The twins are in Kindergarten at school this year, so we are really working extra hard on our letter names, phonetic sounds, and written letter formations here at home too. We try to really break things up by alternating the learning from old school flash cards, writing on paper, and playing board games to utilizing some of the many great apps available for iPads and Tablets. A huge find in regards to practicing our writing and for general drawing and coloring has been our mini stylus by Maglus.

The folks at Staples recently contacted me about how they love helping everyone prepare for and celebrate all their back to school firsts. This is a very good thing because Back to School time has arrived in our household and there are plenty of "firsts" to be celebrated.

The countdown to the start of school is under a week from now in our household which means the return of the after school snack attack. Like many moms, this means I need to pull out my "A" game when it comes to healthy but fun snack options and Door to Door Organics here in Chicago is helping me stack the deck.
