This year I have three kids in three different schools. Insanity is one way you can use to describe my life right now. However, the key to making sure school starts smoothly is getting a schedule in place immediately. With two jobs, three kids who are all in different activities and schools, staying on schedule is key to not making me go insane during the school year.
This year, my family and I decided to go on a little Staycation together to talk about starting school off on the right foot. We decided to head to the White Mountains and do a bit of hiking, swimming, and cave climbing. We started off each morning with a nice breakfast and a cold glass of DairyPure.
DairyPure: Pure Milk
If you have not heard about DairyPure pure milk, you are truly missing out. DairyPure is a milk line that my kids have been drinking since they have been little kids. DairyPure is a huge milk brand in the New England area and I found it readily at our local Stop and Shop dairy case section as well as in NH, when we went on our staycation. It is available in whole, 2 percent reduced fat, 1 percent reduced fat and skim/fat free milk. Being the only milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise, DairyPure milk contains no artificial growth hormones, is tested for antibiotics, quality tested to ensure purity, and only comes from cows with a healthy diet.
Each morning after finishing our breakfast with some great milk, we took our hike and then talked about how we would manage our schedules through the year. We made a big list of when each of the activities were and how we would plan to get to each one. With our master list, we can never forget where we were supposed to be, at any time of the day.
Another key to getting a good schedule is making sure the kids get a good night sleep. We all decided as a family that all the kids would be in bed at 830 and would be allowed to read for 30 minutes before lights out. In order to adhere to a good schedule, sleep is a big necessity, especially for the younger kids.
We had a great time in New Hampshire and got a lot accomplished with talking about our schedules. I now feel comfortable starting the school year in a much organized fashion. I hope the school year goes well for all of you!
And be sure to give those kids a good breakfast with some great DairyPure milk. You can find the full line of products and learn more, by clicking here: DairyPure. Happy School Year!
