No surprise to anyone who knows us or reads this blog regularly, but we rarely have the boys buy lunch from the school cafeteria. This is great in so many ways:

#1: We control what our kids eat, not some school lunch meal planner.

#2: I think it’s cheaper though doubtful with all the organic this and organic that. But I like to think we are saving a few bucks this way.

#3: Lunchboxes are so cool these days. Our boys have personalized lunchboxes by Yubo.

#4: My wife Stephanie’s art degree gets used every morning.

I like Reason #4 the best because it’s always interesting seeing what napkin art is happening every morning.  The other day, I noticed the picture above. Apparently, Theo wanted a dancing clementine (orange) in his lunch. Ta Da! Dancing Clementine with top hat and dance shoes created in a minute.

Perhaps I should start having Stephanie pack my lunch. I wonder if I too would get dancing fruit?

Do you pack your children’s lunches and if so do you leave a note or some artwork for them to enjoy later that day?
