Back to School

We had a busy holiday weekend that kicked off Back To School week with an exhausting start! My third grader and kindergartener are excited to be back at school, meeting new friends and hanging out with old ones. They both got super sweet teachers and are happy going back to our normal routine.
 
 
 Having both boys in school this year, I needed to step it up a notch in the organization department. Two seperate schedules and activities, two seperate grades, one busy momma! Thanks to Pinterest, I snagged a couple ideas to create this awesome space in our home. Each kiddo has his own dry-erase weekly calender, a box for important papers, library books, homework, etc ... and hooks for their backpacks and jackets. And another great thing about this little project? It cost a whopping $22.25 ... thank you Target!
 
 
 How cute is my 5-year-old? He is so thrilled to finally be in a 'real' school like his big brother. 
Hope everyone is having a great week!!
