Back to School Essentials

Thinking back to the days that I went to school and as a parent sending my own child to the classroom, there are things that were on my personal list that didn’t involve clothes to look my/his best, taking notes or doing homework. These are some of my Back to School Essentials for both kids, teens and parents too!

I find it much easier to dress my younger boys than I do Thomas (age 10). Thomas is very picky when it comes to the clothes he wears, both in style and brand.

August. Although we still have half of summer left, it also means that half of summer is behind us and the Back to School rush is only a few weeks away. For me, Back to School is pretty much the BEST time of the year (second only to Christmas), but the boys don’t tend to be nearly as excited for September as I am.
