There is so much to do, so many lists running in my mind, on paper or on our calendar. It's a fun but very busy time of year. Being organized is key in lowering the stress level that comes with getting 4 kids prepared for school. I will share some ideas and better yet, some links for some great ideas to help you start the school year off on the right foot.
1. Get a good calendar system: whether its a traditional dry erase calendar or some of these cool chalkboard wallies... cork boards are also good to help keep everything that comes from school in one place. Last year I finally got in the habit of reading the school flyer with my dry erase pen in hand, and transfering dates, deadlines, and events right onto our main board and then tossing those papers in our recycle bin. It kept down on a lot of clutter.
