First Day of School (#1)

Today is the first day of school for two of my girls. There is a staggered entry into school so Heidi will not go back until Thursday. Today, Amy started Primary 3 (like US Grade 2) & Rose started Primary 1 (like US Kindergarten). Heidi will be a Full Day in the Children's House at school which is like US Pre-K. New this year - Emily is starting a playgroup a few mornings a week. She starts next week.

Here they are all ready for school. Rose has gym today so she starts in her gym uniform and Amy starts in their regular uniform.

Lunch is packed in their Planetbox Rover lunchboxes today.

Rose's lunch; she's trying a little salad in her lunch for the first time!

grapes, sliced pineapple, salad with butter lettuce, radishes, cucumber & carrots, carrot sticks, orange pepper, celery, Rainbow Light kids one vitamin, turkey sandwich with cheddar topper.

Amy was a little less adventurous in her lunch choices today
grapes & pineapple, carrots sticks, cucumber & celery sticks, honey grahams and a turkey sandwich (she specifically wanted this puppy and dog house)

I am going to make an effort to pack fewer sandwiches this school year, but I wanted to start the first day off with something familiar, I'll start to try new things slowly. Next week, I am away for work so Daddy will be packing all of the lunches. I hope he takes a photo!

Rose was so happy to see her lunch she wanted me to take a photo of her with her lunch!

Here are some items that I used when making this lunch.
