March 2018 Planning Pages – Free Printable

Here comes March! I don’t know how your year has been going, but February seems to have been flying by. 

School has been keeping us busy, along with a swim meet, volunteering, and a weekly evening service our church has been holding. The kids and I have all been helping with childcare, which makes the weeks go by even more quickly. Add in co-op classes and life, and good grief. 

I’m hoping March has a little more breathing room. 

We’ve also had crazy-fickle weather here! We go from 70 degree days to ice/snow closing down everything only two days later. (Today we are relishing the 80 degree temps and the kids are outdoors bouncing around). 

Even though it’s not the start of the year, maybe you’d like to get organized along with me in March. To help you out, I have a free download of my March 2018 Personal Planner Pages – try them out this month and see how they work for you.  

A Peek Inside My Planner

If you’d like to take a look at how I’ve set up my yearly planner, I’ve explained it more in this post here, as well as given links to my favorite binder and colorful tabs (because pretty makes life fun too, right?).

This year I’ve done a little something different and pulled my planner out of the binder and had it spiral bound at Staples. It has worked wonderfully and I love it this way!!

Purchase the Yearly Planner

Otherwise, if you like the layout and want to start planning out the rest of your year now (and 2018 as well), purchase the full Yearly Planner for $4.99. The calendar includes month-at-a-glance pages and dated weekly pages through December 2018. There is also a link to bonus pages and additional covers for the planner. 

Don’t miss my student planner and weekly homeschool planner – available as well!

Don’t Miss The Daily To-Do List

Daily to do list free printable

 
My Daily To-Do List is pretty basic, but hopefully it will work for you too. There is an area to make a list of things to accomplish, household goals, appointment, meals for the day, and even a space to record exercise and water intake. Each page in the document is identical so you can print them off, cut the page in half, and have two lists. If you print them front to back, you’ll have four to-do lists and save a little paper.

Hope you all have a wonderful month!! I’d love to hear your plans!

 

November 2017 Planner for Mom – Free Printable

Can you believe that we are in the final stretch of 2017? Someone mentioned how many days there are until Christmas and I had to look again – it’s crazy how much time we seem to have at the start of the year, and yet how quickly it seems to have gone by! 

November is shaping up to be crazy-town in our house. McKenna is in the last few weeks of preparing for her performance in Les Miserables and she begins full performances on November 12th (her 15th birthday). We have family coming in from out of town to see the musical and then another visit from more family the week of Thanksgiving. 

Kaleb also has his First Lego League competition and life continues on in every other area – but it will be fun! I’m really hoping to get some meals made ahead of time too, especially as we head into performance week, otherwise we are going to be feeling the crazy! 

For the blog I’m working on a few printables: a few preschool printables and finishing an update on the Yearly Planner, as well as a daily “to-do” list (simplified). 

If you’d like to get organized along with me, you can download the November 2017 Personal Planner Pages and try them out this month. I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming days.

*NEW* Weekly Homeschool Planner

For the past three years I have been working on something behind the scenes, but never got around to actually DOING anything about it – as in sharing it with you. If I’m being honest there are a lot of things I’ve started and never completely finished. The main reason is perfectionism. 

It’s something I’ve struggled with for a very long time. While it may seem like I procrastinate on projects (which I do, in a way), the honest truth is – if it isn’t matching up to what I picture in my head, something inside me shuts down and doesn’t keep going. My brain has a million ideas, and there isn’t enough time. I can’t get it put together the way I envision, so it gets pushed aside. 

The last few years have been a process of me working toward getting over that hump, one baby step at a time. I’m definitely not all the way there yet, but maybe you can relate? 

One of the things I’ve been working on is a paper and pen version of my homeschool planner. I’ve been using it the past few years and love it – it’s simple but pretty. Efficient. While I love my other planner, staying off my laptop during school time has been important to me. This planner makes me smile (and that’s a great thing) and keeps my focus on the four people in front of me, rather than off on a rabbit trail. For my brain too, putting pen to paper really helps me connect the dots and remember things.

Because I love it so much, I really want to share it with you all – and I truly appreciate your patience in waiting with me.  I’m still tweaking a few things, but the best part is, I can share those tweaks via a bonus download page available only to those who purchase the planner! 

A Peek Inside the Weekly Homeschool Planner 

A few things to know about this planner: 

  • 8.5” x 11” undated pages – over 150 pages to use year after year (just like our Student Planners)
  • Colorful – not overly crazy, but subtle. Pretty makes planning fun!
  • Plenty of room for both weekly planning and a month-at-a-glance overview.
  • 10 subject areas with lined planning space
  • Planning pages include a month-at-a-glance, a weekly layout, homeschool vision, homeschool requirements, curriculum planning, daily schedules, and more.
  • Bonus download page (password protected) where you can find additional pages to add to your planner: curriculum wish list, field trip planning, goals for children, names/addresses, notes, unit planning, yearly attendance, and (coming soon) editable monthly and weekly pages.
  • 2 layouts: one labeled Monday-Friday and another with no days of the week so you can write in your own schedule 

A quick note: Our printer will print BORDERLESS. It is one of the paper choices in our printer settings. Our front and back covers were printed onto cardstock and then laminated for extra durability. We use a heavy weight paper (24 lb.) to print the planner and make the pages a little thicker.

Purchase Your Copy of the Planner 

If you would like to purchase a copy of the new Weekly Homeschool Planner, you can do so by clicking the link below

This planner is undated so you have the option of printing off a new copy each year. The pdf planner is available for $10 and you are more than welcome to print off copies for yourself – this year and in years to come. Please note the Weekly Homeschool Planner is only available as a pdf download and prints off double-sided. 

Your purchase also allows access to a ‘buyers only’ page where optional pages will be added including additional dated covers and other pages as readers/users request.

I truly hope this planner is a blessing to you all!

 

 

September 2017 Personal Planning Pages (FREE Printable)

 

 

Here we go!! School is in full swing in our house and after Labor Day the real fun kicks in – swim team! For our family that means multiple pools and practice times for the kids. We are fortunate to have an extra driver in the house this year and will be taking advantage of her services. :)

Other than that, I’m hoping things will settle into a great routine. Summer always throws everything out of whack and I’m looking forward to a bit more normalcy.

April 2017 Planning Pages – Free Printable

While I know it seems soon to share planning pages for April, the first of April is in just a little over a week. Can you believe it??

The good new though is spring is officially here!! Of course we had a lovely snowstorm (finally) to wrap up winter and now we are looking forward to some warmer days and lots of time outside. March is wrapping up with lots of travel for me, speaking at Teach Them Diligently in both Arkansas and Tennessee, but I am SO excited to meet some of you all at both conferences. It’s one of my favorite parts of all the travel – the plane rides, not always. Airsickness and I tend to be friends, and that’s never fun. 

This April Laurianna will be turning 16! We have a party planned, Easter to celebrate, and my mom will also be having her second hip replacement (prayers are always appreciated). Her recovery from her right hip replacement in January has been great and we are looking forward to having her movement be so much better this summer. 

If you’d like to get organized along with me, you can download the April 2017 Personal Planner Pages and try them out this month. I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming days.
