the lunch room - August

I know, right, you all think I'm crazy!  now I'm taking pics of the kids lunches.  cause, ya know, my schedule is pretty open and I have nothing better to do than constantly photograph random things!

no, but really, it's just sort of a fun little "project" I came up with after getting engrossed in some super fun blogs that are on this very subject.  homemade lunches.  "bento" style lunches to be exact.  let me tell ya, there are some super creative folks out there giving their children masterpieces every day in their lunch boxes.  so far I haven't really made the effort to do anything elaborate, it's right at the level that I can both have fun and provide a pretty healthy meal for my kiddos.

so, I decided to make this goal to take a photo of every lunch I make this year.  see, crazy!  but, hey, it's just for fun and I'll have all these cool photos to look back on someday ... not to mention I'll have photographic evidence that, yes, I did make an effort and send home packed lunches!  in case my children's memories are anything like mine and they forget these little things that all us mommies do!
