We have pretty much a whole week of back to school here. Yesterday was the holiday and today the school starts phasing in the students. Amy started today with most of the school, Heidi starts tomorrow and Rose on Thursday. We completely overslept this morning and didn't wake up until 7:55 am! Very late but we made it. It was a blessing that we only had to get one daughter out the door today for school :) The others went on a play date with some children who will be in Heidi's class so that was a good diversion this morning. We didn't have to be there until 9:30 so no trouble there. So needless to say lunch didn't go quite as planned but it's still mostly healthy and colourful and I think Amy will love it.
2 gingermen cookies (the least healthy part!),
blanched broccoli and raw carrots sticks with peanut butter for dipping,
strawberries, cantaloupe and ham sandwiches.
Amy is in Primary 2 this year so that's what the P2 is all about. I was going to cut out some ham and cheese letters and put them the horizontal sandwich ( "is FUN") but time ran out.I just about had time to snap this quick photo of lunch and then take one of her all dressed in uniform and ready to go -- then my camera battery died! Boo. no time to go grab the phone so no first day photo. I think I'll fake it and take a photo of all of them on Thursday ;). I hope everyone else had a more relaxed first morning of school than we did. I might start making lunches the night before but I always wonder how the sandwiches taste etc. Does the bread stay soft?
As I sit her writing this I can't help but wonder about how Amy's first day is going. I hope she makes new friends pretty quickly. She is in a new class this year and there is only one other boy from her class last year in her new class this year. I have probably been more worried about it than she has as she's so easy going. Well there is only 2 hours of school left so I guess I'll hear all about it shortly.
