Today is the first day of school here in the M-town (insert frowny face), and the little guy is starting 2nd grade. We had a blast this summer (insert happy face)...lots of pool time and 2 fun vacations. Back to school time always leaves me a bit melancholy. I know that Z has missed his friends, and he's always happy and enthusiastic to go back to school. But, I love having my kidlets home with me. I just miss them when school starts. However, I'm pretty sure that the first kid-free grocery shopping trip (insert enormously happy face) will cure me of the back-to-school blues, and I'll be back on track.
This lunch is packed in the Yumbox Panino. You can see my Yumbox review HERE.
*peanut butter and strawberry all-fruit spread sandwich- I cut the words "Hello 2nd grade" from a slice of Swiss cheese and sprayed the letters lightly with Wilton Color Mist. A little dab of cream cheese on the back holds the letters in place.
*Rold Gold mini pretzels
*strawberries and grapes with school themed cupcake pick
*Babybel cheese with a "2" cut from the cheese wax
