I can hardly believe that our summer is coming to a close for our family. I have to say, so far…it really has been the best summer ever. It’s not because we have done tons of vacations or been running nonstop, but it has just been being together and finally have kids at the age where outings have become as much of a treat for me as it is for them. We have loved every moment of our summer and I am going to really miss the lazy days that we have been enjoying these last few months.
As another school year is fast approaching in our house it has been a flurry of activity- uniform shopping, clothes shopping, shoe shopping, backpack shopping, school supplies shopping, 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!
