I’ll be honest . . . . I am so NOT ready for my girls to go back to school. I’ve never, ever been ready for my kids to go back to school. We’ve considered homeschooling many times, but our experience with public school has been, for the most part, very positive. We have many friends and family members who homeschool and several whose children have attended private schools. Perhaps it is because I have such positive memories of my own experiences in public school that I want my children to have the good parts of school. But I really love having them home during the summer months, and I always feel a bit of sadness when it is time for them to return at the end of summer.
Of course, one day they all eventually grow up and go on their own way, even after their school days. I think I will finally be ready when the last one walks across the stage for her high school graduation diploma. But I’m not sure. For now, we still have one in high school and one who will be starting her college adventure in the next few weeks. She will be living at home (well, that will save a LOT of $$$!) so we’re in the process of planning lunch menus so that they can both be ready to zip out the door early in the morning with something yummy and nutritious in their school bags.
Here are a few ideas we came across that we are planning to try over the next few days to be ready for the first day of back-to-school!

A note about the new link up format:
You may have noticed that several link party hosts are now using a new version of the link up that looks a little different than before. If this is your first time linking up to the new format, you may be prompted to register your email to create an account. This is the same as before when you entered your email each time you linked up with the old format. You do not have to have a personal inlinkz account or membership to link up, everything is the same as with the previous link up procedure. After your first time linking up you will not need to create an account each time and you will just be able to link up. If you have any questions or need help, feel free to ask!
