You Want to Have This One in Order

This is a story that starts with a panic but ends with a happy resolution. I hope after watching the video below you won't repeat my mistake! But just in case, there's also a practical checklist for your peace of mind.

When summer break comes close we are often so with the "end of the school year" events – farewell parties, kids’ recitals and final games, annual evaluations, completions and celebrations at work. We go through packing lists, count days till our summer trip and imagine how we will reconnect with our family of origin.
No wonder that sometimes the most important and obvious things slip out of our attention!

As always we're looking forward to hear from you! Share your stories and thoughts in the comments below.
