‘Mom on the Go’ Planner

14833180251_db3897ccf2_zThis is the time of year to start thinking about heading off to school.  Luckily I have the option to take this year off from all that craziness.  For now we have decided to not send our boys to preschool.  But that means that I have to try to keep them busy and learning for the next year so that they are ready when Kindergarten hits.  I’ve been doing a lot of research into preschool homeschooling ideas and have a few things that I would like to do with them.  This means planning though.  When I was doing some of my research I came across a day planner that looked awesome.  I was in a splurging kind of mood that day and decided to go for it.  Then I spent the next week not so patiently waiting for it.  I haven’t been this excited for something in quite a while.

The planner is published by a company called “In the Leafy Treetops” that makes day planners specifically for Mormon mothers.  I found out that they make a non-Mormon version of their ‘Mom on the Go’ planner for everyone else.  I like that they left in some very light weight religious references.  Things like daily Prayer and Scripture readings.  While I don’t plan to read the Bible anytime soon I will use them to pick up my Yoga readings again and try to spend more time on my Spiritual studies.  I will let you know what I think of the planner after I’ve been using it for a while, but so far it’s a pretty nice one.  I love the way the pages are all laid out and the extra sections at the back for longer term planning are really nice.
