If your kids aren't already back to school, this long weekend signals the unofficial end to the season and the beginning of homework, routines and endless activities. (Hopefully, it also includes a little extra time for your self-care mama.) And while it's a little bittersweet saying goodbye to summer, it is exciting to watch our kids learn new things + continue to grow every day. Here's to September!
