There is one thing that has helped keep me on track: A Calendar. Not just a calendar the oil company dropped off to promote their business. This is a simple calendar that I created on Excel to fit my family's needs. It works as long as I put in the right information (i.e. the day Eli's nature class starts was not yesterday, but next week).
|There are rows for each family member. I also highlight each thing for each member in a different color. Yes, I'm pink. And no, nature class did not start on the 6th.|
|I print out on two sheets of card stock and then glue them together. I had to use extra strong magnets to hold up the calendar.|
|Merging cells together when the boys all have one activity.|
Finding what works for you and your family is key.
