Animations on the timeline not in the correct order

Feb 15, 2015

I am trying to create a title slide with animation in the slide master so that every title slide I use in the project will act the same. I have created two shapes. One shape is a background for the slide title, and the other is a background for a small text box that I will use for a subtitle. 

I have placed the Title text box on top of the shape for its background, and another text box on top of its background shape. I am trying to use the Fly In animation to bring all of the items in from the left. I want the shapes to come in first, then the text. For some reason, no matter how I set the timeline, the text flies in before the shapes. I have attached images to show what I mean.

I have tried grouping the objects and setting the animation for the group. I have tried setting the animation on each layer separately, and I have tried setting the animation on each layer, and then grouping them. I can't think of anything else to try, other than creating an image and animating that. The problem with that is, the title and subtitle text will have to be added to the image. It should be editable text, because this is a template for many lessons in a very large e-learning course.  
I would appreciate any suggestions on how to make this work.
