It’s always nice to make a good impression with the person that will spend roughly 1,080 hours with your kids over the course of the next 10 months. These gift tags paired with cookies or a gift certificate to Swig or Crumbl make the perfect meet the teacher gift for Back to School night. Or even a good pick me up for teachers anytime in the first month of school. I sent these with my kids to school today which is the start of our second week of school. I’m guessing the teachers are feeling a bit wiped out after last week and the thought of their first full week might feel daunting.… Read the rest
Use this printable to help your kids make some goals for the new school year! The night before school starts back up we like to have a special dinner as a family.

This is something we can remind ourselves of throughout the year, a goal of sorts, to help us all be successful. My husband also gives each of my kids special father’s blessings for the upcoming school year.
