School has already started in some states. Here in Texas, we still have a few weeks left to get ready before our toddler Izaiah heads to preschool and our older kids to grade school. (Thank GOD … I could use a few more weeks of sleeping in!)
Until the first bell rings, I’m doing a mad dash here and there prepping for the upcoming school year. With 3 kids going back to school, there is shopping, organizing, and that routine thing that we have to get back into. #BOO
I’ve rounded up a few favorite back to school finds. Hopefully you will find these as useful and inspirational that I have!
