One of the things I use most often in my advocacy is the United States Department of education’s policy documents.

Steal My Back To School Shopping List

Water Bottles and Flash cards and Granola Bars! Oh My!!! My kids went Back to School this week, which means it’s go time! You know I’m a planner, and if there’s one thing I love, it’s a fresh beginning. This time of year energizes me, forcing me to get organized and allowing the structure to get back on track with things like meal prepping. As I perused Amazon for everything we needed to start the year off right, I thought that I should share our list!
