That's what we've got left of summer. Hard to believe, isn't it? Our high school junior starts school on August 14 and the 8th grader goes on the 17th.
I started the purchasing of school supplies 2 weeks ago with volleyball shoes for camp and the upcoming season. Made a couple of other purchases last night. Enrollment information arrived in the mail a few weeks ago. Emails have arrived with more enrollment materials, important dates and forms. Sports physical completed. Eye appointment completed. Dental appointments done.
This is my least favorite time of summer. I begin to feel pressured about not having completed all of the activities we had planned and the list of things to do before that first day of class seems to get longer instead of shorter.
In an effort to alleviate that pressure, my goal is to create a master of list of everything I need to do before classes start and break it down into manageable chunks of things I can do each week. We have a lot of fun activities on our calendar between now and August 7th and I want to be able to relax and enjoy them as much as possible.
How do you handle that back-to-school list of things to do?
