make lunch--check!

Andy is so, SO excited about going back to school.  He has all his new supplies, and we recently found the perfect backpack and lunch box, after MUCH deliberation--Spiderman.  He decided, for both himself and for Ben, that the backpack needed to match the lunchbox.  I totally agree.  (Ben got Batman, by the way.)  So, for a few days now, Andy has asked if he could pack lunch in the new Spiderman lunchbox.  Well, that doesn't really make sense when we are eating peanut butter sandwiches in our kitchen.  Yesterday, he asked again if he could pack a lunch.  I told him that was a fantastic idea, because we were going to work at school for a while the next day.  A little while later, I hear him bustling around in the kitchen, and this is what I found when I got to him:

He packed "lunch" for the two of them.  As you can see, ha made excellent choices:  peanut butter crackers, granola bars, raisins, fruit snacks, fruit roll-ups, chocolate covered pretzels, yogurt, string cheese, and a drink.  Wow!  He put the same things in both lunches, because "that's fair."  I love that he thought to put all the cold stuff together on the bottom.  He's so funny!
I am so pumped to know that I will not have to make lunches for them every night...Andy obviously has everything under control!
I seriously wonder what their teachers would say about me if I sent this to school?????

I'm so proud of Andy for thinking of Ben as well, what a sweet brother! Can't wait for them to come hang with us this week!

Can Andy come over and pack my lunch? Looks pretty good to me.
