May 11th

Andrew had a field trip to the farm, and because I cannot pack a completely disposable lunch he was at the mercy of the school lunch program.

He has a peanut butter & jelly "uncrustable", pink applesauce, and fruit juice. Sounds like there were some gaping holes in the My Plate theory, I'm glad he had yogurt and chia seeds for breakfast!
