Are You Ready For School?

It seems like my boys just started summer break! This summer has truely flown by!

Now it is time to start thinking about getting the boys ready to get back to school. Of course there is the school supply shopping, the clothes shopping and the shoe shopping. There is also the hemophilia side of getting ready for school. Meeting with their teachers, the staff in the health office & front office and of course meeting with their counslors to insure their 504 plan is all set for the upcomming school year. This time of year used to cause me great amounts of stress! I have now gone through 22 school year starts with my boys. I think I have it down to a science! LOL!

It took me a few years to find a system that worked best for our family. I prefer to go into the kids school(s) and do my own inservice. For some families they feel more comfortable having their Hemophilia Treatment Center help. I incourage you to find a system you and your family are comfortable with. It does help to make the school year a bit easier with the bleeding disorder part of it.

Enjoy the last month of summer break! Don't forget to prepare your childs school for the upcoming is just one of the "school supplies" needed for a succesful year!
