School supplies? Check. Fall sports fundraiser? Done. School clothes? Purchased.
Utah County families are gearing up for back to school next week, which means that never-ending to-do list might actually be shrinking. But there are a few important things LDS families can do for their kids to help them make good decisions as they begin spending more time outside the home. Here are a few more items to check off your list before back-to-school night.

Life with kids in the home is always busy, but without a daily commute to and from school and with a break from regularly scheduled activities, most families find themselves with more spare time during the summer months. Making the adjustment to a more structured daily routine may be a welcome relief, but it can also mean less time for spiritually significant things.
