Back-To-School

It’s back-to-school for most of the kiddos in our area so I thought it would be good idea to let y’all know what we do for back-to-school. We actually school year round with each school year starting the first Monday of January. I have made some traditions because when I went to school I would get myself up, get myself breakfast and then head off to school. Even though I loved school getting myself ready and sending myself off wasn’t fun or exciting.

We start off the first day of school with a big breakfast. I make a fritata, which is basically an open-faced omelet, adding in all of our daughter’s favorites. Green onions, spinach, tomatoes, bacon, cheese, cheese and some more cheese. Along with a big cup of chocolate milk. While she is still eating I set up all the items we’ll be using that day during school. For our curriculum we use Timberdoodle Co.


Once breackfast and teeth brushing are done our daughter gets to choose what she would like to wear that day. PJs or regular clothes are fine with me. Then we go to our school table and she chooses what she thinks will be the coolest thing for the day and I take a picture of her with it. I also take a video of her and ask her what she thinks of school. 


After completing school, we paint and then get an ice pop. Our daughter loves painting and after her art is dry I hang them around the house. I love seeing the sense of pride on her face when I hang up all her paintings. I want her to know that we are proud of her and encourage her artistic creativity. The painting below is one that recently got hung up. It was from our homeschool group Shark WeeK Event. 


So, that’s what we do for back-to-school. Below you’ll find what others do for traditions, their tips or plans for the semester/year. I’d love to hear what y’all do for the back-to-school season or any questions you might have; just hit up the comment section below.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…

Keeping Organized

Between homeschool, pet care, house cleaning and cooking it’s important to stay organized. How do I organize my homeschool curriculum? Well the main bulk is in a big container, the items I use multiple times a week I have in a utility tote, books I actually store in old Pull-Up boxes and for art supplies, flash cards and little games I keep them in a rolling container.



As for our pets and house cleaning, I have an amazing planner. What I love about this planner is that I was able to customize everything. The covers, layout and even add list like birthdays were all customized to my liking. The birthday list is awesome because the dates are already printed on that day and even lets me know how old people are. I write in my cleaning schedule, which is pretty simple. I clean 1 room a day, dishes everyday and laundry 4 times a week. I write in what days my pets get their baths or need something health wise. 

Cooking is probably the part I hate most. Having to figure out what we’ll eat 3 ti…
