    We start school EARLY in these parts! (July 31!!) So I stock up on school supplies almost year round. That way when back to school comes closer and closer.... I do not have to waste our lady PRECIOUS days of vacation at the store!!

    Have your children pick out the clothes they will like wearing to school and they should assemble the outfit the night before so as to be on time. Give your children a choice of possibly 2 breakfasts each morning so as not to have confusion.

    Just get everything prepared and ready to go the night before and it is all smooth sailing! Well at least that is what I tell myself!

    Always lay out your clothes the night before so you can change quickly.

    We pack up everything the night before.

    I try to make time for each child each day to stay up to date on their needs, thoughts, and what is happening next. We also keep a calendar of events and share with our whole family so everyone is aware of the dates.

    Always, always, get everything ready before going to sleep. Backpack, clothes, snacks, etc.

  • By JazzyTJan

    Don't ever forget your assignments and activities. Use your calendar on your phone and also write in your planner (and review it regularly).

    Summer is for staying up late and sleeping in. Well, about 2 weeks before school starts we start going to bed earlier; about 10 minutes each day. Kids bed time is 10:30pm, they're older and like to watch the weather. Stopping use of devices an hour before bed, to rest our eyes properly. Just so that once school does start there will be less of a fight during bed time.
