Around this time each year I like to put together a little round-up of the planning resources especially for homeschoolers. And I wrap it up with some FREE printable planning pages that I’ve made for my own family, and for my readers to use as well if they’d like (be sure to scroll to the end to find them). Maybe one of these years I’ll get around to making a full-blown planner…. maybe.
