Back to School


School starts in two short weeks, and even if you have nothing done yet, you’re already ahead of the curve by taking this Challenge!

The four of us – moms and bloggers with 11 children between us – are your coaches and have been in your shoes many times! Over the next four weeks we’ll help you tie up the loose ends to make sure you have a successful start to the school year.

Today, we’ll focus on transitioning back into school routines.
