Back to School


My Back-to-School Task List:

1. Buy two backpacks.
2. Sign up for extended day by July 31st.
3. Buy school and casual shoes for both boys.
4. Clean water bottles.
5. Write cafe' check and add cafe' to calendar each month.
6. Add checking on-line Edline to weekly calendar.
7. Clean out homework supply boxes.
8. Create a place for keeping samples of school work for the year. (Thinking about old cereal boxes???)
9. Go through uniforms and determine needs.
10. Buy new uniforms.
11. Inventory socks and buy as needed.
12. Buy Loki a belt IF needed.
13. Write to the school and find out if the BLACK and BLUE jackets the boys own from last year (when any overcoats were allowed) are acceptable for the Black OR Blue coat new uniform guidelines.
14. Dig out a couple of old lunch boxes to use as Breakfast-in-the Car and Afterschool Snack boxes.
15. Create morning and afternoon routines and start practicing BEFORE school starts.
16. Aug. 1, start modifying sleep and wakeup schedule.

Things I've already done:

1. Created an area for shoes, a reward system (Harry Potter House Cup points ;)), and a place for mislaid toys (so the boys can pick them up and put them away themselves).


2. Created a launch pad for each boy.



3. Created a bath supplies drawer for each boy.




Hmmm.  I am a little overwhelmed.

Etcetera.
