I think I went overboard..

Packing the girls lunches for the first day of school, hehe! In each lunch I included:
tortilla and ham roll up
salad with cheese and croutons and a side of dressing
goldfish
chips
juice
water
grapes
and a mini fruit roll up

and to top it all off, I included a note in each. I could barely close their lunch boxes! I didn't want them to get hungry LOL! I hope they don't just eat the chips and fruit roll up LOL!

They are so excited for the first day of school! They have their uniforms all ready and their new shoes. Backpacks are packed. My 8 y/o said "Mom's going to take pictures of us tomorrow because she always takes pictures of us on the first day of school". haha, she's right!

Anyone else's first day of school tomorrow?

Sounds like it, but I understand.

Our 1st day of school isn't until Aug. 25th. The girls (E & L) have full day zoo camp this week and then we are headed to Branson for vacation the following week.

I did have to pack their lunches for tomorrow for camp, though.
E: salami sandwich, cheese stick, raspberries, carrots, tube yogurt, juice box
L: salami sandwich, strawberries, carrots, tube yogurt, juice box

Very nice. Can you pack me a lunch every day? I think our first day of preschool is on September 8th but I'm not 100% sure (just signed him up). I am so not ready.

I always over pack my kids lunches. I just don't want them to go hungry. I've always included a note and my DD loves it. Her teacher told me that all the kids at my DD's table would want to see it and/or ask what her note said that day.

Re: I think I went overboard..

Isaac's not in school yet, but he should be doing VBS this week ( I hope his cold is better tomorrow!) They're eating Korean food, but I packed his snacks since he's dairy free. Mini oreos/nutterbutters, pretzels, Jammy Sammies, Z bars, dried bananas/raisins/apricots, and some Motts for Tots juice boxes.
I'm sure the kiddos are going to have Goldfish, so I'm going to try and find an alternative to those (which he LOVES) at Whole Foods today when I go to get him some more vitamins and cold medicine.
