    Thank you so much for sharing this you are too kind!

My favorite part of going back to class again is getting everything organized & breaking in my new Ban.do planner! I have already hit up those Target back to school sales so I am almost ready to go.

  178. I am most excited about having another year with both my children at home with me before the oldest begins school. I left my career behind in DC to move to Alabama and stay home a few years with my son and daughter. The transition was bigger than I imagined but every day we grow, not just the babies but our entire family unit.

Anyway, I found out last week that my baby (who will be in kindergarten) will be starting a few days before I need to report back! I am SO excited that I will be able to take him.

  185. For my daughter entering Pre-K this year, she is excited to learn to read! She is such a bookworm and gets frustrated that she can’t yet read by herself. I’m nervous for September because I’m going back to school for a masters degree and a career change. I hope I’m not the oldest in my cohort and can keep up with the coursework and family life. I always appreciate your family/work/life balance posts as I can totally relate and use any tips you offer!

We eat breakfast, play games, toss a football etc.) I recently purchased from Target their big map to color. Every day when the little tikes come over, I am going to have each color one state and tell me a fact about it or we will google a fact.

I guess I’m also a tremendously nervous for them too. New schools, new kids, new routines! My 16 year old will be a junior and I’m excited for his future to begin to unfold. All three have very important years and I know they’ll do well and I’m so excited to see what they will tackle, achieve and experience.

The File Box, File Folders, Patches, Stencil Book, Paper Pad, Pencils, Markers, and the Watercolor Set are perfect for organization and replenishing the much needed and used art supplies. That adorable Oh Joy First Aid Kit is perfect to have on hand for those owies and boo-boos that might come along. The pretty bag makes the experience a calmer one and easy to find and can also double as a doctor bag when roll playing doctor or nurse, too!

  276. I am excited for the future. As a new set of students come through my door (roughly 125+) I realize I am more than a teacher – I am a mentor, an advisor, a spring board to engage them in the life long learning process.

  281. My daughter loves school thanks to all of the wonderful friends, families, and staff who make it special, so I’m definitely looking forward to that.

  311. My oldest will be starting preschool. I have to admit I am nervous, excited, and a bit sad to be entering this phase. Excited for him to have an entirely new experience, make new friends, grow his wings a little. and yet a little sad to let him learn to fly away, if only for three hours each day.

  314. Excited for back-to-school shopping – adorable supplies and clothing! It’s hard to say who loves it more-me or the kiddo! I can’t believe how time is flying! Third graders are considered part of the “older group” at this school and the kiddo can’t wait for that–or to see school friends!

  323. It will technically be my official out-of-school this August! I will finally finish my MBA and have time to take my 18m old daughter travelling before she starts school next year.

  324. Looking forward to the fall and the beginning of a great school year for my children!

  325. My soon-to-be First Grader daughter Alice is excited to go back to school because she’s eager to ride Junie B. Jones’s yellow stinky bus!

  326. My daughter is going to Kindergarten and I’m so excited to see what subjects she really enjoys and for her to make lots of new friends!

  327. I’m excited to start a new school year! As a middle school teacher, I always look forward to meeting my new “batch” of kids and beginning a new relationship with them! It’s always rewarding to look back and see how much they will have grown in June. =)

  328. I’m the most excited that my daughter will be starting junior kindergarten. She is a spirited one that needs to be her social butterfly self.

  329. Our two girls are in non-transition years. One in 5th and the other in 7th. This is a year of both already knowing (and loving) their schools. This makes the start of school a bit easier!

  330. I am most excited about my daughter starting high school and my 2 grandsons going into first and second grade. My daughter will have a full schedule but she hopes to be a teacher herself, and is currently in Central America helping out other high school students with their English classes and visiting family-which is great practice for her. My grandsons are looking forward to seeing friends again and making new ones, and I am looking forward to getting their awesome drawings for my fridge!

  331. I’m most excited for my son to start kindergarten and join his big sister at school!

  332. I am excited for the explosion of knowledge as my 4yo enters her 2nd year of preschool – she is so INTO learning!

  333. This will be my sons first year of preschool and I’m so excited to see his little mind expand and to have him make some new friends!

  334. I’m excited that it’s my son’s first year of high school. He’s going to s marine science school and he’ll get to raise his own clownfish!!!

  335. September is going to be an exciting time in my house for everyone. My oldest is going into first grade, and I am looking forward to watching him blossom more with his new adventure. My baby is going into his last year of pre-school, which makes me weepy that my baby is growing so fast. My husband and I are switching roles, I am going back to work full time designing baby clothes and he will be Mr. Mom.
