The leaves are slowly turning yellow as the cool, crisp air of Fall is sneaks it’s way in.
There’s no mistaking it…
Fall is nearly here.
It’s always been my favourite time of year, but this year, I’m feeling a little less sure about things.
A little less ready for it all.
You see, this year our sweet little boy heads off to Kindergarten.
He’s the friendliest boy I know and I have no doubt he will be best friends with the entire class before the first day is through. And of course, he is over the moon excited to learn every little thing he can. The teacher in me is SO excited and happy for him, knowing he’s been waiting for this day for most of his short little life.
But oh boy, the Mama in me is struggling. Struggling to watch my sweet little baby grow so quickly. Struggling to encourage the growth and independence I very much want for him, while at the same time very much struggling with the knowledge that this same independence means that he will need me less and less as the years pass (rightfully so of course).
Yes my friends, this Fall will be a memorable one for sure!
Knowing our schedules will soon be filling up with all things school and of course all the excitement of those after-school activities, I found myself looking for all the help I could get to organize it all.
So, here’s what I came up with…
5 Ways to Get Organized for Back to School
Start with the perfect planner...
Organize the family with a family command center…
Give the kids some responsibility with a few chores around the house…
Make mornings less hurried with perfectly organized closets…
Back to school will definitely be bitter-sweet this year as we send our sweet little man off to Kindergarten.
There’s no doubt which one of us will have tears in our eyes as we say good-bye that first day of school!
We’re hoping to make the transition to Kindergarten as easy as possible, so tell me friends, how do you keep it all organized when the chaos of back-to-school rolls in?
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day!
