The twins are starting school on Monday. It may only be kindergarten, but their school goes up to sixth grade, and they will be eating in a real life cafeteria, and having homework that must be done on my computer, and I just about hyperventilated last night when their teachers said, “the kids will have weekly spelling quizzes throughout the year”. What!?!

It is exciting, overwhelming, and I couldn’t be more happy for them. For us all.

Back to school is one of my favorite events of the year – I love getting organized and ready for a new season. Having a cute planner is an important part of this process. Even if by school I mean… work next Monday! This year, the Ban.do planner won my cutest planner of the year award. It includes the brightest, most fun stickers and a slew of amazing “to-do” lists.

While I fill in our fall calendar with ideas like cleaning my house in roller skates. Here are some other fun back to school ideas:

  1. I’m about to start my freshman year of college in a week! Last week, I helped my friend’s mom out at the PTA store, and it was really interesting seeing all these frazzled parents go up and down the aisles, frantically buying everything they thought their kid would need. Most were middle school parents, and in middle school, you really don’t need much except for a calculator, a pencil case with all the goods, a few notebooks and binders, and you’re set! They just want the best for their kids I guess :) But it’s kind of funny, because high school students never care so much about their school supplies. It was a refreshing experience observing these parents while working the store. Every moment is a milestone! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
