How do I keep track? I have a schedules. They do karate and my middle does other sports. They were both in soccer last fall and it killed us. I can't imagine what will happen once the LO is in sports! OY!

I write everything down on my calender if it's something that I think I am going to forget. I am pretty good with remembering what is what.

We dont have to many activities but I have a wall in my kitchen that has a board that is half whiteboard & half cork. Also have a calendar next to that, everything gets written down and papers are added to the board. If I need to bring anything extra for the activity I write it on my board.

I have a Google calendar that has all our activities on it... I get reminders to my phone. Our calendar is synced with my husband's email account so he has the events on his calendar, too. Other than that, it is a lot of planning in advance to make sure things are prepared and ready to go far in advance, so I am not scrambling to find stuff as we walk out the door.
