That Time of Year Again
School is back in session….which can only mean one thing…it is the time of year that I need to start complaining about packing school lunches. This will be the only time that you have to hear about it though. I think. If you listened to yesterday’s podcast you have already heard some discussion about lunch packing….
So, first full week back at it and here are today’s lunches and snack bag snacks.
Lunch: spicy tuna rolls, strawberries, mini peppers, and a granola bar.
Snack Bag: Cinnamon english muffin with apple butter spread, cheddar goldfish, and an apple.
Can’t dare forget the water bottle….or the 4 individual ice packs that keep their food cold enough during the day.
The boys will, undoubtedly, still get in the car at 4:00 when I pick them up from “after care” at school and tell me that they are starving….so there will be a pre-popped bag of popcorn waiting for them.
In their defense, their schedule today looks like this:
Leave the house at 7:30
School from 8:00-4:00 (which, on a Monday, also involves a 30 mins. recess, a 45 minute fitness class for Finn, a 90 minute kayaking trip for gym class for Thatch, and then a full hour on the playground after school while I finish up my work.
Then, Finn has hockey practice from 5:00-6:00….and Thatch takes the ice from 6:00-7:00.
So….there also needs to be some extra apples and bananas in the car waiting for the ride home from the rink…to get them by until dinner.
Their appetites are insatiable lately (understandably) and I swear they eat more in one day than I eat in three.
