I posted a long time ago about the importance of managing just ONE calendar for EVERYTHING.  (You can read that old post here.)

So here it is- the last couple weeks of summer and it’s time to load up our home calendar with all the important school events.  School holidays, days off, parent teacher conference days, picture days, yada yada.  This year I get to check TWO calendars- one for the girls’ gradeschool, and then Trevor’s middle school.  Goodie.

And since my business involves daycare children from other schools, I get to also incorporate their school calendar into our family planner.  Cuz a day off for my kiddos doesn’t necessarily mean a day off for their kiddos and it’s a good idea to know what’s coming ahead of time. 

Oh but wait, there’s more!  Football schedules, soccer schedules (both teams), dance schedules- I don’t even have any of those yet!

Anyway, my point- maintain a single calendar.  Take the time to load your kids’ school calendars onto it so that you are always “in the know”. 

That’s my public service announcement for the day.

You’re welcome!
