My girls are back in school

My girls are back in school. They actually started school on July 31st! Yes, our school district started very early. I have been trying to wake up early since school started... I'm starting to feel that I'm finally getting back into the routine this week.

Now that both of my girls are in school full time, I have to pack two lunches. It's tough trying to get everything ready in the early morning hours, but I'm managing it. My girls are very happy about taking Japanese style bento lunch to school:) Take a look at the pictures of my girls' lunch that I packed for them:) Oh, by packing lunch for them, we are saving a ton of money for our household!

Happy back to school everyone!
