to you with visuals then the videos are the way to go. It's the same material in the book but Dr H goes on about it a bit more. The same with biology. We enjoyed the Biology, and are using Chemistry this year. :)
  8. Crazy story, but my parcel arrived at my front door yesterday. I wasn't expecting that, had I gotten a shipping notification I would have never contacted them or started this post. For me, I expected it to take a couple of weeks to get t me, which is why I was so stressed it hadn't been posted yet. Or rather, I presumed it had no as I never got a shipping notification about it. On the upside it's here, and I get to pour over it today!
  9. So, I finally spoke with someone else through the company. I'm not sure why I didn't get an email to say it had shipped, nor am I sure why the last person I spoke with gave me such a song and dance. In fact, everything she told me about my parcel is just mind boggling because the woman I spoke with today informed me that my parcel left their facility on the 9th and is already in my country. Mystery solved. Not sure why the last lady didn't tell me that.
  10. Good gracious, I'm very aware of how international parcels work! My items have not shipped, it's as simple as that. IF my items are on back order that is NOT what the company has told me. I did, when the items hadn't shipped after the first 5 days. I got a song and dance about how the company ships in 1-3 days and isn't open on Saturday. I thought that was a bizarre answer since I ordered on USA Tuesday time and, yes it was Saturday USA time that I was asking but didn't explain why the 4 previous days my parcel hadn't gone out. I was informed that I would be notified via emai
  11. Thanks, I wonder if because the parcel is going out internationally it make a difference, I can't imagine it would. I'm just frustrated I need the items or I wouldn't have ordered them and the waiting just to know my package is in the mail is actually very upsetting. A week seems a long time for my package to be posted in.
  12. Can anyone tell me how long it generally takes this company to ship out their physical products? I've been waiting a week and have already contacted them and got a song and dance about not being open weekends which is understandable, but at that point it had already been 5 days so I didn't understand why the order hadn't shipped before they closed for the weekend. Their websites states they ship in 48 hours. I don't want to cut my nose off despite my face, but my husband is getting antsy and talking about claiming a refund through paypal.
