Back to school!

We are finally back to school! We had a fabulous break but it was time to go back (at least the adults felt that way). For snack we had the only remaining piece of fruit in the house (food shopping is just easier when two of the three kids are in school...) and some crackers with peanut butter (S) or creme cheese (E).
Dried fruit and canned fruit came to the rescue for lunch. The boys had yogurt with canned pineapple. Freeze dried fruit, peanuts and cookies. Neither boys ate much lunch. They say they ran out of time. I think they got used to eating at a normal pace over break... back to spped eating in the 15 minutes allotted at school... Poor kids!


  1. 15 minutes?!? Wow that's crazy! My youngins are slow eaters... it seems to take 15 minutes just to chew one bite.. :)

  2. I agree Angi! I should point out that they OFFICIALLY get 20 minutes but the fact that E's teacher gets her class there a few minutes late and that the boys insist on lining up as soon as they are allowed (5 minutes before lunchtime is over) makes it more like 15 minutes tops! They like to line up ASAP in order to have a better chance of getting a swing.... Apparently that is more important to them than eating. That is why I try to pack a large snack. They seem to always have time to finish snack.
