INSIDE: How to make a 5-minute back-to-school notebook cover. Free “This Is Going To Be An Awesome Year” printable.
The kids are going back to school. Yippee or Boo Hoo, depending on your feelings this time of year. I kinda sorta like having my kids home (all day, every day) for the summer. So, it’s always a little bittersweet for me when that first day of a new school year rolls around.
As we leave behind an awesome summer, it’s now time for the kids to have an equally awesome school year!
They may not listen to mom’s ra ra ra cheer about how great this year will but maybe they will when it’s on a notebook cover!? Cover a school composition notebook with an “awesome” phrase for a happy (school) year.
