It’s that time again…our kids are back in school! New teachers, new supplies, new friends, new clothes and maybe even a new school.  Every year parents spend weeks planning schedules, buying supplies and preparing their kids for another successful year of school.  Kids on the other hand may be feeling a little sad to see summer come to end, or even a little nervous about their new school year.  Luckily, these new school year jitters won’t last long.

Take if from these kids, despite the moans of doing homework and the groans of having to wake up early…they really do love school.
