    I make lunch the night before , keep it in the fridge, add the ice bricks when we leave and even at pick up it's still cold!

    Love these lunch ideas!!! Definitely will be referring back to this. My only concern is that DS will still be hungry, he is a very energetic boy and will easily smash two sandwiches for lunch. I like the idea of doing practice runs over the Xmas break!

    I was so stressed for months that we wouldn't get in! We were even rushing our property purchase so we would be in the catchment early enough to enrol, and they didn't have any info on their website about when enrolment would open. So stressful! Glad we got a time slot for the interview - this morning!!

    Sorry to intrude .. just some friendly advice from an old mum who has been through this ... school shoes... buy early enough so that they can wear them in before school starts ... nothing worse than new shoes and blisters ... my 2 always wore their school shoes for 20 mins each day just around the house to get their feet used to them. Hope this little tip helps

    Not sure but I'd get the shoes 1-2 weeks before school starts.

    Hello my third born is starting school next year. His pretty lucky as his biggest brother will be in year 6 so will be his buddy. His little brother will miss him so badly though as they currently go to preschool together and do everything together.
    He has orientation starting the end of this month for 3 weeks which is good as he got a little confused as my second child has asd and is in a support unit classroom fenced off and he thought he was going to go into his brothers class when he started school.

    @Ahalfdozen your lunch boxes look awesome!
    They're over $10 for the box and cooler bag. I ah e been assured but other plantbox converts that they are absolutely worth the money and last forever.
    @Ahalfdozen they look really good might have to look in the supermarket too. Your lunch boxes look so organised al packed up and laid out.
    @Elijahsmum thanks for sharing your super awesome with food. Your photos might have convinced me.

    Apologies if this has been said.

    If your buying school uniforms from retail stores please don't leave it until the last minute as most likely the sizes you want will
    Be gone and if you see trackie pants and jumpers get them aswell because when it is cold you'll find it hard to get the colours you want. I work in retail when not on mat leave and so many parents leave it until the last minute. Same goes for sports day colour clothes.

    Back to school catalogues come out the 2nd wk after Xmas so get in early
