Wow, parents that homeschooled their kids over the last year and a half deserve a medal (including myself). As many of us are all too familiar, COVID displaced all children out of their normal schedules from brick and mortar schools and into their homes full time, while the world figured out how to combat the widespread virus. Although my husband and I are vaccinated, our children still are not. Therefore, being safe and healthy is a priority as we bring our kids back into the in person school environment.

Challenging times always lead to innovation and optimization though, as for us we needed to bring it back to basics. For us as a family of boys, we needed to be nimble and act fast to make sure our kids were learning as much as possible during the pandemic. We were able to be more nimble with our work schedules and ended up creating a schedule that fit all of our needs quite well.  Needless to say, like many other families, we experienced some growing pains however we were still able to learn from each other and be effective.

Now that kids are all headed back to school again in the late summer / early fall, it is time to make that back to school supplies list.

  • First Day of School Outfit

The first day of school outfit is always my favorite as it sets the tone for the year. When my boys look sharp, they are treated as sharp. Also I admittedly love going shopping for them. Ross, Target, Walmart, you name it, I’ll be there with coupons and bells on.

This preliminary list is a great start to stay prepared before the first day hits.

Are you excited for back to school season?
