Tips For Starting the School Year Off Strong
"We start getting our kids ready for the school year a week or so before it actually begins."
Getting back into a routine after so many lazy days of Summer is not easy, nor is it particularly fun, which is why Beau and his wife start prepping their three kids well before the first day of school. "Clear communication and partnership are key for our family. My wife and I talk at the start of each week about planned activities and who needs to be at what. With three kids in school, we have to divide and conquer!" he said. "We also start getting our kids ready for the school year a week or so before it actually begins. This means normal bedtimes, sitting down for meals on a schedule, and talking to them about upcoming events that they will be participating in that week, such as sports and music practices. This helps our whole family start to be mentally prepared for the school year shift a few days before we actually have to be, but it's really a partnership and involves everyone in the house to make our family run smoothly."
For the new school year, Beau created two fun lunch recipes for his own kids' lunch boxes that you could totally make for your own little ones this school year. Scroll to see the two recipes for .
