Yes, Summer is going to come to and end. Don’t shoot the messenger!
We love our summer days, but there’s something about fall that makes us feel like we’re in for a new start. It’s like the “New Year” for us.
We push ourselves all summer, entertaining, travelling and living the good life. Back to school hits and all of a sudden we get that tight feeling in our chests. Moms and Dads get overwhlemed at the thought of pulling their schedules together and making everyone happy.
Then you glance back over your shoulder at your home and realize that the summer blew through it like a tornado. Putting systems in place during September does help in many areas. Your kids start school back knowing where everything is, what is expected of them when they go to “Drop” their stuff in the hallway.
Remember to try small areas of change first. It might actually help if you get a few “guidelines” in place now before all the rush in September. Give the backpacks, lunchpails and notes from school a HOME. You know the first week back you’ll be flooded with slips and requests from school so make sure nothing gets lost in the chaos by having a home for all those incoming papers before school starts.
A few well prepared meals ahead of time will help with the first week back as well.
There’s nothing like getting back into the “runnning” and knowing that the family will have a healthy meal waiting for them atleast once or twice that first week back.
We can help with organizing your September and we also know a thing or two about meal preparation!
