We needed a cool new graphic for Sonlight.com this morning. Unfortunately, Dave--our incredibly talented graphic designer--is at home watching his daughter at the moment. And since this is a Friday and I'm heading out soon, I won't be around to make a site update when Dave is able to make the graphic.
So, the task fell to me.
Thankfully, Dave saves his work in editable Photoshop files. So I grabbed one of his earlier works, edited the text, added a couple images from the site, and...

I think it turned out pretty well.
I could create something that turned out far better than had I done it on my own because I was able to build on the work Dave had already done.
That's what Sonlight hopes to do for you: Let you build your home educational experience on the work we've done for you.
I'm not saying that you couldn't do this yourself. I'm not at all inferring that your homeschooling skills are at all like my artistic competence--or lack thereof. Our goal is not to make you feel like you need us to educate your children. You don't. Our goal is to offer you the best tools and resources packaged in a way so that you can quickly, easily and enjoyably build from there.
In fact, if you like creating your own plans and would rather not build on the work of others in this area, Sonlight may not be right for you.
But if this is an area where having the prep work done for you will be helpful, by all means: Let us help get you started on your homeschool adventure!
