I don't even remember what I got. All I know was that the order was almost $300. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
Since this is my first time placing an order with them, does anyone know how long their turnaround typically is?

The lady on the phone told me orders are going out within the week. Last week I placed a smaller order with them for art supplies and it took about three days to show up.

They are really fun! We've read one (Knight of Angleland) and I was dying to get the rest. Last year when I was digging around for a teacher-friend I found activities to go with some of the other books online. I can't wait to try them out!

Okay, I finally took time to look at it. How does one manage. It is huge and has too many things. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

It took me two weeks and a pile of string bookmarks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I went through each section one by one, circled what I wanted, typed it into my spreadsheet along with item # and page, and then edited later.

And I thought I was bad!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I circle ones to check out and type in their numbers online and see the pictures and read more then mark them in the book with an X (don't like), check mark (put in Wish List), circle (undecided) or L (check out from the library instead of buying - which later went on a library list). I add the ones too old for my kids onto a Word doc of subjects and resources by grade.<br><br>
OK, I did separate my Wish List items by subject to help justify the huge total I accumulated! I might be worse than you.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
I haven't actually purchased yet, but my Wish List has 44 items on it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

My RR catolog is sitting on the couch calling to me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"> It is a bit overwhelming though. I need to go through it slowly.<br><br>
Phathui5 did you know that Rod & Staff has added to the ABC Series. The new books aren't listed in the RR catolog. If you are interested, I can as my Mennonite neighbor which letter the books go up to now. I believe it stretches all the way to K now.
