{a place for everything} 2011 summer schedule

There are always so many things going on in our community during the summer that we love to participate in. Here are just a few examples...

Library: summer reading program, weekly craft day, free movies, evening shows, story times, and more!

City Gardens: weekly craft day, storytimes, gardening class and water days

Nature Center: story times, nature walks

Center for the Arts: classes, exhibits, plays

Barnes & Noble:  weekly storytime

Add in park days, baseball games, festivals, and fairs, trips to the beach and the pool, and our trips, and there is just a lot of information to try and keep track of.  I don't like keeping it on my regular calendar, because we're not going to attend every single thing that's going on.  However, if it's not written down somewhere, I'll forget about the things that I really wanted to do.

So...I created a summer schedule spreadsheet, where I've listed all of the summer activities.  I post it next to my actual calendar, then I can sync the two together to figure out what we want to do for the week. I've done this for several years now, and I love it.  The kids love it too, because they can see at a glance what's going on that week, and like to put their requests in.  It's nice to use as a motivator, lol!

I tried and tried how to figure out how to share the actual excel file with you, so you could edit it and type in your own activities, but I couldn't figure it out.  If someone knows how, please let me know!

I uploaded it HERE, so you could at least download the pdf file.  You could either write things in by hand, or use it to create your own. I would also be happy to send you the file-- just e-mail me at brownpaper_packages@yahoo.com!

I use DropBox for a lot of shared files - it works for more than PDFs and it's free. Once you sign up you get access to a Drop Box folder. Within that folder is another folder called Public. If you move anything into that public folder (any format) you can mouse over it, right click Drop Box, and then choose "Get public link" and voila! You have a link where people can download any kind of file. I use this almost exclusively now for sending print-quality images - no more clogging up people's inboxes with large attachments!
I don't work for Drop Box - I'm just a happy customer. If you can call me a customer - I'm still on the free plan.

That's a neat idea. You could probably use Google Docs to share it on here and let people save a copy.

could you share it as a google document?? They let you upload excel files too and then select it as a shared file and then I think you can give a link to it? Something like that. Thanks for sharing!

I couldn't get google docs to work for me, but I should probably try it again!
