Well...for me anyway.
I spent many an hour on the interwebs searching for a planner that I could use for all 4 boys. But there was none to be found (that I liked anyway). I debated for a while on The Well Planned Day, since it was cute and girly and seemed like it might work. But I didn't want to shell out the $25 for it since I was still trying to buy the boys curriculum. Money is quite scarce when your husband is a full time student and you have 4 kids!
So what to do? I decided to make one on my own. It just so happens that I have a very intelligent husband who can make/create/design just about anything...I guess you would call him a jack of all trades! I explained to him what I wanted and it took him about 2 hours to whip something up for me. He also took the time to create a title page for me with the family crest and our homeschool name and motto. 100 blogger points to anyone who knows what it says!
I got the pages I wanted to be included all printed up and put in order. I had read on a couple of other blogs that having papers bound was inexpensive so I ran over to Kinkos to see how much. It was less than $6!
Well I love a blog with pics so here you go!
