Sorry for our absence on last month's linkup! I know all you dedicated readers, ok...reader (Hi Mom!) missed us terribly! Summer has been quite a bear around here. We have been traveling a lot and just existing with 3 kids and a puppy has been a long, exhausting challenge. All that said, I do love them all dearly and do my best to cherish our summer time together and making fun memories...amidst the screaming and fighting. Look for the good, right??
Now that I've gotten that out of the way...
Thanks for coming by for our link up! And a special thank you to our other hosts: Allie over at A Gal Named Al, Lisa at Coast to Coast, Tara at Mommy In A Nutshell and Holly over at Pink Lady!!
Back to School Prep time!
Obviously, I am quite excited that it is time to get THIS party started. I haven't actually had to do much back to school prep to share with you. We did do our usual Target run to get what we needed. My 8th grader needed some supplies, but for my Kindergartner and my 4th grader their school supplies their school supplies. Funny way to word that!
Our school prep this year is a bit unconventional. We are preparing to move at some point during the school year. We are building a new home a couple of miles away from our current house in late winter or early spring. So, our focus has been spending time with the kids purging things from their rooms while they aren't also facing homework, projects and activities. Of course, this will be a never-ending process until we actually move, but I am working to get us a good head start so it is a bit overwhelming.
We are in the framing process currently!
If any of you have some suggestions, I am happy to hear them!! The last time we moved was 12 years ago when I only had 1 small kid! Now we have 3, and our niece has moved in all of her stuff. Any organization tips you can throw at me, would be great! I am feeling quite overwhelmed with this process! So, if you need me this Fall, you know what I'll be doing!!
Happy Back to School everyone!
