It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the blog as it’s been an incredibly busy season for me. Last Friday I made it a point to snap photos of the lunch I made for my little first grader for “Polar Express Day” at school. As soon as I sat down to write the blog post I heard about the tragedy in Newtown, CT. Needless to say, I sat in horror and watched as details emerged. It was a sad day for our nation and I’m sure many of you can relate to how anxious I was for my kids to get home from school that afternoon! Never has the sight of my boys stepping off the bus and hearing all about my son’s special day at school seemed more precious as it did that day. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy.
Having said that, I thought I’d come back and post the lunch I made for Polar Express Day. The teachers make this such a fun event for the kids so I thought a themed lunch would only add to the excitement. Today’s lunch includes: peanut butter lavish bread sandwich, string cheese, chia seed cookie, almonds, kiwi/strawberries/blueberries all packed in an Easy Lunchbox
