Back To School
So Ace went back to school yesterday. He was pretty excited about it, up and ready to go by 6:15 in the morning. It was fantastic to see that kind of enthusiasm for learning in him and hope that it sticks with him forever.
So far we have managed to be organized and out the door on time both days. Yay! (hey, this is huge for us) All that practicing and lecturing I did last week really seems to have paid off. The cooking I did on Friday helped as well. I was determined not to be making lunches at 6:00 in the morning this year so I spent time squirreling away recipes for lunches on Pinterest.
On Friday I made up a batch of my son's favorite homemade chicken noodle soup to freeze in small batches for school lunches here and there. I also tried out these Pizza Muffins (I tripled the recipe and froze them in twos for lunches).
The pizza muffins were a huge hit and he took them yesterday for lunch. It has also been requested that we try them out with other filling, broccoli and chicken, spinach and cheese and pepperoni and mushrooms were on the list. (I love when they love quick and easy food)
So, here to a great back to school week for everybody! I will post my super awesome soup recipe up here in the next few days. In the meantime here is Ace on his first day of Grade Two. Love this kid.
