Lists for Preparing for Back to School

Once August hits, our thoughts start turning toward preparing for children to go back to school.  This is a busy time of year.  There is a lot of hustle and bustle to get things done before the end of the summer so that your child is ready and willing to learn.  To get the most out of the time left until school starts, lists will help you organize your thoughts and set up a plan of attack.  All it takes is a few minutes of thoughtful planning in order to make the transition back to school a smooth and happy one.
