I have always been a planner. Type Gold personality through and through.
When I was in 3rd grade I asked for school supplies for my birthday. Walking down the office supple aisle brings a flutter. In short, teaching and organizing is simply in my DNA!!
When I started having kids of my own I decided to stay home with them, and eventually to home school. 9 years of home schooling later I just sent my oldest to traditional school for 7th grade and my baby started preschool with me this year. Three girls in competitive dance, two boys in activities, all in music, throw in a dash of scouting and other church activities and our plates are FULL!!!
How to keep track of it all and find peace amid the chose? Well, this planner is life. I do use it to organize and keep track of all of our activities, but oh so much more.
I plan my home business on the extra blank month pages included.
I track and plan our weekly family home evening activities to make them more meaningful and to remember what we are learning.
I plan vacations, holidays, gift giving.
I write down personal achievements, inspiration, and even journal events I don't want to forget.
I keep track of expenses and tax information.
My favorite part is the birthday pages where I not only keep a list of gift ideas, but take notes on what my kids love, how they are growing, and things I love about them.
This is so much more than a planner. It is a memory file. A life organizer. A dream keeper.
