State and local protocols to begin the 2020-21 school year with distance learning is a reality for most, if not all, families of school-aged children. This necessary method of virtual instruction may be particularly difficult for students with special...
When I hear the phrase “back to school”, I think of crowded aisles filled to the brim with shiny new supplies--the endless options of crayons, colored pencils, regular pencils, and pens that will never fit inside those sequin-swathed pencil...
Ready or not, the start of the 2020-2021 school year approaches quickly, and for many of us that means a return to distance learning. The COVID-19 pandemic brought us a school year none of us expected, and understandably our...
Last year, I survived my youngest child's very first parent/teacher conference, and I am grateful that my son's teacher handled me just like her classroom: truthfully, firmly, and kindly. We talked for a few moments about my son's interests,...
The month of August in Texas brings two things, blazing heat and the first day of the school year. My daughter seemingly forgot how to eat lunch at school last year. She dutifully threw out nearly every day...
It's almost here. The day I've been dreading for the past eight years is almost here. My baby is about to start kindergarten, and I'm going to be an empty nester. OK, the nest won't be completely empty, but...

It’s that time of year again. School supplies line the seasonal aisles of grocery stores. Red apples, school buses, and pencil clip art adorn the penny saver flyers, and August announced its arrival before we even realized July had...
Ah, back to school. For many, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Backpacks are purchased; summer reading books are (almost?) complete; the aisles of every store in town are bursting with pencils, erasers, and stickers; and everyone...
August has many meanings for us moms here in South Texas. The back-to-school emails are slowly starting to roll in, and the worst of the heat really hasn’t hit us yet. Target seems to think that removing all evidence...
