Earlier this month, I shared a screenshot of the checklist my girls have been using for their school work (as part of my “Homeschool Planning Made Easy” post), and a few people emailed to ask if it was available as a printable. So today it is! Click here to download or print the homeschool checklist. […]

(And truthfully, I have at least one more post in mind to […]
