Bus Day…

Well, today was the BIG day for my baby boy.  He’s been anticipating the first day of school for quite some time as year after year he would watch his brother get on the bus and drive away without him.  Throughout the summer he’s been keeping track of how many sleeps until he got to ride to school on the bus.  Needless to say, when he woke up this morning he was beyond excited that the day had FINALLY come.  He watched out the window waiting oh, so patiently for the big yellow bus to drive up our street.  When it did, he hopped on the bus with one of the the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen on his face.  I made it to the school just in time to see him walk off the bus still grinning ear to ear.  This will surely be one of the highlights of his first day of Kindergarten.


A bus themed lunch in honor of this very special day…ham/cheese lavash bread sandwich with pepperoni wheels and white American cheese accents, carrots/ranch, grapes, sugar-free choclate “chalkboard” with white American cheese letters, homemade fruit roll up (you can click on the underlined word to get the recipe):

    What an awesome lunch for a first day of school. I love it. Where do you get your ideas? Also, I have looked through so much of this site and jotted down some of your ideas for lunch. I ever had my soon to be 8 year old picking out lunches he would eat. But, my concern is he wouldn’t actually eat it at school. Do you ever find that the lunches you send to school come back home only half eaten? My son is all about playing after lunch in school so my guess is he would eat the basics and then jam out to play. Any suggestions on how to prevent this? I’m guessing a great deal of time goes into your lunches and me being very short on time (but LOVING to do this and most willing) I want to make sure to get the best bang for my buck.

  2. please tell me you will right a book : ) with lists for the grocery store…. is that asking to much.

  3. I love your first day picture! Your lunch is awesome too.

    I would love for you to link this post to my Back to School Traditions link up!

    What a lunch!!! I’m pretty sure if I had discover your blog few years ago, my son packed lunches would have been more successful! By the way I take inspiration from your blog for my own packed lunches ;-)

    Love this lunch idea, and the idea to race the bus to school and be there for him getting off! What kind of camera do you use? Looking to buy a new camera and could use some recommendations…. although it will take a while for me to get this quality pictures.
