Glad that you were able to join us for the third annual Orange Ya' Glad it's a Blog Hop!
I am the

If you have hopped with us in the past, some things will be familiar, and some things will be new!
This year, all of our bloggers are focusing on free tips or ideas that they can share with you to get your school year off to a great start.  Some ideas will have a freebie, others might just be a stand alone concept.  The idea is to try and share things that will solve problems and create a happy and stress free first few weeks!

Let's get started shall we?

We all know that our days overflow into nights during those first few weeks of school. 
Our to-do lists are ever growing and it's easy to feel swamped with everything.
And just when you feel like you're starting to catch your breath- a sweet new face shows up to join your classroom. 

Too many times this has happened to me in the middle of juggling 10 different morning tasks.
Have you been there?
You greet the little person, shack the parent's hand, smile and nod while you're mentally going through your to-do list in your mind and trying not to glance at the clock as you know your morning prep time is precious.

Insert Parent Form Bags!
Fancy name for a not so fancy idea... but one that will save your sanity and your time.
Those first few days of school, your mail box fills up with a million forms.
Transportation, lunch applications, photo release, contact info, code of conduct... the list goes on.
On day three you get a newbie and again on day five.
No more need to scramble.
Grab a few gallon size plastic bags and put a copy of each form inside when you pass them out to your kiddos those first few days.
By the time a new little one joins your class, you can grab a bag and save yourself from spending your specials making sure you're not missing anything!
You're welcome ;)

We will be having an Instagram giveaway again!  
Here's my letter! 

 The letters all work together to give you the name of a type of orange!  
This year is a bit's a two word name!  
**Hint: Starting at Mrs. Russell's Room will help you collect the letters in order!** 

Once you've solved the puzzle...take a picture of the answer.  
Post it on instagram and hashtag it with #orangehop2015.  
We love original, do something fun with your image!

A winner will be chosen from Instagram!
Grab a piece of paper and start hoppin' along!

Next up, a blogger momma after my beach lovin' heart :)
