We really try to start instituting school year bed times a couple of weeks before school starts so our kiddos aren't falling asleep on their desks the first day of school. However! It's easier said than done! It still gets dark late and the kids just want to enjoy the last days of summer to the fullest. I think I have a hard time getting back into the routine as much as they do.

I hear ya! So hard to get my kids to bed on time! We are transitioning from summer to school with a big bang so I am not doing the best when it comes to bedtime. I figured I would let them enjoy one more crazy week of vacation and then get them on track
We also start talking about school, seeing all their friends from school, going through closets and seeing what fits, what doesn't and making a shopping list of whats needed. It helps my kids prepare.
