Back to School Tips

I can't believe it's time to go back to school already!  

This is my first year that both of my sons will be in school full-time and we're ready for it! We just found out who their teachers will be and now, we are excited to learn which kids will be in their classes. This is the moment they've been waiting for, and I'm excited to share it with them.

I remember back to when my eldest was entering kindergarten. He was incredibly excited, and his eagerness to get in the classroom definitely put me at ease. This year, he'll be able to guide my little guy through full-day elementary school and I think we're all looking forward to it just as much.

Three years ago, as I was anticipating my son's first day in kimdergarten, I wrote up a blog post with lots of tips based on suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics. My kids have changed so much over the past few years, but these tips have with held the test of time.

Use Degree. Don't Sweat the World Cup!  

On our vacation, last August, we didn't visit 1 soccer stadium. Oh, no. We went to 3!

We saw Manchester United and Stoke City play at their home fields. We also took a side trip to tour Anfield, the great home of Liverpool FC. We don't get to England very often anymore, so my husband squeezed in as much soccer as he could into a two week period. We even visited the grassy field where my husband played football with his childhood friends.

Yes, we're BIG into soccer! My family has been looking forward to the FIFA World Cup for a long time, and we've had a lot of fun watching it with friends over the past couple of weeks.

The U.S. men's soccer team put up a great fight against Belgium! Even though they didn't win, they proved that they were a force to be reckoned with. It was very impressive!

This summer Degree Men and Walgreens have been cheering on the U.S. team as well. Did you know that Degree is the Official Deodorant of U.S. Soccer? Degree wants to reward fans who Do:More with a great offer.  Hurry and get to Walgreens today or tomorrow (7/4 or 7/5) and receive 1,000 Balance Rewards points when you buy 2 Degree Men Deodorant products.

Move more, play more and Do:More this summer with Degree!
