Anyway, summer school has been a great experience for Peter. He goes three times a week from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Silly me, I thought I was going to get a little break this summer while he was away - but didn't pause to think what a half day meant for me in travel time. As I've mentioned numerous times...we are a one car family. That one car goes to work with my dear husband and the kids and I hoof-it everywhere. Not a big deal, in fact I prefer it. I always feel like I'm unpacking the circus every time I get the opportunity to keep the car...it's a real pain in the butt! It's soooo sooo much easier to pack up the stroller and whip out the door than to haul the baby car seat to the car and get hoisted in, then get the toddler strapped in, then the stroller goes in the trunk and the diaper bag in the back seat - no wait, move it to the front seat because the toddler likes to unpack the diaper bag and throw the contents everywhere. Add to the fact we are rarely in the car my son gets super-duper antsy really fast when we are finally in the car. Because when we take the stroller he can hop out and walk whenever he wants.
ANYWAY, I got off on a tangent, what the point is...getting to Peter's summer camp is a series of buses and walking that takes roughly and hour to an hour and a half (it's a 10 min. drive in the car). So...up in the morning, haul the kids on the bus (which Peter enjoys immensely!) and drop Peter at school. Paul and I get back on the bus to go home, get Paul down for a nap and as soon as he's up we're back on the buses to pick Peter up and THEN BACK on the buses again to get home. Whew...it's tiring and I'm thankful this is the last week.
Still...another tangent...the POINT to this post is Peter's lunches! I've been having so much fun finding cute little things to send off for Peter's lunch time. I really enjoy packing away little surprises for him. (I'll post some other time about my mistake of sending cheese-peanut butter crackers to school...ooo ...that was bad news!). ANYWAY (again off on a tangent)...I bought these adorable bento boxes for Peter to use while in school. Never mind I didn't get them until last week - I plan for him to use them when he starts daycare this fall. Here's my first bento to go for Peter...so fun making these!!!
