If you do all these things the first week will go off without a hitch. The weeks after that, well, you are on your own. But at the very least you will be able to look back and say, “Hey, remember that first week? Man, I had it under control!”
It’s time to start recording all those important dates in your new school year calendar. Let the kids help out this time, or fill-out their own calendar, with a fun page of event stickers for the whole new school year!
Is it already time to start thinking about going back to school? Actually, it is. Some schools are back in session as soon as the beginning of August! If you’re one of those parents who’s hoping to transition your children back into their school schedule gracefully, you might appreciate a countdown poster to let the kids participate in the back-to-school preparation.
I always loved back to school season when I was a kid. The new clothes, new shoes, crisp notebooks that were not yet written in, sharpened pencils and pens at your disposal. It marked the beginning, a fresh start. No matter what had happened the previous school year, the slate was wiped clean. It seems then a more fitting time of the year to make some resolutions.
My kids start school in a few days. After our long, hot, busy summer, I know I should be really excited that we’re getting back to our regular routine. I mean, who isn’t happy when school resumes? Last year my friends and I actually popped open a bottle champagne at the bus stop. But this time, I’m feeling a little sad that they can’t stay home just a little while longer. I know, what the hell is wrong with me?
It’s that time of year when the kids go back to school and the artwork comes back with them. If you’re like me you probably have a on-going gallery exhibit on the refrigerator door featuring all their latest masterpieces. I thought it would be fun to make some little magnets to commemorate this special time of year. Some back-to-school magnets! What’s more back-to-school than a bunch of little apples!
