It has been a great week to cook for my kids while participating in project lunchbox. While I almost always pack lunches for the littles, this week has given me a new perspective on it as I looked for new, healthy, more exciting things to pack.
There is nothing spectacular about any of the lunches. Most of them are just made by putting together a little bit of leftovers with some fruit and vegetables. What has made them special is the extra little effort of coming up with something new, different, and fun for them. Because, as much as the school year wears on me, it does the same thing to them. We need to encourage each other. And, sometimes something as simple as a fun lunch is all the encouragement that they need.
