  5. Great list! My daughter still has a couple weeks left before starting her senior year. I think I'm the only parent ever that doesn't take first day of school pictures. But when I do actually remember, I can just text her and she'll send me a selfie :)

    It is getting to be that time of year again where all the kids are getting ready to go back to school. Love your list... anything that makes it go easier and less stress is a very good thing.

    This is about a month earlier than I'm used to. Michigan law requires public schools to start after Labor Day. It's kinda freaking me out to know so many are headed back already! But your tips are awesome!

  8. We made it out the door on time this morning with photos and everything! School was a madhouse this morning with everyone arriving, but we had fun with it. Thanks for reminding me to charge my batteries for the camera!

    I am so glad we are home schooling our youngest so I do not have to worry - something about school in pi's sounds great! My oldest is going to be a senior and I am not ready for all the tears that will be coming this year (from me of course!).

  13. School starts a month from today. I'm not ready! Love your checklist, it's very handy for those first mornings back!

    Great list I did my pictures the night before because when we leave in the mornings I have no light and they are already lagging so I dress them up the night before and they put the same clothes back on for the first day

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great checklist! This will make that first day so much easier for parents of kids going back to school!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm definitely going to use this list! We don't need to bring a lunch or anything, but I would be SO UPSET if the camera wasn't charged! My son is starting Preschool this year...and I'm kinda dreading it!

  17. Great checklist! I'm sharing with all my friends who have little ones in school .

  18. I hate when school starts summer is ending. Not ready for it to end yet.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can't believe that school is already starting again, I feel like the summer began a week ago.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, this is good! School starting back doesn't really affect me either way...except for the traffic getting heavier LOL

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great checklist. Hard to accept it is time for school again.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is a great checklist. It gets extremely difficult to remember everything when you have two kids, a job, a side job, and three dogs. Yeesh.

    What a great list! We always get everything ready for the 1st day of School the night before, so this will help me not forget anything.

  26. My kiddo is also on the spectrum so our list would also include PECS.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great printable. Kiddo is with her mom during the week so we don't really have much chaos around here other than filling the backpack with school supplies and buying her a few outfits.

    ReplyDelete
  28. And we have 1 week to do all of this between sleep away camp an our family vacation! I just worry about clothes since my son grew so much and no longer wears kids sizes!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great little list! First day is always chaotic

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is a great list. I am going to print this out for my kids.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This looks like a good list. Fortunately, I'm an empty nester so I don't need to worry about back to school stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You guys are back to school so early. We don't go back until September.

    It seems that all the blogs were just full of "what to do for summer break" posts and now WHAM- it is time for back to school. How times flies!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love how pretty this checklist is. My girls have a checklist that guides them through the day, too. They are really handy!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a great check list. It is hard to get back to the BTS schedule. I am so gald we homeschool :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would have loved a check list like this when my daughter was younger and I helped her get ready for school! Now, she is a senior in high school and doesn't want my help with any of that :D.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Purchased the rest of our school supplies today. Except some how my son took the cleaning wipes out of the chart so they didn't make it home. :(

    ReplyDelete
  40. That is perfect! I need one like this for every night minus the part about the Teacher's name! I know it would help get me organizer every night!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a great checklist! I'm nervous because this is my daughter's first year of preschool, so I definitely need this checklist!

    ReplyDelete
  42. That is such a great list. You forgot to add, fall asleep! lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a great checklist! They always told us what to buy for school back when I was in school :P

    ReplyDelete
  44. The transportation plan always makes me worry. I stress that my kids won't remember their bus number all the way up until I see them get off of it lol. Great checklist!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Can I just say, I am NOT ready! I can't believe it's already that time!


    That doesn't mean I won't be printing out this checklist though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love checking things off the list. I will definitely be using this for Kindergarten!

    ReplyDelete
  47. That's a good checklist. I don't pack until the morning (lunch) but everything else we do the night before. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great list, I'm totally stressing about everything I need to get done before school starts.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Nice list. It's so important to be prepared. I forgot to take my little ones shoes to the first day two years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a great idea. My kids are grown but I definitely remember those hectic first days back.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This is such a great idea, thanks for sharing. We have 20 more days of summer and I don't want school to start. I have enjoyed this Summer so much!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I agree; wonderful idea! I've noticed that one of my step-children will go extremely OCD without a plan for days like that and a checklist would take all of the stress out of it for him. Well, most of the stress :o)

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is a great checklist! I am ready for some routine but will miss my girls while they're in school.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great check list! I'm dreading the back to school routine, but thankfully have about a month before I have to worry.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I can't believe we are already talking back to school. Boy does time go

    ReplyDelete
  56. That is a good checklist to have. I know when I was a kid we would always forget SOMETHING on the first day of school, it became a tradition lol.

    ReplyDelete
  57. That is one super cute printable! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm counting down the hours! I need to work in peace and quiet for a bit please. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the idea of a "night before" checklist! It will help get everything organized ahead of time!

    What a brilliant idea! I especially think having the camera ready is a good one! I am always unprepared with that!

    ReplyDelete
