Believe it or not it is time to start getting in the mindset of going back-to-school. I know, crazy; it's only been a month or just over a month and it's time to think about the routine once again. There are a lot of things you can do now that will start your school year off organized, calm, and hopefully, easy to maintain. By setting up a system of keeping track of schedules, activities, chores, and academics you'll be able to feel better about the upcoming school year, and keep you on track.
