Can you believe Summer is almost over? Although Summer has never been my favorite season I do enjoy having my son home and the vacations we take. We only have a few weeks left of vacation before we’re back to our normal school routines. My son is going into the fourth grade this year..where has the time gone? I remember his first day of preschool like it was yesterday and now I’m looking into preschools for my daughter. I really wish they could stay little forever!
Now that stores are filling their shelves with back-to-school supplies my kids are excited to start shopping. I have already purchased a few of their supplies but there’s still so much left to buy. I started making a list this morning of some school essentials using the Back-To-School e-guide that was published today.
The back-to-school guide is the perfect #momsguide to help busy moms like me plan for the upcoming school year. Check out what some expert bloggers had to say about the products featured in the Back-To-School e-guide.
Here is my shopping list so far:
-we already purchased several items but still need paper, pencil boxes, and folders.
-Oh the priciest of them all! I always try to find the best deals so I like to look online and in stores for their clothing. A few weeks ago I found out about CookiesKids.com, but there’s also searsStyle for moms like me who need a little help in the fashion department.
backpacks, lunch bags, and food containers
-While looking at backpacks yesterday my son requested a Marvel Characters backpack again this year. I don’t know at what grade kids stop using characters backpacks but it made me happy that he’s still young enough for them. I’m telling you, I’m one of those moms who doesn’t want their kids to ever grow up!
-Snacks are a big deal throughout the school year. I normally have a good plan where I set out the snacks for their lunch on Sundays. This way I can easily pack them in their lunch bags in the mornings. Our favorites are bags of carrots, apple slices, crackers, and mini water bottles. Then I also have to worry about after school snacks. My son is pretty hungry by the time he gets home so I try to have quick and easy snacks to keep him full until dinner time. Tyson chicken nuggets are his absolute favorite! It’s nice that he’s also at an age where he can help himself to a snack if I’m occupied with the younger two. Snacks like Tyson chicken nuggets are some of my must-have during times like these!
