We actually started our homeschool year last Monday. It is hard to believe that this is our 16th and final year of homeschooling…Jordan, my baby, is a high school senior. This is the 1st time I’ve had to teach 12th grade because Aaron was duel enrolled at State College of Florida for all but 1 class his senior year…and that 1 class was a video driven self-study course. This means I had to do extra research to choose Jordan’s curriculum. After one week I think we are doing well and settling in.
Usually, I am a very organized person but last year life got in the way of our homeschooling and it was the most unorganized year we ever had. This year I am trying the organizational website AboutOne.com. AboutOne is a digital filing system and more. I have entered all of Jordan’s curriculum for the year, I really wish I had this 16 years ago and I could have a full record of everything we used-it would come in handy when I mentor new homeschooling moms. I can also enter his extracurricular activities, his volunteer service and even scans or photos of any projects he does.
AboutOne isn’t just for recording your kid’s school information either. On the site you can set up info for all of your family members, even your pets! You can keep track of medical histories, mailing lists, home improvement projects, even your possessions are all stored on a secure site in one place. On AboutOne you can learn how to declutter and save all those stray papers right on the website. There are articles and videos on AboutOne that show you how to get organized using their site too.
You can get a 17 day free trial to check out AboutOne and see how it will help keep you more organized this school year. The 17 day Free Passport gives you 17 full days of usage with no expiration date (requires no credit card information). Use each of your 17 days whenever you like. Our Yearly Plan gives you a full year of access to AboutOne for the low price of $30 per year.
