It has come that time yet again. August is here and summer is winding down. Are you cheering or crying? To be honest, most families feel a little bit of both emotions. Whether we are ready for the summer to end or not, a new school year is approaching for many.

There are feelings of anticipation and excitement as we get new notebooks and sharpened pencils. However, to feel productive and truly ready for a new year to begin, there are more routines and areas of the home to consider. A new school year means a transition in routines, schedules, and necessities.
