Today's lunch: chili mac; AdvoBar, cheddar cubes, orange, cucumber slices; water.

Little guy has been sick the last few days,  so I went light on his lunch portions.  It remains to be seen if he will make it to lunchtime without going to the nurse and coming home.

September 10th

I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of Andrew's lunch this morning.  Well, I can believe it, there's a lot going on here in the mornings and my brain is not as young as it used to be.  Anyway, lunch today was California rolls, seaweed salad, miso soup, and a bottle of water.  The seaweed salad came back untouched.  But hey, he said the kids in the cafeteria had no comment, which I'll take as a win!

Gearing Up, 2015-Style

It's so hard to believe that Karate Kid is going into sixth grade!  I'm getting ready for another year of packing lunches, but now it's for a tween boy with the appetite of a swarm of starving locusts!  I'm going to try to put pictures of his lunches on this blog because it seems that there isn't a lot of information out there about pack lunches for teenagers.  This year we're going to facing new challenges, between peer pressure and weaning out the cutesy stuff, I think I've got my work cut out for me.  

School starts Wednesday.  Stay tuned...
