Well, it's the second day after finishing work for the summer and I finally made it outside for some hugely needed yard work. The last few days of the school year were filled with, "We're going to do XYZ better next year," and my wild PT friend, Katrien, and I wrote notes to ourselves about how we plan to manage the enormous amount of computer-based "paperwork" next school year.
Although I love using a paper calendar to jot down the to-dos for each day and refer to my one-page-per-day calendar all day long, I realized this year that I need to start up next fall using MS Outlook again, and also to use it for special notes I might refer to during the year. The search features in the Outlook calendar make finding key words a breeze and this helps so much when you're trying to recall when you spoke to a parent or dropped off a piece of equipment that no one can find when the hot days of June roll around.
Keep your eyes open for the shimmering of blue-tail skinks; they're my favorite.
