I love, love, love to plan and organize - you may already know this about me. And as much as I've enjoyed scouring the internet for good ideas for each week of Cycle 1, I honestly don't see myself having the time to do this for Cycle 2. Instead, I'm going to use Colleen's wonderful plans at Sola Gratia Mom!
(How cute is she!)
Colleen has Weeks 1-12 planned out with daily reading and activities. She also has included project ideas for Wonderful Wednesdays (which are so great; I'm seriously considering organizing a group like this for our community!). Click here to read all about the plans and to download a sample. Click here to read Brandy's review at Half-a-Hundred Acre Wood (Side note: Brandy's like the CC team coach or All-star, so I link back to her whenever I can. If you've never been to her site - it's really hard to imagine a CC mama never going there - you really need to check it out!).
So, these are the plans that I personally am going to use for Cycle 2. I'll still search out books and links, but I really don't plan on spending hours each week trying to flesh-out CC in my own way. Why reinvent the wheel? I've followed her awesome blog all year, love her stuff, and have used her projects already in Cycle 1 - so I know these plans are the real deal. I'll add stuff here and there to fit our needs, but these plans are going to be the backbone of our year. And all I can say is Whew! What a load off of my mind!
Colleen has graciously offered to give away a set of plans for Weeks 1-12 to one blessed reader. Would you like to win?! Simply leave a comment telling me how you're planning for Cycle 2. The giveaway will end on Thursday, May 2.
Update: Congratulations to Taylor Y. for winning the plans!
