We are less than a month away from going back to school, which seems crazy! I feel like summer just started. I have already started making lists, piles, and organizing so I can at least try to be a little ahead of the game. Here’s how we are prepping for back to school:
Live up summer!
Did you make a summer bucket list? We still have a handful of things we want to accomplish, and I plan on living it up! Brayden’s 8th birthday is tomorrow, and we have a trip to the zoo planned as well! Lately, the kids have been into their block building and it’s all over the living room. I just take a deep breath and know that in a few short weeks, they will be busy learning at school.
Make a list.
Besides school supplies, we have a few other things on our list before school starts. Kenley is going into Kindergarten so she has to have a dental exam, eye exam, and physical. I am almost done gathering all of that paperwork! I am hoping to get our school supply shopping done in the next week to avoid the rush. Being prepared means I can ease into our last week of summer without the stress.
Do some school review.
Kenley is eager to learn, and besides a Kindergarten packet her teacher sent home at the end of the school year, I picked up a few workbooks for both her and Brayden. She’s been working on writing her name, reading, and doing some beginner math. It’s been harder to carve out the time lately, but she likes to sit at the table for even just 10 minutes with me. Oh, and a snack!
I stock up on Goldfish® crackers for the kids because they are an easy snack, and one I feel good about them having! They are made from real cheese and no artificial flavors or preservatives. After school when the kids have some down time, Goldfish® crackers are the perfect way for them to regroup after a busy day of learning.
No matter if they are reading, regrouping from a day of school, or playing together, Goldfish crackers always bring a smile to their face! I like being able to be home with them for these moments, too. It’s important to reconnect after a busy day, no matter what it brings. Goldfish® help bring my family back together and get ready to face another one.
