Can’t believe it!!  Brandon starts school August 1 and I barely had time to enjoy the time off.  Yes… “time off” .  When Brandon is in school… I’m in school because the homework and projects are on another level!!  And to top it off… I have so much anxiety thinking about fun & nutritional food to pack for lunch.  I was SOOO excited to see these awesome “healthy” school lunch ideas from Parent Magazine.  My Brandon LOVES veggies, wheat, fruits and even sushi… so this should be a breeze!!
