Happy Back to School season teachers, students and parents too!
Some of you may have started school by the time this post is published, but no worries because this blog post is geared towards anyone who needs a reset. We begin the school year season with so many emotions as a first timer. We also have mixed emotions as someone transitioning from season to season while getting back to a different yet familiar routine.
Resets are usually needed when we are setting goals, and finding ourselves hit with a little pressure to accomplish things.
One mom goal that I set for myself is having all of the kiddos out of the door 10 minutes earlier than the year before. While the girls have set up a full mod board/book together. I found it to be the best motivator for anyone starting something new because it includes a check in of emotions on a day to day basis, with call to action activities to help get through them. Lastly, it’s organizational tool that anyone can use. I find it to be the best self help hack for anyone, not just the tweens.
As we head back to school in record time; (well at least it feels that way.) Summer 22 has gone by in a breeze, yet we’re still thankful for the ride.
To get ready for back to school this year we kept it simple and I just wanted to share how all parents can do the same.
This year we kept the school supply list accessible on the refrigerator the minute we received it. You can also try leaving it on a bulletin board, or desk file organizer. The key is to Keep it there, but do not run out and get ALL of the things at once … you should first enjoy 30 days of Summer.
Next, slowly cross things off of the list as the school year approaches and then start planning for the bigger items on the list like, back pack, headphones, lunch box, labels, novelty items and mood boosters for an easy transition.
We love our mabel’s labels and have been using the brand for many years to keep us organized all year long.
The most important part of starting a new year of school and being prepared with excitement to learn is inner happiness! Encouraging thoughts of looking forward to a great year for the kiddos is in The transition from Summer activities, time spent with friends and family.
Our transition begins with the first crisp feeling in the Summer night air, along with a fun yard sale, donations and organization in the home. We also complete all Summer homework and add a little extra Summer reading to stay in the flow of growing and learning.
