Are you ready for "back to school"?

It's getting close!Soon I'll be packing lunches and checking homework but before the chaos begins, here's aquick list of practical tips and items you can pick up now so that you're prepared when school comes around for real.


  • 10 glue sticks, a ruler, crayons, markers, pencils and the list goes on! Start earlypick up school supplies slowly over the summer or when the back-to-school sales start mid-summer. Don't save this for the day before school. Supplies will be low and stress will be high.

  • During the summer it stays lighter longer and we tend to slip into a later bed-time routine. Start "practicing" going to bed at a reasonable time and waking up early a few weeks before school starts so it's not such a shock to the system.

  • Stock up on lunch supplies and healthy snacks to send with the kiddos to school. Proper nutrition is vital to a successful school day.

  • Read books about the first day of school to younger kids to get them excited!

  • Talk it upsee how your kiddos are feeling about starting school so you can address concerns if they have any.

  • Get the camera ready to take those adorable first day of school pictures that you'll treasure forever.


Ihope these tips help give you a little inspiration and get you excited for the school season!
