12 days!!! That is how long I have until my older two children head back to school! Not that I am counting or anything. Seriously, I am not.

Ok… Well, maybe I am… Not because I want them to head back to school, but rather because I am craving the return to routine. My family lives for routine and structure.

We have had a lot of fun this Summer. Between Wonderland trips and a week at the cottage, it has been a Summer to remember. That being said we have also had a lot of downtime at home. With an infant in tow and a daughter on modified bed rest there hasn’t necessarily been a heck of a lot to do.

Rather I have spent a lot of my days bouncing the baby in the carrier while pacing the house. I have clocked a fair amount of mileage. I have also used this time to get creative in the kitchen. Trying out new recipes. There is nothing I love more than testing out new quick and easy lunch recipes that are kid-friendly, but not only that… They can be used for school lunches!

As a Mom of 4, I dread making school lunches. Heck – don’t we all? I mean the first few weeks of the new school year we’re all like, “Yes, I got this! This year I will make spectacular healthy meals for my child to take to school everyday!” and then you reach the point of not wanting to do it.

I have the hope that this year I can come up with a variety of different sandwiches that the kids like. This way they can rotate through them week in and out, helping to decrease the risk of a sandwich recipe growing old.
