For our family, and I bet for lots of your families too, June is the most insane month. We have so many things happening this month with many moving pieces, I am desperately trying not to drop the ball. The school year rolls to a close, so we are inundated with parties, spirit weeks, playdates, camp prep, summer planning, Siella’s birthday, and our ten year wedding anniversary, all mixed and piled on top of our already hectic schedule. I haven’t had a second to breath, so needless to say, some ball dropping has taken place.
Take today for example. I knew it was spirit week for Siella and Ryder, and like most years, figured the theme was same across the grades. Today I thought was “sports day”, so both kids walked to school in their sports attire, only to get up to school and see the kindergarteners dressed in their “Wacky Wednesday” attire. Siella looked as if she wanted to kill me. I was tempted to run back home to get her a wardrobe change, but with a morning meeting, there just wasn’t anytime. Fortunately, Gemma decided to wear cat ears and a lei as her normal attire, so I threw those on Siella and called her wacky! At least I tried, right?!
I know some of these mishaps are bound to happen, so I’ve been in constant search on how our family of five can be in sync! Just yesterday, a new app called Picniic found it’s way into my inbox. It happens to be a virtual family assistant, and I immediately needed to know more about it! Picniic helps families get more organized, productive, and connected than ever before. It is a family organizer for every member the family!

I am thrilled to announce I have become one of the FIRST EVER Picniic Ambassadors!

Picniic sounds AWESOME! I have three kids, two dogs, one husband, and two blogs to wrangle. I think Picniic could help make my life so much easier!
I love this idea! I have 6 kids, this sounds very helpful. I will have to check it out!
This sounds like a great app to keep on top of everything. I’m a huge Outlook and alarm person, but that means that all of my scheduling is only accessible to me, often leaving my boyfriend in the dark. He uses Outlook at work. This looks like a great way for the two of us to get on the same page.
This app sounds amazing to be able to keep things together. With our hectic schedules this would be so perfect!
June is a really crazy month for us as well. I will have to try the Picniic app. It sounds like it will be a big help.
I need to download the new Picniic app. I am always saying I could use an assistant. I am excited to give this a try.
I need all the organizing help I can get! This app sounds like it does everything I need. I’m especially intrigued by the meal planner.
What a great app! I love finding new apps that I know my kids will enjoy. Thanks, going to download this now.
I want to have all those features in one app! This is like our online calendar but as a superhero! I cat wait to get it. I hope they have it for android!
Our crazy month is May, and it always wipes me out. This is definitely something we’ll be checking out. Thanks!
I have to keep everything on my calendar to keep track. It’s great when you find s aystem that works for you, it’s a great relief.
Wow this sounds like such a useful app for families. Going to have to check it out for sure! Congrats on becoming a Picniic ambassador!
