It’s almost back to school time! My kids are going back to school in less than a month. I can’t believe how fast the summer has gone by. We’ve gone on three different road trips and had a blast at the local water park. But, now it’s time to get back into the groove.
My youngest is going to a brand new school for 1st grade. She’s a little scared, but mostly excited. This past weekend we went shopping at OshKosh B’gosh for new back to school clothes, and now she can’t wait for school to start.
Here are a few tips that I’ve found make it easy to ease into the school year.
1. Begin moving back bedtime 1-2 weeks before school starts.
I have night owls for children, and since I work from home, we tend to have a very late, late bedtime in the summer. About 2 weeks before school starts, we start moving bedtime back by an hour every few days. The key to making this a success for us is to get the kids up and keep them busy, so nobody takes a nap.
2. Stock up on supplies.
When school supplies go on sale, I stock up for more than just school. They are cheapest now than any other time of the year, and it’s a great time to buy extra to have at home for our own use and when school supplies run low in the spring. Plus you can restock or create your “command center” with pens, markers, folders, and more to keep all those important school papers.
3. Start shopping early!
I used to wait until the last minute when it came to back to school shopping, but not anymore. We start shopping in July. This way we get the best pick of brand new school clothes and freshly stocked supplies.
One thing I love about OshKosh B’gosh clothing is that the colors each season just mix and match so well together.
When she found these hot pink glitter leggings at OshKosh, she squealed with delight. We went around the store finding coordinating tops and accessories to go with them. She even got coordinating socks.
We have three different looks with these leggings. I love that I can buy a few pieces that mix and match to make several great outfits.
And…we got a bonus outfit. Her favorite animals are kitties. She has so many kitty stuffed animals, so when we found these kitty leggings next to the hot pink ones, she had to get them. Plus, this outfit also fits into the mix and match with all the other pieces we picked up! (And, I love the positive message “Girls Are Strong”)
