Lesson planning when life is unpredictable

Have you ever wondered how you should go about lesson planning in your homeschool? It can be hard to plan in detail or for an extended period when you are working around special needs. With my own family, we’ve tried several methods and had issues with planning too far ahead. We’ve also seen a lot of struggle, however, with flying by the seat of our pants and trying to be overly flexible. Yes, I said overly flexible; ha ha… Believe it or not, there is such a thing! I’m going to share what works for us, how we work it all out, and I hope that it will make planning easier for you too.
