My goodness my kids head back to school tomorrow.. and all though there will be tears of sadness and joy (winks) I am pretty darn ready! as of this morning.. all my kids have been rough housing, fighting, and making messes.

Anyway, by the end of the summer I am ready to get back on a routine and to be organized while doing it. Today on COM I am sharing everything you need to know to have a successful back to school year.
