Good morning, friends! Today my daughter heads back to school and my son will be shortly following behind her on Wednesday. I am a sappy momma and tend to sob on both days that the children head to school. I also am the one in sunglasses for the entire day to hide the tired circles and red eyes from all of the crying. They do drive me crazy sometimes when they are here, but I miss them when they are gone.
It has been a flurry of activity- uniform shopping, clothes shopping, shoe shopping, backpack shopping, school supplies shopping, back-to-school nights, ice cream treating, lots of individual dates with each kid, and plenty of talking about the exciting year to come.
I just wanted to point out a few of my favorite resources for moms that might help you as you ease back into your busy school year! These are my favorite resources for organizing and feeding my family during this busy time!
Back-to-School Breakfast Ideas:
Blueberry Pancakes (make and pop them in the freezer for the school week)
Fluffy & Light Pumpkin Pancakes (make and pop them in the freezer for the school week)
Homemade Cinnamon Rolls (a great way to celebrate your week at school on Saturday morning)
Getting Organized for Back-to-School:
One Month of Slow Cooking (perfect for those days filled with after-school activities)
Ideas for Celebrating That First Day of School:

Good luck to each of you that are on this journey again with your kids! I hope you all get off to a successful school year start!
