Are you ready?

Kristi Corley With three children going into 7th, 6th and 4th grade, you might think I have the back-to-school thing figured out! However, I’m actually a bit nervous about the upcoming school year.

For the past eight years, my kids have gone to a very small, private school. This year they will be going to rather large public schools (by choice). They are just as worried about all the unknowns as I am, but one thing we do know is that we will have many opportunities to grow during this change.

In this issue, our aim is to help you prepare for whatever stage you may be in for “back to school.” We have some cute ways to pack your child’s lunchbox (p. 10), great tips for starting a college fund (p. 15), an informative school choices article that provides a look into public, private and homeschooling options (p. 16), and helpful tips to get your child ready for kindergarten (p. 19). We hope these articles help you feel a little more prepared for the school year!

Plus, we’ve got some great giveaways in this issue too! Winning them is as EASY as 1-2-3!

Have you had any articles on car seat safety tips?

We haven’t, but it’s been one of those “we should talk about that” topics! Thanks for the question!

Awesome! I keep seeing friends’ pictures of their kids with loose straps or low clips and I would love to be able to pass an article along generally to raise awareness of what the safest ways to buckle are. Call me conflict avoidant! lol
