I would like to start by congratulating you on surviving summer! I love summer with the kids home from school, but by September I am ready for them to go back. Who's with me? It seems this year has been a particularly hectic transition period around here, so I truly do want to say "Way to go!". I am sure you are as done as I am with slathering on the sunscreen, kids that never seem to go to bed, and the lack of routine. Now with school back in session, it is time to pack lunches, sign off homework and worry about our kids being out from under our wings…hmmmm, is it too late to go back to summer? Just kidding!

There are definitely pros and cons to both and right now, I am going to focus on the things I love about kids going back to school. One of which is the first day of school pictures that I am seeing all over the place. So cute! I particularly am crushing over the pictures taken with a chalkboard sign stating the child's grade. I just had to create a bit of that for us iScrapbookers! So, it will be our freebie this month, plus our artists have great September kits available to you. Now that should get you right back into the school days groove.
