They’re HERE!

Today was a big day at Knowledge Quest! Our new books – A Child’s Geography: Explore the Classical World – arrived, mostly safe and sound. While the books themselves arrived intact and in great condition, the truck that delivered them experienced a little mishap on the way into our driveway when the back wheels slid into the ditch. I’d show you a photo, but the photo is held hostage on my father-in-law’s iPad which went with him out of town for a long weekend. Maybe I’ll upload it later when I get access. :)

Of course, none of that would have happened IF the trucking company delivered the books on the date and place specified in the instructions. But I digress…

The good news is that we packed up over half of the pre-orders for Classical World. It was a big, successful day. Take a peek inside the office and check out the packing production line:

Here are the two large crates of books that arrived yesterday:


This morning, we rallied the troops. Todd inspected each box on the crate for damage and prepared the orders for filling:


Next, a couple of little cutie-pies assembled boxes. They were the “pizza delivery” kids, since their boxes looked like pizza boxes. Check it out:







Once the boxes were assembled, our super helpful temporary workers (okay, our kids) packed up the orders. First, Lydia stuffed the books into padded envelopes to protect them during their journey to your mailboxes:



Then, Rachel placed the stuffed envelopes into the “pizza” boxes, taped them up and labeled them with names and weights:



Then, it’s time for the labels. Ellie, our newest employee (but we already don’t know what we would do without her!), created the labels for the boxes then delivered the boxes to the car:




Off to the car:





And now these books are on their way to you! We hope that you enjoy them and find them to be worth the wait. Truly, we have the best customers in the world. Really. We mean it! Now, to do it again tomorrow. Go team!
