Fail to Plan; Plan to Fail: A Series Review!

Fail-to-planRecently a friend who is fairly new to homeschooling gave me a call. She had a lot of questions regarding homeschooling, but her main concern seemed to be, “How do I do it all? How do I clean my house, do my laundry, school my kids, do a million other things, and still remain sane?” My one resounding answer was organization! As the old adage goes, “If you fail to plan, plan to fail.”

Now, let me be very clear. I am not perfect, nor do I always plan perfectly. There are many times I have needed to restructure my plan. Things change and so do my family’s needs, but the saying still stands true. I will not accomplish anything if I don’t at least have the building blocks set in place.

That being said, how do we go about setting up our schedules? I’m so glad you asked!

Prioritizing Life
Managing the Budget
Adding Events
Planning the Homeschool Year
Putting it all Together

Please keep in mind, these are not hard-lines which cannot be crossed. Rather, consider these as they were intended, guidelines. They are a starting point which can be changed and manipulated at any given point. What works for me, might not work for you. We should feel free to pray about what we are learning and then decide for ourselves where the Lord is leading.

May these ideas help you as much as they help me!

“And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.”
~ Habakkuk 2:2

  1. ” many hands makes light work ” is the advice I got. In theory it should makes for smooth and easy days but it doesn’t always works out.

    Summer break is in full swing and my kids are asking to start school again. I guess I will be in planning mode for the next few days
