Audrey received this adorable backpack from a dear old friend of mine for her second birthday. I loved it so much I purchased one in the monkey style for Maurene for Christmas. And today, while looking at Back-to-School supplies on Amazon I find that they make lunch bags! Matching! Resistance is futile. I don't know if I will go ahead and purchase them now or wait for something special like Back-to-School. That is a special holiday, right?
What got me thinking about lunch bags was a recent trip to Target and a stroll into the special Back-to-School section. Audrey had been asking for a blue striped notebook for a new field journal (apparently toddlers keep field journals?). I found one, and for only ¢10! At that price I had no problem getting one for Maurene. While the girls were exclaiming their delight over the new notebooks I perused the lunch box isle. It is a good thing we do not have much money to spend on lunch containers or the room to store them because I would have gone a little crazy. I did end up getting chilled snack containers for the girls that are just like this:Enjoy the summer folks, the school year is just around the corner. With the beginning of school we will have a number of food issues and food fun. Stay tuned for fun foods to pack in those cute new lunch bags.
You will see those chilled containers quite a bit in the coming months as we pack lunches for What's For Lunch Wednesday. It pays to have chilled containers in this heat. It's Hot in Topeka!
