If you've tried that link recently and it didn't work, please try again. They turned the ordering off recently, but we asked them to turn it back on since they are delayed w/ the shipping. Every day we are asking when they will be shipped and the vendor says "any day now" and that they are sorry for the delay that was caused by a breakdown of some of their machines.

As a consolation for this delay, we have 2 things we can do.
1) We are giving out the link to view the book digitally HERE.
2) Seniors can get autograph sheets from Ms. Amanda so that they can collect signatures and put them in the book when they arrive.
