This year, back to school marks a new season in my son, Collin’s, life. His father lives three hours away and he will be seeing him a little less during the school year as our son begins Kindergarten, which makes for two hearts that will be doing a whole lot of missin’. Thankfully, both Daddy and I have smart phones with great data plans to keep in constant communication. It’s been roughly three weeks since Collin started school and we’ve already figured out a few creative ways to get his Daddy involved.

This year, Collin’s class learns ten new sight words (a sight word is a commonly used word that children are asked to memorize by sight) each week. He is sent home with a list every Monday and tested on Friday. This is his only homework and just happens to be the perfect kind of homework for our family’s situation. When I receive the new list on Monday, I text it to Collin’s Daddy and he creates a set of flash cards. Every night before bed, Collin video calls his Dad for a sight word lesson and run through. He’s usually mastered the words within a day or two, but consistency is key where sight words are concerned.


The Walmart Family Mobile plan and phone has given my blended family convenient way for each of us to be just a phone call away at an affordable price. Walmart Family Mobile service is $29.88/month (for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data, which includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data. With all of the added costs back to school season brings to a family, saving money on your mobile plan can make a world of difference where budget is concerned. To help offset back to school backpack, crayon, calculator, and other costs, check out the LG Leon LTE for just $79.82 (on Rollback from $99.82) or the ZTE Zinger for just $19.88 (was $29.88).

This school year promises to be one of growth not only academically, but also for our family and circumstances. With Walmart Family Mobile connecting us, we have the tools we need to remain connected, strong, and bonded, no matter the distance.
