A Great idea from daughter in law

Ever forget something you wanted to do? Then the time for doing it passed and You could no longer do it? It happens all the time, but my daughter in law has a simple way not to forget.

We visited the family down in southern California last week. So did a lot of other far away family members. New babies will cause that to happen. Darling daughter in law didn't want to miss out on doing some fun things with everyone that came so she made a wall size calender. She wrote sticky notes of options and ideas of things to do during that time. As we arrived we were reminded to look at the wall calender. Took us a bit to get the hang of it but all you had to do was move a sticky note of something you'd like to do with the family to the day you'd like to do it. Amazing. Everyone would check the days to see what was happening and it went smoothly and not once was there a conversation about "should we do......or should we do......."

I asked for more information on this wall calender and was told they use it on a normal basis so as a family they won't forget some of the things they'd like to do.

Click on the photos and see how this might work for you. Very clever!
