Don’t miss this wonderful free Mommy Planner from Cindy Rushton. She has several great pages to help you gear up for a new school year.

I keep seeing pics of these nifty spiral bound planners that people are creating, and while I love the professional look, I just can’t lock myself into one. I want to be able to move things around or add & remove pages, so I will be sticking to a pretty binder.
I don’t want to keep track of two planners, so my homeschool plans and household notebook are all in one handy place.
These pages are going in my notebook:
- ISD calendar (because my niece schools with us, we follow the school district calendar to coordinate with her siblings)
- Weekly Organizer
- Dated Lesson Planner Sheets
- Quarter Planner 1 for each subject
- Goals for the Year
- Grading Chart I don’t record grades, but my kids love that score at the top of their paper
- 99 Ways to say ‘Very Good’
- 31 Days of Praying for Your Husband
- 31 Biblical Virtues to Pray for Your Children
- 31 Days of Praying for Your Pastor
- 31 Days of Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife
- Grocery List
- Monthly Meal Planner
- Monthly Lunch Menu
- Monthly Bills I stick this in a page protector along with any bills for the month
- Gift List can’t find what I want, so I will probably create it
- Birthday Calendar
- Black Friday Price Log
I will probably add to the list as the week goes on. Is there anything you put in your planner that I don’t have listed here?
We are starting school in a week and summer break is officially over. With a heat index near 115, I will be glad when summer is over! I am ready to get back into a routine and to update this poor neglected blog.
I am calling this week Back to School Boot Camp. I will be putting together plans for the school year and the kids will be getting the house in order (of course I will be directing helping).
Here are some plans for the week:
- get kids back on school schedule (up at 8, ready for bed by 9:30)
- divide books up into a loose schedule for the year
- make copies
- write a weekly schedule
- set up a file system
- create a planner
- make new chore charts
- come up with a list of lunch ideas
I will share my plans as I finish them. I have found so many great things while researching all of this! Because time is tight this week, I will probably do either a bunch of little posts or some long lists.
Hopefully you will find some helpful ideas!!
