Memorial Day...

Jun. 1, 2012

I'm a bit delayed posting this lunch, but better late than never, right?! Things have been somewhat chaotic here as we juggle end of the year activities, two separate baseball schedules, and a new puppy in the house. Needless to say, I'm more than ready for summer week and counting! Today's lunch is one I sent to school on Tuesday after Memorial Day. When we were traveling home from our holiday getaway our boys were asking a lot of questions about Memorial Day. We answered them as best we could and explained that several members of our family have served our country including both of my grandfathers, my dad, my brother-in-law, and several cousins and friends. Later that night our youngest son asked if he could stay up late so he could "write a picture to the Army". (That was a line for his memory book!) When he was done with his picture he put it in our outgoing box and made us promise we would mail it to a "real soldier". We will definitely be mailing his picture, but I also thought I'd post it here to share with any military families out there reading this blog! Please know that we have explained there are several branches that make up our military. For some reason he's hooked on the Army right now but I know my son and the rest of my family appreciates every person who serves this wonderful country we call home! Thank you for your service!

This lunch includes: peanut butter sandwich, strawberries/blueberries, cheese curds, hard boiled egg, chocolate chip cookie (recipe HERE)
