Back to school week: ‘Do your homework’ edition

When the kids get home from school, that’s when the fun starts… homework. It’s time to sit down in a well-lit space and crank.  Check out my favorite tech-cessories for getting it all done.  (Snack not pictured).

We’re talking back to school all this week— have you seen our posts about getting out the door stress-free, note-taking, and locker decor? Be sure to check back all week for more posts!
