Never Forget…

As all of you know, today marks 11 years since that fateful day when America came under attack by terrorists.  Up until this year, we haven’t discussed the details of the days events with our boys as we felt they were too young to understand.  However, my oldest son has developed quite an interest in history…especially American history.  Over the past few weeks he’s been reading through the “I Survived” book series by Lauren Tarshis.  One of the books in this series focuses on the attacks of 9/11 which led us into a conversation about the conflict in the Middle East and how the events of the attack on America unfolded.  It was a difficult and eye-opening discussion, but as one of the most significant historical events to take place in my lifetime I knew it was important to share.  We’ll never forget!

Here’s the book, “I Survived the Attacks of September 11th, 2001″, I mentioned above.  If your child is interested in historical, action packed books this is a GREAT series…I would highly recommend it!

Today’s lunch includes:  turkey/cheese sandwich, Quest protein bar, homemade fruit roll up, blueberries, string cheese, broccoli, turkey rolls, almond flour chocolate chip cookie, almonds all packed in a Planet Lunch Box

This post is dedicated to all the men and women who sacrifice so much to protect our country.  Thank you!

    Curious what brand of bread you like to use. I have cut back on dairy and grains in the home and following Maria’s blog. I have passed along your blog to many of my mom friends in the Twin Cities area. Thanks!

    Thanks for the book recommendation. Isn’t it amazing what we have lived through in our life time? Probably more than any other generation.

    Also thanks for sharing your lunches. Through your blog( this one and photography-is it stalker-ish to say I think I’ve “known” you since 2peas. Please tell you were on 2peas back in the day and I don’t have you confused with someone else! LOL!) I’ve been in contact with Maria and have been getting things in order so to speak. How long did it take for your sons to like the switch? or did they not even know the difference?!? My 3 are having a little bit of picky tendencies when trying the new recipes.
    Thanks for sharing!
