When school started last week, we did great with getting off on the right foot. I was excited and proud (and frankly a little shocked) that James remembered how to get himself ready for school. He's doing great and actually enjoying doing his homework (probably because it's math on the computer, so it's like a game- they're smart these days!) but all the little reminders about dates, school projects, doctors appointments, holidays, conferences, and we haven't even gotten the sports' schedules yet - was making me feel super anxious! When all those things start swimming in my head, I know I need to write them down in one place so I don't lose my mind.
I took a few minutes yesterday to download Jen's pretty printable calendar and get everything regarding kids, family, school and holidays all written out through the end of the year. And I've got it right where I can see it in kitchen command central. I'm breathing a sigh of relief and doing a little happy dance now! And the kitchen is clean, so Monday was extra good!
I'll be sharing more of my sanity-saving calendar project over on Jen's blog on Thursday, so please stop by and say hi!
