The roar is deafening as thousands of pennies pour down chutes into cloth sacks.
It's been a long while since I went on a tour of the Denver Mint, but the sound still sticks between my ears. Money raining from the sky. There was something compelling about that.
And there's something compelling about tours in general. Pulling back the curtain and seeing behind the scenes is fascinating. One person's daily life becomes an incredible new world to another.
That's why I love creating the Behind the Scenes clips for the MathTacular and Discover & Do DVDs. (And I spent some time working on the MathTacular4 Behind the Scenes--BTS--segment today.) Showing off a little of what we've done to make these videos available to you is not only educational and inspirational, but also gives me an opportunity to invite you into our world for a few minutes.
Now I ask you: Is there anything we do here at Sonlight that you're interested in seeing? Naturally, I can't share all our awesome secrets that make Sonlight an absolutely spectacular homeschool company <smile>, but I'd love to "show you around" or pull back the curtain just a little.
