It’s the first day of school, and the papers start streaming in — forms to fill out, signatures required on endless packets, schedules for classes, contracts for school-issued equipment, and you’re already overwhelmed with the onslaught. In addition to the paper streaming in and out of your kids’ backpacks, there’s the sports teams, dance classes, appointments, open houses, meetings and other extracurricular activities and clubs that pepper the weekly calendar, demanding an advanced logistics degree to get everyone to the right place at the right time. The school year crashes in on the home like a tsunami, and the debris tends to flow all over the house. What’s a family to do? A simple internet search can give you lots of great tools and ideas for a “Command Center” to handle it all.
