Tracking travel, business needs, and homeschooling is a huge undertaking with many notes and resources required to stay organized. Check out why when talking about Homeschool Planet, Shannan says, “I have saved tons of ink and paper! But, more importantly, I’ve saved my sanity, kept the kids organized for their lessons, and freed up time to concentrate on other aspects of our life.” Read her excellent article on keeping her homeschool organized and ready to create adventure here.
