Dress Rehearsal

Summer break is nearly over and honestly, I’m ready to get back into a normal routine.

During the final week before school starts, our family goes through what I like to call the “dress rehearsal.” Normal bedtime resumes. Alarm clocks are set. We get up each morning and go through the process of getting ready as though we’re trying to catch the bus.

The kids hate it. To them, we’re taking away their last week of staying up late and sleeping in.

Maybe practicing for an entire week is excessive, but by the first day of school the morning goes smoothly. If it ain’t broke…

What do you do to get in back-to-school mode?
