Free Weekly Planner Printable
Do you want to know something? We are STILL waiting for Holly's baby to get here. I mean we have had 2 out of 3 in our family to have their babies. But no, Holly's baby has still yet to come. I mean really, come on kid, its not like we have all day. Well, I mean, we do have as much time as that baby needs to cook, but I know Holly is ready for it to come. Plus she is tired of Emily, and I asking if she's had any changes. She told me that actually and said that she would let us know of changes. So basically, shut-up. Ok, she didn't say that, but she's too nice sometimes because I would have said that.
So let's jump all over the place today, I mean that is basically my personality at most days.
I've been looking at planners. I love the idea of having this one life planner that I can put all my dates on when bills are due, track expenses, birthdays, etc.. However, there are either too many printables to choose from or not many ones to choose from to order. I found the Erin Condron ones, they look really nice and seem to have many attributes about them, but wow at the price. The problem is, I love the idea of having a planner and filling it out and marking it off. The question is, will I use it to it's fullest potential? I also, don't want to be one of these people who carry it around everywhere with me, except, I want to be one of those people. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you use a planner and if so, what is your favorite ones to use? I have found many online I could buy and have printed and then coiled. Since I do graphic design, I could also just do my own. But that takes time, and well it seems when I have time for the computer these days it's working. Although, I am not complaining about that.
Who has an iPad these days? We bought one a few years back, mainly for Dawson. Now, he takes after it, as if it is solely his. Well, it really is. Anywho, he loves watching YouTube Kids on there. So I have a love/hate relationship with it. For one, I have yet to find anything at all that is not good for him on this app. On the other hand, we allow him to watch it more than he really should. Lately, though, he has been watching this family, who films themselves and they talk about food and life. He loves watching it, and it is very informational at that too. It seems odd though for my kid to sit and watch someone else's family online. But let me tell you why I am ok with it. They talk about the importance of healthy food, organic, clean, herbs, natural medicine (no I don't mean drugs). They speak of homeschool (I am slowly becoming a huge fan of btw, don't shoot me). There are many things that I hear in the background, and it makes me say "wow," I never would have thought he would be interested in this or that it would be educational. I don't know what the show is called, I know one boy is named Axle, that's it. But I know that Dawson is learning and hearing something different than what commercials or school are teaching him.
So with that being said, maybe watching the iPad isn't all that bad. It's not like he sit's and watches it all day long. Plus, he is getting information that won't even be touched in a school setting. Wait, that's my job right? Teach him at home too? Yes, yes, I think so, we can't expect them to solely learn everything they need to know at school, we can be teachers too!
Guess what? I have a controversial question for you. How do you feel about homeschooling? I am learning more and more about it, and what I am finding is that I have had a pre-conceived mindset about it this whole time. It is nothing like I thought, in fact, it is way better!
2 documentaries I challenge you to watch on Netflix
Plant Pure Nation I am reading the China Study, and this goes along with the Author of it.
What the Health This one is my favorite. It also touches on certain associations and who actually sponsors them. That was a huge kick in the gut for me, to think we actually trusted or thought they did good.
Happy Monday and maybe next time I will be posting about a new baby from Holly!
