Back-to-school is definitely here! You have either already started back or like many, will be returning the day after Labor Day. This time of year can be a hard transition; going from all the freedom and excitement that summer offers you to a structured day of sometimes very mundane activities.
However, we all know that school/education sets the foundation for the rest of your child’s life and we want them (and you) to have a little motivation to take you into the 2014/2015 school year so we are sharing some inspirational and some funny quotes that we found.
