As August draws to a close, parents grapple with the annual challenge of the back to school season. Summer is a time for families to ease back on schedules and be a bit freer with their time. Children stay up later at night, sleep in, run around in flip-flops and bathing suits and enjoy time with their friends. Stress begins to mount as fun summer days fade away and new class schedules, homework, practices, and games start to fill your calendar. While the abrupt change in routine can be challenging, to appreciate the beauty of the final summer days and the excitement of the back to school season. There are friendships to cultivate, adventures to experience, and new opportunities to explore.

"The back to school season in Cohasset brings excitement and nostalgia," saidJenniferLord, a agent former Pre-K and Kindergarten teacher turned Gibson Sothebys International Realty agent based in the Cohasset office. "Seeing the children in the community excitedly walk, pedal and scooter to school Tuesday morning, ready for the start of a new academic year, is a reminder of why education is so fundamentally important. It was clearly evident that my daughters were both happy to be back with their friends and also focused on their learning goals for the school year. Jennifer is a mother of three young girls between eight and fifteen.

This season always brings a mix of feelings as we trade in the lazy days of summer for a school year schedule wound tight," added Kate Rogan, a Scituate resident who serves as the Office Marketing Coordinator for Gibson Sothebys International Realtys offices in Hingham and Cohasset. The beautiful foliage in the Fall blended with the unspoiledcoastline helps my children and me stay relaxed all year long.

The South Shore offers ample opportunities for family fun in the colder months, from bowling alleys to movie theaters to Fall-themed festivals and outdoor events.

The area offers a range of family-friendly activities through the Fall season. I take my children to enjoy a picnic by the pond, savor a scenic nature walk or shop for back-to-school wear in the locally owned specialty shops. Once the back-to-school jitters have subsided, the beauty of nature surrounds usand the family fun is plentiful, whether we want to experience local culture or frolic on a farm.

The energy emanating from teachers, students, and families make those first few days and weeks of school a memorable experience for all.Whether your child has already had their first day ofschool or is still anticipating the big day, Gibson Sothebys International Realty wishes you a happy and healthy start to the academic year!
