Impatience {or why I made my own planner}


This past year I discovered The Well Planned Day planner. I fell in love with it too. So much so that I ordered one for next year for both my son and I. And I waited for them to arrive

and waited

and waited

And while I was waiting I came across New Bee Homeschooler and their free curriculum planner. And I thought about it.

and thought

and thought

Then I figured "what the heck?" I mean if I don't like it, I still have my Well Planned Day, you know? So I started printing out forms and putting them together. Then I let it sit for a few days and took a bunch of pages out. In the end, I ended up with a planner I'm pretty happy with. It feels like it will fit my needs. Some pages I got from New Bee Homeschooler and some I tweaked from Donna Young

So here is my finished planner. I hope it works out as well as I think it will!








But now I needed a new way to schedule. This year I wrote weekly assignments in my planner, copied it to my sons planner and erased like crazy when we went off track. So, I thought some more and decided to try this 





This way, I don't have to erase. When assignments get finished I just write them for the day in my daily planner and my son still knows what's supposed to happen during the week.

All in all, a new plan that I'm looking forward to implementing in July!

    1. No problem. I always try to remember where I get stuff because someone else may find it helpful! I'm not always good at it though...

I love your comments and I read them all. I'm not very good at replying to them though. It's one of my many downfalls. I hope you'll leave some anyway!
