Organization Calendars

With it almost being Back to School time (yea!), I'm trying to get myself organized. One of my favorite tools is the line of Mom's Plan It calendars. I just got my Mom's Plan It Engagement Planner today since it starts this month and goes thru December of 2011. I keep it on my island and everything goes in it! A great way to keep track of what the kids have going on!

I also ordered the Wall Calendar and the Pocket Planner (both not available yet). It's nice to have a place where everything if I could only teach my hubby to use them!

What are your favorite calendars/organizational strategies for back to school?

Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt

If you’re in Hingham today, head on over to the Derby Street Shoppes for the grand opening of Pinkberry frozen yogurt—a great summer alternative to ice cream!  It’s their very first store in Massachusetts!

Not Simply Beads

IMG_1651 My daughter and I signed up for a “scrabble tile pendant” class at Not Simply Beads at Village Landing Marketplace in Plymouth last Thursday night. We had so much fun! We both learned how to make scrabble tile pendants (so cute!) and had some nice mom/daughter time. Not Simply Beads has a ton of classes from necklaces to bracelets to painting and more! You can see their schedule online here. They even do birthday parties…lots of fun for a preteen girl party. (and moms…their classes would make a great girls nite out too!) Check them out next time you’re in Plymouth!

I love stargazing with my family.  The night sky was amazing to look at this past weekend!  I noticed a really bright star in the southwestern sky and found out it was Venus (with Mars and Saturn right nearby).  This weekend coming up is a great time to get outside and watch the skies…the Perseids Meteor Shower is this weekend.  It’s peak is the early morning of August 13th but you can generally see the meteors starting August 11th.  The best time to watch just before daybreak while it’s still very dark but you can start viewing after midnight.  I found this great site that tells you what’s going on in the night sky every night:  EarthSky.  The kids are excited to watch for the “shooting stars” since we can usually find a few without having to stay up to midnight with them, lol!

Classes at Jordan Hospital

Came across a class I’m going to have my 10 year old son take called Home Alone and Staying Safe.  They have it once a month on a Saturday.  My son is rarely home alone but I thought this would be really good for him to have under his belt.  It’s for kids in 4th and 5th grade and is 3 hours long.  They learn about safety, first aid and preventing emergencies as well as basic self defense.  Cost is $40.

They also have a Babysitter Safety Course for kids aged 11 1/2 and up to teach new & seasoned babysitters about safety, child care skills, first aid and how to handle emergencies.  This class is 4 hours long and also costs $40.

Great classes for us moms with older kids!
