It’s smart to do a little prep work so the morning of the first day is a breeze.

1. Have your child help pick out a favorite outfit ahead of time and be sure to set it aside — this point might seem obvious but if you’ve got little ones who are excited to wear new school clothes, this step could save a lot of hassle on the first day.

2. Take your kids in for a fresh haircut. Have you heard about the new Online Check-In App from Great Clips? It’s a free app that can save time by helping you locate your nearest salon and add your family to the wait list. For every download of the FREE app, Great Clips has pledged to donate to the Adopt a Classroom cause. Go here to learn more.

3. Be sure to download and print out our free, fill-in photo signs for your kiddos to hold in their pictures.

Teacher Appreciation Door Decorating

Photo 4

This morning I woke up early to go decorate the door for my daughter’s teacher. Our school is one of many that have a tradition where homeroom moms decorate the classroom doors for teacher appreciation week. Since Aimée and I also headed up the SNAP Door Decorating contest, I guess you could say we are becoming door decorating experts. I thought it would be fun to share some of the doors I saw in the hallway at school today (please excuse the phone photos).
