For me, the first day of this new school year has already come and gone as we attend year-round schools. In fact, we have just started our first "track out" which means after 3 weeks of school (the start is always a little odd for our track), we are out for three weeks and then we will start our more regular 9 weeks "on" and 3 weeks "off" schedule. I gotta say, I love it! Gives me a break just about when we all need it, from the daily grind of making lunches and getting kids off to school. But even with just a week off between grades, I felt fresh and recharged and ready to start the new year. I hope you guys have enjoyed your summer, whatever schedule you guys are on, and will be rarin' to start off your new school year, too!

This is what I sent the girls on their first day of school this year. Pictured is Little Sis' lunch. Big Sis' was very similar but without the fresh fruit. lol. and *sigh* Got this awesome recipe from my favorite new cookbook from Laura Fuentes, the founder of MOMables: Best Homemade Kids Lunches Planet. It's just the thing you need to get yourself off on the right foot!
