Back-to-School 2015 Round Up!

Back to School Round Up 2015

You got it!  Today is the final day of our “Back-to-School Week,” and we hope you’re ready to go – or at least readier than I am!

For your convenience, I’ve divided this into 5 sections since different people will be looking for different things! Some of these links come from the wonderful blogs we have come across by participating in Link Parties, some came from  bloggers who contacted us, and still others from our own cyber-strolls… All of them, however, can also be found on our “Back to School” Pinterest board.  You may also want to check out our Technology and Teens board, too!
