Back to school can be an exciting time for everyone, but it can also be stressful for parents. Getting your family back into a routine after summer can result in some hectic mornings and evenings. So, we’ve put together five back to school hacks that even the busiest of families can use!
Taking your kids to the pool on a hot day sounds refreshing…until you take a mental inventory of what you need to do before you actually get to the pool. But, a trip to the pool with kids in tow doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
Plan ahead to ensure you and your kids keep your cool at the pool this summer, and follow these simple tips!
Memorial Day marks the start of summer, which means longer days, spending more time with your kids, and counting down the days until school starts.
Next weekend will be full of opportunities to watch parades, eat barbecue or go swimming. But why not take this opportunity to get active outdoors and share a new experience with your kids? Take a hike and explore where you live!

Here are some of my favorite meal planning hacks.
