First Day of 1st Grade!

Today marks the first day of school. First grade. 
With the "big kids" as Miss C call them. 
Apparently, Kindergarteners are the babies. 
Well they are ALL babies to me!

Stop growing, Miss C!!! 

 Between getting myself ready for work, getting Miss C ready for school and Baby E's things for daycare, and packing lunches, I was a disorganized mess this morning! I'm trying to figure out how to juggle everything. This 2-children morning thing is so new to me.

But Miss C did not miss the bus today and I was at work by 8:30am.  
So I consider this morning a WIN!

Miss C's Lunch: 
mini PBJs faces (at her request) 
blueberries and raspberries, peach yogurt 
and a small piece of chocolate

packed in an EasyLunchBox

Daddy's turn!

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
