The LAST day of School!

Yeah I kind of got messed up on my count down... But today IS the last day of school. I can't believe my twins are now second graders. This year was full of challenges - being in school all day, being in separate classes etc. But the boys handled it with such grace. I think I had a way harder time with it than they did. They had a great year - learned a lot and learned to love school (even as they are THRILLED that it is summer break!) I am so proud of them.
For their last snack as first graders (sniff) they had raisin bread with cream cheese and apple slices.
For lunch they had pizza, berries and carrot sticks.

What I've learned form packing lunches regularly this year...

1. The boys eat a LOT of pizza!
2. I was pretty good about packing a lot of fruits but almost no vegetables.
3. I really DID for the most part enjoy making their lunches each day. I think knowing their were people out there checking out the blog really helped - so thanks!

I'm sure I will have opportunities over summer break to pack lunches so I will continue to post occasionally. Whats For Lunch At Our House is hosting a "What's For Lunch Wednesday" with an opportunity to share lunches so I hope to do that along with some more Muffin Tin Mondays

Happy Summer Everyone!

2 more days of school!

Snack today was sunflower seeds and raisins in the oval container and grapes and a maple sugar candy. The maple sugar candy is from Mom's special (and not often shared) stash. :)
Lunch was a cream cheese and jelly bagel, apples, cucumber, cauliflower and a lemon bar square.
