Have a 4th grader? Your family gets free admission to National Parks. Here’s how!


Thanks to the Every Kid in a Park initiative, all 4th graders and their families will be invited to visit our country’s outdoor treasures and historic sites anytime they like during the 2015-2016 school year… free of charge! This includes all National Parks, Federal Land and Waters.

Part of the White House’s “Every Kid in the Park” initiative, this program is made possible by the National Park Service and National Park Foundation. The objective is to introduce kids to outdoor recreation. Students just need to sign up online and they will then get a voucher that grants entrance to the student and a carload of passengers to federal recreation areas for one year.

Beginning September 1st you will have access to your own Every Kid in a Park pass. This pass will give you free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more! The pass will be good for the 2015-2016 school year until August 31, 2016.

For more information or to sign up, click here. Make sure to pick up sleeping bags, hammocks and backpacks for your little one’s outdoor adventure!

Back to School – Back to Schedules


It’s Back to School time which means it’s back to schedules, too. The summer break hangover is all too real in our household. I think it’s easier to convince my children to get a shot from the doctor than it is to get them out of bed and off to school. We’re constantly rushing through the house and out the door. Thankfully I have learned a few things through the years, and it doesn’t hurt that I work with a bunch of fantastic mamas who can offer advice, too. Here are some of the ways we get our kiddos back into the groove of school.

Let’s start with this: if the kiddos aren’t excited about going back to school, it’s going to be much tougher to get them back into a routine. We try to make the experience as exciting and fun as possible for our kiddos. One thing we do is buy new backpacks for the kids every year. It seems small, but my kids absolutely love to pick out a new backpack to rock on the first day of school.

And we always let them pick out a new outfit to wear on the first day of school. One of our children has uniforms so we let her pick out new shoes and accessories for her first day back. It’s so funny to me that at the mention of new clothes, their attitudes go from nope to yep in an instant.

We start getting the kids back into the bedtime routine about 2 weeks before school starts. We gradually decrease their bedtime to make it a little easier on them. It’s not going to be real fun transition if you let them stay up until 11 p.m. one night and then the next night bedtime is at 9 p.m.Once school has started, we focus on the routine heavily the first couple of weeks with job posters and lists so we can get everything down and in the habit. I have a poster for chores and the house routine and then a chart for what they need for school to keep it all straight.

We do a fun themed dinner the night before. It’s when I give the kids their new backpacks, school supplies and then we have a fun dinner. We have a family theme for the year. This year we are keeping it simple and doing the theme from Cinderella, “Have Courage & Be Kind.” We talk about what that means and what it looks like at school, and ways that they can live our “theme” through the school year. It makes the night before something fun that they look forward to, and gives them a reminder through the year for how to act and be.

I also take a photo of them with their favorite things on a sign and then do the same on the last day so we can see how they’ve grown and changed throughout the year.

Be just as prepared as you’ve prepared your children. I always make sure their clothes are laid out and easily accessible, their backpacks are packed and at the door the night before, and I have their lunch ready to go (as much as I can anyway). We love to prep as much food as possible in advance. For ideas on easy lunches & prepping tips, see this post.

We do a lot of talking the first week or so. I want to know what their challenges are, what they love, how they feel about everything that’s going on and we adapt from there.

If you have any other tips on how to get the kiddos excited, please share them below. We’d love to hear from you! Shop our Back to School collection here >>>
