Hello and welcome back to my back – to – school series re-blog. As I mentioned last time, I wrote these posts on back – to – school this time last year and thought that now would be a good time to revisit them. Today’s post will include Back to School Basics: Let’s Go Shopping (I think you’ll be surprised!) and Back to School Basics: Striking the Right Balance. I know that I previously said that the last post would be about sending your little munchkin off to Kindergarten, however, I misspoke. That post didn’t come until much later. What can I say? This is what happens when you do your blogging late at night after everyone is asleep and your brain has turned to mush. Forgive me. Actually, a post on finding balance is probably more appropriate coming from a woman who has her kids in absolutely everything. I hope that these posts actually help you get ready for the return to the classrooms. Summer is slipping away too soon.
