It’s time for school! Ready or not, it is time to get back into our school routines — packing lunches, supervising homework, and taxiing our kids to all of their activities. The only thing busier than summer is the school year!
I can’t believe that school has already begun for many of your children! In our neck of the woods, kids don’t hit the classrooms until after Labor Day. So I still have some time to get organized.
This year, Jackson is heading into Grade Two, (or 2nd Grade, as you Americans say,) and I am so excited for him. There is nothing like that thrill of being a grade older and heading into a new year…
I am also excited about the fun giveaways we have in store for you during our 5 Minutes for Mom Back To School Giveaway Event. Whether your kids are already in school or you haven’t even begun to get ready, you can have some fun getting ready here!
Win prizes, find shopping ideas and get in the mood for fall.
From printers to backpacks, we have something for everyone. Our Back To School Giveaway Event begins today, August 14th, and will end on Friday, August 28th. We will announce our winners on Saturday, August 29th.
