Countdown to a new year

Hello again!  For us in Texas, we have one more week until school starts.  When I was in school, it started in September.  Now, school starts in the middle of August, or for some, late August.  It seems silly to me, why start school before Labor Day?  They go to school for a week or so and then have a 3 day weekend.   Makes no sense to me, but someone decided that it is the best choice.

Since it is only a week away, we are getting all of our “ducks in a row”.  I want more consistency this year, which of course requires planning.  Planning means I have to actually sit down and decide what the best choices are for us.  If you are a Type A person, then you have this already done, or already had a plan in place.  I am more of a Type AB.  Sometimes I have these things planned out and others…the plan is to fly by the seat of my pants!  Ha!

Thankfully I do have all of her school supplies, so that part of the plan is done!  Now to work on meals!  Figuring out meals that are quick, easy, and not full of sugar…not a small feat.  I will be checking out the millions of different recipes online.  It sounds daunting, but I will be able to start with our preferences and trim down the recipes to a manageable list.

It is almost time for school and I am almost ready, lol.

Hope you are ready for school!

Back to school

Well, it is that time again.  They will be back in school in a few weeks, or maybe they already started, but whoo hoo!  It’s time to get them back into the routine: going to sleep at X time (whatever time you have set for them during school days), waking up before 8 (lol), doing homework, etc.  Ah, the fun times of arguing about 5 more minutes of staying awake, or 5 more minutes of sleeping in the morning.

Time to buy school supplies, I stocked up today, love the great sales!  School clothes are different depending on where the child goes to school.  Will they require uniforms, are they allowed to wear anything (minus the short/tiny skirts, etc.), or is it a middle ground?

Oh, and the first day of school, I have always dreaded it.  I end up with homework!!  Now, who was the brilliant person that decided to say, we need the parents to fill out an information form for 6 different classes, plus one for the front office, and don’t forget one for the nurse!  Oh yay…she says while rolling her eyes.

But, before you know it it will be Thanksgiving break and Christmas vacation.  Time flies so fast.

Whatever grade your child will be starting this year, I wish them their best year ever!
