Back To School

The Back-To-School season is such a busy time in our house, as I am sure it is in yours.  August marks back-to-school time for us.  It is the month marching band camp starts, my boys pack up and get back to college, and I get back in the classroom to get ready for the coming preschool year.  Time goes so fast and never as fast as the last month of summer!  


By mid August we pack up the college boys and get them back to school.  This part is never easy.  It doesn't matter how many times we drop off a child at school, its always a bit of a sad goodbye.  Maybe not for them but always for me.  I love having everyone one home for the summer.


We have been involved with our high school's marching band for more then a decade. Each of my kids have been a member at one time or another, drums, tuba, baritone and saxophone.   We have a very talented hard working honor band that begins practicing their halftime show the first week of August.  The days are long and hot and we go through buckets of sunscreen and gallons of water.  We donate lots of snacks and can't wait for that first halftime show!




Once the gang is where they need to be its usually time for me  to get back in the classroom and get it all ready for my new set of preschoolers.  This year was particularly challenging as our school had some upgrades done and although I am thrilled with the results, major clean-up was in store.  The first staff meeting is always fun, seeing everyone and getting our students lists.  Once we sorted through the piles of supplies in our classroom, and arranged all of our centers it was time to get the bulletin boards up.  I love doing the bulletin boards, I know its a silly thing but decorating the bulletin boards helps me get in the school mind set.  If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen these beauties!

Our art center board is ready for all those preschool masterpieces.

The preschool safari board greats the little ones as they enter the classroom everyday.

These last few weeks have been busy and time may go by way too fast for my liking but I love the routine that fall brings to our lives.  Life seems more organized and we all know how happy that makes me.  Welcome Fall and welcome new beginnings and the adventures that a new school year brings!

    1. Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting and following! My students love the bulletin boards and surprisingly do not like me to change them during the year. I guess they become attached to the characters. I hope you come visit again soon!

  7. Very cute boards! We started school way too early--August 10 this year! I have two already done with school, one in college, one in middle school, and a home-schooled fifth grader. I prefer the lack of routine that prevails in the summer, but I love fall for other reasons!

    1. Hi Leslie, Wow August 10th is crazy early to start school! They must not get very much of a summer break. I think kids need time off just to be kids and be silly. You have a bunch of kids too, I have 4 in 4 different schools this year. Hard to keep it all straight. Thank you for visiting I hope you had a chance to subscribe so we can keep in touch.

  9. The bulletin boards are adorable! It's incredible that all your kiddos are into band. I was in marching band for four years and those were the best and most memorable times of high school for me!
