Hopefully, you had a fantastic summer. But any day now, your kids will be heading back to school. Whether it’s a child’s first day of preschool, middle school, high school, or college, it can be a challenging time for everyone. Fortunately, the folks at Follett have got tons of great resources to guide you and your kids every step of the way.
In my family, we’ve always had special first-day-of-school rituals. When my sisters and I were young, my parents always served us a breakfast that was heavy on the honey. The idea was that we should always remember that learning is sweet. When I had my own kids, I was planning to carry on the tradition, but my oldest didn’t like honey, so I came up with a new tradition: A-B-C pancakes covered in maple syrup (the learning-is-sweet message remains the same). None of us can imagine a first day of school without those cherished alphabet pancakes.
