It's official. The children have gone back to school and our fall routine has been set in motion! Both children were excited but a little nervous for their first day. Unfortunately, opening ceremonies had to be cancelled due to (excessive) rain but they didn't seem to be too unsettled by that change of plans.
I thought it was super cute, but I must admit that it will not happen with any regularity for several reasons. 1. it took too long to make 2. it fell apart in their lunch boxes (seriously, Harris had no idea his sandwich was supposed to be a pencil!) 3. it's a little too much wasted food for me (all those scraps of cheese and bread!)
Even though the children won't be getting "artistic" lunches all the time, I would still like to send a variety of food. Any ideas or suggestions are welcome!
