Getting Ready for the New School Year

Dear FlyLady,

Just wanted to add my two cents on the FlyLady calendar.  We start our new calendar on Sept 1st of every year.  When I got our calendar, my DD (7) and I sat down and planned our next year.  We put ALL of her school stuff on it (no more calling to see if it’s free dress, fun run T-Shirt or uniform.)

I called Grandma and got all the new family birthday’s on the calendar.  Then sat down and added my church classes that I’ll be taking as well.  I use little stickers I can write on as well as the stickers you provide.  It is so fun because it is already so colorful.  My DD knows to put stuff on the calendar and then it gets done.  She checks it everyday.

My brother called and asked what I was doing.  I told him I was preparing my calendar for the year.  He thought it was odd, but then commented that we have to do things different than Mom and Dad did so we can TEACH our children what we didn’t learn (he’ll be a brand new Daddy in soon.) So, not only am a teaching my DD how to use a calendar, but maybe my DB as well!!!

Thanks for all you do!!!!!
