Today I had to pick all the kids up from school to take them to the orthodontist. I picked them up at 1 and 1:30 (two different schools). All of them were complaining that they were hungry. They told me that they had cheese sticks, salad and carrots for lunch. I didn't believe them, I thought surely you had something with more substance than that. So I looked on the school website. It stated the same plus a wedge of an apple (the kids told me it was a part of an apple). Who comes up with these menus? Are they made to ensure that kids stay hungry? What exactly do they think that kids will eat as soon as they get home? In many homes I am sure it is junk food. I didn't put "feed the kids" into the tight schedule so they picked up snack food when we stopped by the house to pick up Benjamin and Noah.
The orthodontist has a little play area where Noah and Benjamin played.
Noah kept crawling out of the area and escaping so Benjamin said that he would block his escape.
When Noah got past the first block Benjamin tried a different tactic....it wasn't very successful.
I got the news that I was expecting. Emma and Michelle will get their braces next. Actually this is Michelle's second set. I sure wish that adoptions would cover braces! Anthony got the good news that next week he will get his braces off, however I am still paying on them until December. Our orthodontist offers a payment program where he doesn't charge any interest. We will be making payments on four sets of braces for a while. Actually, I have changed a vacation that I had hoped to take in 2018 to 2019 because of this.
After the orthodontist I took the kids to Chic fil A where we met my husband. After that we stopped for a sno cone. Not the healthiest of food but at least they weren't hungry when they went to bed.
I am curious, how are school lunches in your area?
