So we attended the Open House and have the customary first day of school photos; along with the first day of school paperwork pile.
We called daycare, 'school', because when Bear arrived his 3 sisters already all attended regular school (they live with other family). We thought calling daycare 'school' would help Bear adjust to moving from in home day care to a structured day care center with other children. Being excited then helped. He was even more excited this year. He is now in "big boy school", as he calls it; along with several of his friends from daycare.
My meal planning is only for supper. Bear eats breakfast and lunch at school. I am brown bagging lunches in an effort to save a few pennies, because parking is at premium spaces only before 8am and because I really need to drop a few pounds. Laying off the fast food is best for that! We don't have access to a great microwave, so here is what my brown bag lunches consist of:
- Chicken Salad Sandwiches, with fruit (banana or apple) and a small amount of chips.
- Tuna salad (made with mayo and sliced chucks of Golden Delicious apples) with mini Club crackers.
- Turkey sandwiches, fruit and chips.
- Pasta salad
For Supper this week we are having:Sunday - Field peas, cornbread; served with homemade salsa
Monday - Leftovers with mac n cheese
Tuesday - Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken, served over rice (new recipe)
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Crockpot Baked Potato Bar served with steamed broccoli

How is your school routine? What's for supper?
