Its nearing that time again for kids to go back to school and children to start a routine a week or two weeks before the 1st day of school. Our 7 1/2 year old will be starting 1st grade a week before his 4 year old sister starts VPK, so, how does your family handle schedule/routine before school, what do u do? Thankyou for the advice in advance!!!!!!

This seems like an old post but managing the family schedule is always a stress point.
I have been using familycrossings.com for years. I have 30 family members including Aunts & Uncles and grandchildren. Not only do I have my kids school/sports schedules, my personal events, birthday reminders, vacation, and reunion dinners events, but I have videos, phone photos, addresses and gift lists for everyone. It is great. It is free.

I Highly Recommend MyBievo.com. This web based application is a life saver. It connects all of my family events into one central place and provides instant updates to my black berry and Google calendar. It has worked for me so well because most of my kids coaches and teachers have created groups on the bievo platform which provide me instant updates to my smart phone whenever a changed date is posted.

Youre welcome. I love and use both. Cozi since everything is right there on my phone and I know whats what, the printables to hang on the fridge everyone can add things that they want to do then on Sunday nights we pull it off and figure out whats going on for the week. extra stuff that is. :D

I also used the behavior charts for my son who has some stuff going on it helped get us get rid of some of the bad behaviors he was doing.

Do you want it to be online or one you hand print?

Online Cozi is an awesome one http://cozi.com you can do it online with your phone or what ever.

For offline (ones you can print out and write on) Chart jungle is awesome, not only schedules but chore charts, behavior, all kinds of fun stuff http://www.chartjungle.com/schedules.htm...
