Lets go back to school

By Blog Author on Tues. Sept. 4th, 2017


It’s time for the kiddos to head back to school! The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time, nothing beats putting on your new clothes, gathering up all of your new school supplies and reuniting with friends that you might of missed over the summer. The parents also get a little bit of a break, for 8 hours a day they do not have to worry about finding a sitter when they are unavailable, or trying to find a way to cure that afternoon boredom. However, this school season brings a lot along with it. There is PTA meetings, sports practice, games, recitals, concerts, homework and the list goes on. It can get extremely overwhelming!

Staying organized is key! Making sure everything that needs to be done or attend is written down. This will make sure nothing gets overlooked. A large desktop sized calendar in a family room of the house allows everyone to see what is going on in the days to come. Also, use your calendar to create a schedule for everyone. Writing down upcoming events will help you ensure there is time set aside everyday for homework, family chores, showers, and downtime.

Even if your organization isn’t on point 100% of the time, and you find yourself rushing to that 5:00 soccer practice that got overlooked while the kids eat lunch in the car know that you are creating great memories for your family. We sincerely hope all of you have an amazing back to school experience, and if you find yourself overwhelmed just think, winter break will be here before you know it.

Please share your back to school photos with us on our facebook! We would love to see them.
