It’s been over 20 years since I packed a school lunch. When things got hectic (and they usually were), I remember telling myself, One day I’ll miss this. Full disclosure: I don’t. Or at least, I don’t miss the frenzied mornings, the busy afternoons, the overdoing it on school supplies. In fact, I still have leftover brown paper sacks – every time I’d go to Costco, I’d think, We probably need more lunch bags. (We didn’t). I could have used the advice of two local moms who share back-to-school tips and tricks for helping to keep their large families organized, plus sweet traditions they look forward to each year. Also in this issue, we learn what it means to grow up being a “southpaw” aka a lefty. Only about 10 percent of the US population are left-handed, including one of my sons. Read Cathy Gordon’s story to find out lefty facts and myths and famous southpaws. Whether you’re making lists of school supplies and lunch items or not, here’s to a safe and stress-free start to this school year! [email protected]
