    I make a very loose schedule before the school year starts, with an approximate pace for each subject, so I can gauge as I go if I need to play catch -up at any point, or if I can slow down. I have to do this b/c I do not do structured home school all year and I also like to give my son an easier Friday fun day. My son requires a lot of downtime, though, and likes to have a summer of independent, un-schooling. Most people here, I think, go year-round so I don't think that is an issue for most.

    Edited to add: I am not fussy about this at all. I put it in Excel, organized by subject and week number.

    I have a planner I designed, and I keep it in a very nice mini binder. It is very easy to use, gentle on the eyes, and I have considered selling PDFs or post-printed sets of it someday on Etsy. I use it if we have extensive lessons we need to work through or something like a field trip throws our week off. However, most often this fall I use a calendar APP and simply keep us on a routine. I limited our outside classes two two afternoons. They are late enough in the day they don't interfere with our lessons, but early enough not to screw up dinnertime and/or bedtime. This has made planning 400 times easier.
