Back to school fighting

Some families do back to school shopping - it appears we do back to school fighting.

For most of the summer we kept up a routine that would transition well back into the school year - the kids were up around 6:30, got themselves dressed, had breakfast, and got on with their day. But wouldn't you know, as the start of the school year approaches, and we try to squeeze more into our days, resulting in later bedtimes and overtired children, they are now easily sleeping until 7am and many attempts at a morning routine end in a fight. At least once school starts there will be no questions about why all these things have to be done in the morning because with school as the end point the answer will be obvious? I'm hoping so.

In the meantime, my goal is to keep squeezing as much out of the last days of summer as we can, striving for more patience in the morning, and getting everyone to bed closer to on time. We'll see how it goes...
