Seminar : Get Organized, Mom!

Westport Road Church of Christ

Join me on Friday at the Westport Road Church of Christ in Louisville, KY for my all-time favorite organizing presentation for the Mom2Mom Kick-Off Event!

What: “Get Organized, Mom!” Seminar
When: Friday, August 26th @ 6:30pm
Where: Westport Road Church of Christ, Louisville, KY [ map ]
Cost: Free!

Being a mom is the single most challenging (and most rewarding) 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year, entire-lifetime experience. Getting some help along the way as your children grow—infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and beyond—is simply the smart thing to do!

I will share plenty of practical tips and ideas including how to:

  • keep track of everyone’s schedule,
  • manage the influx of household paperwork,
  • store clothes, toys, art supplies, and sports gear,
  • stay organized as the needs of your family change, and
  • cultivate your marriage and personal interests (guilt-free).

Bonus: There will be plenty of door prizes, handouts, and ideas to take home!

I can hardly wait! Hope to see you there!

Featured Download : Back to School Checklist

Today, Amanda officially turns 6 years old! And in only two weeks’ time, she starts 1st grade! Where did the summer go? And where did my baby go? She’ll have full days at school this year (that start far too early in the morning, if you ask me) and I’ll be putting my business goals into full gear. By the end of the 2010/11 school year, neither of us will be the same!

Back to School ChecklistBut, first things first… It’s time to gather up school supplies in preparation for that first day of the new school year (August 10th here in Georgetown). This fine checklist should do the trick… Enjoy!


Note : If you have a favorite checklist or chart or article that you’d like to see included, please let me know! I’d love to feature your favorites! [ FYI : Quality design is a must! ]

Mommy Brag : Kindergarten Graduation !!

Can you believe it? Just yesterday (wasn’t it?), Amanda started Kindergarten… and now the school year is over! She officially graduated this morning!

Kindergarten Graduation - Amanda

Earlier this week, I was treated to a special preview… an ultra-exclusive solo performance of the ceremony’s graduation songs! (The photo below was captured during the so-called “sign language song” at graduation this morning. Such a sweetie!)

Kindergarten Graduation - Songs

I’m so happy that the photo of Amanda with her Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Hillman, turned out fairly well… it’ll soon find its home in Amanda’s “memory box.”

Amanda & Ms. Hillman

…and to think we just got our school routine figured out! Oh, well… at least we’re ready for first grade, right? 😉
