Our life is hectic. Work. Doctors appointments. Play dates. Birthday’s. Events. Parties. Activities. There is always something going on, and it can be really hard to keep track of everything.
Before I became a mom, my mind was sharp. I retained pretty much everything I took in. I never forgot an appointment, I never missed an event. I was never, EVER late. My calendar was stored in my mind.
Then I had Avery and when she was born she pulled some of my brains out with her. Seriously. Something happened. I can no longer keep track of the happenings in our life. “Is her doctors appointment on Monday at 10am or Wednesday at 3pm? Wait, maybe 3pm Wednesday is that thing at the Library…no, that’s Thursday..maybe…” I just can’t keep it all together.
We keep a calendar….but I’m the only one who writes anything on it, and only if I remember to do so. If we’re invited to a play-date by a mom at swim lessons, chances are, I will forget to write it down. Then spend the whole week thinking “Why do I feel like we had plans this Saturday?”
But now, there is one place to organize schedules, converse and share precious memories safely and securely. That place is Living Tree!
Created by parents, Living Tree provides a private environment to help organize a busy family with coordination tools for parents, caregivers, teachers, coaches and others. The mobile app is available for iPhone and Android.
Living Tree supports families in three major areas:
- Shared calendar system
- Automatically integrates classes, school events, parent-teacher conferences, sports practices/games
- Real-time calendar updates with mobile notification
- Supports Outlook, Apple Cal, Google Calendar, etc
- The “Conversation” feature provides tools for parents, caregivers, teachers and coaches to securely converse with each other, share posts, media and other files that may support a child’s development
SHARING AND REMEMBERING:
- The “Memories” feature allows parents, teachers and coaches to share photos and videos
Living Tree is a modern way for tech savvy parents to coordinate, converse and share their child’s class assignments, activities, events and appointments with the network that matters most.
AND ITS FREE!!!
Living Tree is available on both apple and android smart phones/tablets as well as online, making it perfect for families and friends who utilize different platforms!
And it’s not only for families! The app is great for teachers and coaches who need to get schedules and info out to their students and teams (So much easier than those annoying phone chains we all grew up with!) It’s also perfect for clubs and groups, like Girls Scouts or Mom’s clubs!
I’m thrilled to find an app that will prevent our family from having those (sometimes daily) arguments that start with “You NEVER told me about this….”
