This is the first year I've had all my kids in school! My youngest just started preschool a few days a week so I'm determined to become a more organized person. Starting with our family schedules and calendar. I've always struggled with the keeping a family calendar. When I have a paper calendar I am afraid to write stuff down because I don't want the paper messed up if plans change. This is especially true for things like workouts or menus that are constantly skipped...or changed before dinner. I tried a dry erase calendar but many times the carefully written schedule "accidentally" gets erased by a preschooler so they can do more important things like color.
So I decided to build my own calendar that met all my picky expectations. I am loving it because it's a chalkboard and I love chalkboards. Plus the calendar is magnetic and the spaces are a big 4"x4" giving lots of room to fit in all the activities of a busy family.
