Fieldtrip Day

October 24, 2008 at 10:21 pm 4 comments

Today Nathan’s class went to the pumpkin patch for a fieldtrip. I couldn’t chaperone, because the little kids couldn’t come.

So, to make up for my absence I had to make him a really special lunch.

I cut the bread with my pumpkin cookie cutter and smeared on some apple butter. He’s decided he doesn’t like cream cheese with his apple butter. He does like peanut butter with it, but his class is peanut free. I swiped the raisins through cream cheese and made a face with them.

I added an apple and apple juice, along with some Trader Joes cheez-its, string cheese, and a cookie.

It had to be in a brown bag, so I embellished. I wrote his name on the stem.

I’m sure my days are numbered getting away with this stuff, because it will be so not cool!

The little kids at home got these…

I just cut one piece of bread each and topped it with American cheese. The raisins were stuck on with peanut butter.

They got to have these to drink. They are made with inverted cane sugar instead of HFCS. I’ll just let you know now that the werewolf candy corn flavor is disgusting. The kids and I tricked Ricardo into trying it.

    I know I should say how lucky your kids are — and they are — but I am feeling sorry for myself after reading this post because stuff like this makes me miss you!!
