Not only is it exciting, scary and amazing that she is going to school in less than a month, I have realised I have to get quite a few bits and pieces organised. (Um, now freaking out because I started this post quite a while ago and now there are only 20 days to go.)
I have sorted through her name labels and have ordered some new stick on labels. Pink, of course. I have enough iron on labels for uniforms. (OK, I still haven't used the packet I bought three years ago when she started Kindy!)
Wash uniforms and iron on those labels!
Buy school shoes, socks, bag and drink bottles. Maybe a new lunch box.
Buy hair bands and clips in school colours.
Pay fees and resource costs.
Find a really good non-greasy sunscreen, preferrably roll on or stick variety for her school bag.
Label everything I haven't already labelled. Bag tag.
Try to arrange a catch up with her dear friends from Kindy who have finished up.
Confirm after school care arrangements.
Note down important school dates in calender.
Anything I have forgotten? Do you have any tips for me? For her? I found some great ideas via The Organised Housewife for back to school organisation. She has an excellent checklist here.
