Could you post how you keep track of everyone's schedule? Do you have a HUGE calendar somewhere that has all of the events posted? It's only the 2nd day of school, and already I'm drowning!!
I have NO fancy system...I just use a normal-sized wall calendar and write everything on there, even if I have to cram it all in with tiny words. I've tried more complicated systems, day planners, huge wall calendars and I have always gone back to my plain ol' calendar. I check it constantly to make sure I'm not forgetting something and I usually write a schedule/to do list out every day so I'll copy what's going on that day into a simple notebook I keep out on my kitchen counter.
Can I ask where you found that marble track! It would be perfect for an upcoming birthday in our house!
Here is that great wooden marble track. I'll tell you that it's not as easy as it looks to put together. It comes with a book of instructions and example but I'd say ages 5 or 6 and up could do it by themselves. I put it together with Patrick who is four. It's a favorite around here.
