Three journals later, I’m still using my bullet journal and loving it! Last year I should have done this but with a new baby and still trying to figure out homeschool life, I didn’t but I finally have. Have what? I’ve set up a homeschool bullet journal! I knew that I wanted to have a homeschool planner but we follow a more eclectic style and I couldn’t find something that met both my needs and their needs so I created one.
