BACK TO SCHOOL
It’s time to face facts: the carefree days of summer are coming to an end, and it’s time to start thinking about the kids going back to school. Here are some tips to help ensure the transition in your home is a smooth one:
· Set up a family calendar. Coordinating each member’s individual schedules will help lessen the inevitably rocky transition back to a structured day.
· Go through closets and drawers. Getting these spaces organized before tackling back-to-school shopping will help determine which items are high priority and which can be delayed until the weather gets cooler.
· If you don’t have a mudroom, create a dedicated space (or personalized nook/cubby) near the door for each child’s school items. This will encourage kids to keep backpacks, outerwear and shoes organized to minimize that last-minute morning scramble.
And – most importantly – don’t forget to try to savor every last drop of these leisurely, long days and evenings of summer!
