1st Day of School Lunches 2014

Well, the first day of school is already upon us for us year-round school goers. We enjoyed a nice week off between their last day and today. Got my last-minute back-to-school supplies shopping done last night after we rolled in from a nice long weekend in MD/DC. That meant I finished up my shopping at 11pm last night, but I'm just glad it's all done and all I need to get today is 1 yellow 2-pocket 3-prong plastic folder. Walmart was all picked over last night!

Anyway, here are the obligatory 1st day of school pics. Kind of sad I didn't get them in my usual spot in front of our lovely school, but that place was a ZOO and both girls wanted to be dropped off at carpool this morning. sniff, sniff. Thinking back, I should have insisted since this is Big Sis' last year at this elementary school, and the last time they will both be in the same school until Big Sis' SENIOR year of high school. WAAAAHHHHHHH!!! I want a re-do! lol.


And here's the lunch. Big Sis' was very similar, but w/o the strawberries. sigh.
