I know it’s totally cliche, but honestly—where has the summer gone? I swear it flies by faster every year! While I’m still trying to hang on to every ounce of summer fun we can squeeze in, I know I need to get myself (and our kids) into “school-mode” soon. That’s why today we wanted do a Back to School Round-up of some of our past posts (such as our Back to School Brainstorm) as well as links to other school-related projects to help you get a smooth start for school!
