Henry's Lunchbox - Week 12

This week Henry packed 4 days of school lunches 

For December, our family is doing a kindness advent calendar. Each morning we find out a secret kindness mission for the day and talk about the experience at dinner. I put together a version that fits our family with kid-friendly ideas from several sources. We're calling them "secret kindness missions" since it gives Henry a sense that he has a special job (like a secret agent).

On DAY 4 (December 1), I used Henry's lunchbox note to remind him about this new December routine. I read him the note before school so that he would know what it said. His kindness activity for the first day was to give both of his teachers a compliment. During breakfast, we role played a few things that he could say. At dinner, he reported back that his mission was accomplished. He is already excited about what comes next!

Ready for Kindergarten

It's back to school season and Henry starts kindergarten on Monday!
It should be an easy transition for him since Henry will be in the same classroom with the same teacher as his preschool year. For the past three weeks, he has been lamenting that school is better than summer break and he wants to see all his friends again. His goal for the year is to learn to read so he can devour Pokemon cards and comic books. I love that he is excited to be back at school. 

The format and frequency of this blog will be changing this year. Henry has asked that I not take daily photos of his lunches. He says that he would still like to share pictures of his favorite lunches on occasion. I also plan to write a few product reviews of lunchboxes and water bottles. 

Our family is in the process of moving to a new house this month as well, so my focus is on getting us settled into the new space. As a result, I won't be writing much on the blog in September but hope to post at least once per month sta…

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
