School's In Session! - MSN Homeroom

Wow! Did the summer just fly by or what????
I'll be posting our family's amazing "trip of a lifetime" photo journal from Cabo Mexico later this week! We had a fantastic experience that helped ease us back into reality of back-to-school....

I have already returned to our back-to-school toolkit of tricks and tips to help our family keep on schedule during the school week. This includes pre-setting the kitchen table for self-serve breakfast each morning. We set the table with bowls, glasses, mugs and utensils plus a variety of cold cereals, including Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats. I prepare some fresh fruit toppings in the refrigerator and set the timer on the coffee maker for when we arise in the A.M. It's less stressful and crazed if it's done ahead and our sleepy family gets a healthy breakfast to start the right!

We're already going full speed with school, work, and activities and a new online resource is available to help busy families:

The site is sponsored by Kellogg's Mini-Wheats and offers great online discussions, videos, tips and tools in an interactive and fresh format. I have already scoped out a number of the key topic areas including:
writing, back to school, reading, giving back, attentiveness, learning and memory
via articles, videos, episodes, and community boards

This week's featured article, "Writing as a Process: A Quiz for Young Authors" is informative and relevant. My daughter and I enjoyed learning together as she gears up for Fifth grade and considerable writing assignments for the school year.

Here's hoping each of our children enjoys a busy and successful school year filled with laughter and learning!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats and received a sample to faciliate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate!
