Getting Ready for Back-to-School Boot Camp

Next week is Back-to-School Boot Camp at our house!

It is a tradition we started three years ago, and I am usually a bit more excited than my kids. 😉

I would love for you to join me!!

Homeschoolers AND Public Schoolers are welcome to participate!

This is what I want to accomplish during Boot Camp:

***A Clean House***

  • detail clean: baseboards, windows, etc.
  • organize: kitchen cabinets, freezer, pantry, closets

***New Chore Charts***

  • try out a new system
  • make & print chore charts
  • create specific cleaning charts

***Bedtime Routine***

  • get kids used to going to bed/getting up early again

***Menu Plan***

  • plan healthy meals for school nights
  • collect crockpot recipes
  • find ideas for breakfast that can be frozen

***Homeschool Prep***

  • print planner & fill out
  • figure out daily schedule
  • create assignment sheets
  • sort work by weeks
  • plan fun First Week of School activities

I will go into more detail about our plans next week.

***Would you like to join me? ***

Head back over here next week and leave a link to your Boot Camp plans. It doesn’t have to be a new post – older ones are fine!

Share meal plans, chore charts, planners, first day of school traditions, prayers, encouragement, lunch ideas, cute printables … anything goes as long as it has to do with getting ready for Back-to-School.
