- Brooke Burke-Charvet:
Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet and husband David Charvet are parents to four kids: Neriah, 12, Sierra, 10, Rain, 5, and Shaya, 4. And as the mom-of-four says, “This year will be my most challenging school year yet.” Read some of her best back to school tips from her blog ModernMom.
Back to school starts now in my house even though all four of my kids are returning at different times. This year will be my most challenging school year yet. Four kids in three different schools with four different drop-off and pick-up times.
Thankfully my youngest, Shaya, will still enjoy our beloved homeschool for two days a week. We decided to put him in a “regular” program three days a week so he’ll be with more kids as his sister is moving up to kindergarten.
I hate online paperwork and envy the parents with only one child. I literally have folders, separate file cabinets for each kid, their rosters, forms, sports and miscellaneous important documents. It’s a LOT to organize. Does anyone else feel that there are way too many orientations, meet-and-greets, pot lucks and social activities this month? Multiply it by four and you can imagine my schedule. Plus during BTS nights, I am divided in numerous classrooms and for SURE missing something.
I spent the day labeling backpacks, lunch boxes, water bottles and clothes.
Here are some of my BTS MUST-HAVES. My kids love them all and it truly helps to have some go-to items to help you keep it together.

- Alison Sweeney:
Days of our Lives star Alison Sweeney is mom to son Ben, 7, and daughter Megan, 3. The Biggest Loser host is also a blogger and shared some of her best back to school fashion tips for the “stylin’ mom” on AlisonSweeney.com.
School is starting again, and that means meeting lots of new people, for your kids and you. I love attending back-to-school nights and open houses and other evening events at Ben’s school and Megan’s preschool because it’s a chance to learn more about their teachers and interact with their classmates’ parents.
Try my simple hair-do how-to
When I get ready for something like that, I keep my outfit simple and comfortable, but I definitely get more dressed up than I would for school pickup or running around at the playground. What do you think of this feminine (and still functional) look?

Summer seemed to fly by and now it’s already time to start planning for back-to-school! I like to keep my kids healthy and energized throughout the school day by packing them nutritious, fun snacks in their lunchbox. These ideas are all gluten-free, so they’re perfect if you want yummy snacks for your G-free little ones or if you just want your kids to have some healthy food options throughout the day.
Rice cakes are a G-free go-to, but kids can find them a little plain. Add some apple butter for a delicious way to sweeten them up in a healthy way. Orgran Gluten Free Toasted Rice Crispibreads from GlutenFreely.com are a good option!

Back to school is an exciting time. There’s lots of shopping to be done: New clothes, new shoes, new crayons, and new backpacks are all in order. As the beginning of school approaches, kids start to look forward to friends they might have missed over the summer. Yes, back to school is an exciting time.
