My kids went back to school yesterday for the 2012 school year. This is what I've been doing in the last week to get ready:
Washed, ironed, and labelled all the uniforms.
Sorted out the hair elastics, clips, headbands etc.
Covered and labelled all the books, lunchboxes, and other school supplies.
Named and waterproofed the school schoes.
We have also practiced our morning routine for the last week of the holidays, to help Miss 4 with her transition to school this year.
What do you do to get ready for a new school year?
