New year a new opportunity

"I bet deep down you still wish your mom would take you clothes shopping every August for the new school year."

Bridget Willard

As summer starts to wind down (not the temperatures, just the fun) I found myself thinking back to my first days back to school. I asked my daughters if they were ready to get back in to the groove and back in school. Of course the answer was "no"… but then we started talking about all of the possibilities that layout in front of them in the coming year. My oldest will graduate from the 8th grade, last year of middle school and according to her the year her class "rules the school". One more chance to try to win the speech contest, get a leading part in the school play, field trips, basketball the list started getting bigger and bigger. After awhile I think both girls were ready to get after this last year!

I remembered the excitement of a fresh start with new notebooks, clothes and renewed energy. So I went out and did a little research to see what others are doing to get ready for the new school year and found the 101 THINGS YOU CAN DO THE FIRST THREE WEEKS OF CLASS.

Take a look and add to the list!
