It's almost that time again...

I'm trying really hard to get into that frame of mind. Man, I tell you, we have been enjoying summer. Lazy mornings, rolling out of bed when we feel like it, sitting around in our jammies until 9 or 10 in the morning, and really doing whatever we want. Sadly, in just over a week, the easiness of life is over in favor of better education. Zander sure is going to miss his sister, and keeps asking when he can go to school too. Maybe if I make sure he has his own new school supplies he'll be happy at home with me for another two years.

Anyway, yesterday I asked Abigail what she would like for lunches this year, and she surprised me by saying "Fun stuff!" And when I inquired further into what that meant, she said "you know, things like pancakes, tomato soup, tacos, pizza. Things like that." And she wasn't talking about school lunch. I think she may be finally embracing being the daughter of a foodie. I'm thrilled that she wants to take hot food! So I'm on the prowl now for a good pint-sized hot lunch thermos. I can't wait to start playing around and filling up her Laptop Lunchbox with fun lunch after fun lunch. I figure I've got about a month or so before she begins staring wistfully at the chicken nuggets and mini corn dogs...

I bought myself a new lunchbox for fall, too - a Mr. bento from Amazon. I'll try to do a post on it one of these days.

Mimi, I keep eyeing up the Mr. Bento for Andy. I can't wait to see what you think of it!
