My school age sproutlets have their first day today. I made my 5th grader Beanstalk a special lunch even though he said he only wants regular lunches - it's not too cute, I think he'll be secretly pleased :)
Bella's going into 3rd grade. She's at a different school this year, she tested into the GATE class, my little smarty-pants. I'm so impressed by her, she has such an aptitude for math, which amazes me, it was always my weak subject. So big day for her - new school, new friends, more challenging curriculum - she'll do great though, she's very outgoing and confident. Pizza roll-ups for her, fruit leather, almonds, and Gala apples with a caramel dip (in the repurposed play-doh tub).
Pickle has his usual peanut butter sandwich, of course. He also got yogurt, and Oreos for a treat. He was so excited to go back to school, he was dressed and ready to go, shoes and backpack on, by 6:45 am - we don't leave the house until 8:40!
Bean Sprout and Baby Bird have butterfly pasta for their preschool lunches, with broccoli trees, grapes, baby carrots, ham butterflies for Sprout, and cheddar jack cheese for Birdie. They both have little containers of grated parmesan cheese to sprinkle on their pasta. I hope they don't make too much of a mess with that!
I had lunchbox notes printed but forgot to stick them in! Boo :( Tomorrow!
