Here's what's got our attention this week.
There’s a line in the children’s book Goodnight Beach that says, “Does the beach make you hungry?” I didn’t know it was a common phenomenon until I read that, and it’s so true. We go through a ton of snacks at the beach. These are the “healthy” version of a Dorito and just as tasty! These disappear in two minutes in our house. And these are our all time favorite salty chip.
I can’t believe it’s almost back to school! I’m anticipating a relatively easy drop off for James, but these tips were a good reminder of what to do if things don’t go so smoothly. At his age, Louise was clinging to me for dear life. Her teacher and I would have to pry her little fingers off me, one by one. It was so stressful and heartbreaking! One thing that helped her once she reached pre-K was keeping a small family photo with her. After all the family time we’ve had lately, I might get ahead of it and stick one in her pocket just in case.
James starts full days at school this year (heartbreak emoji) so we’ll send him to school with lunch for the first time. I know I’m probably unusually picky about a lunchbox (it’s just a lunchbox!) but I can’t help it. Searching for a cute printed one makes me think we need to partner with a lunchbox company! Radish lunchbox anyone?? I ended up getting him this one which I’m hoping will remind him of all the fun times he had fishing this summer and maybe help him strike up a conversation with a new friend.
