I'm a HUGE fan of the lunchbox. Getting a new lunchbox in the Fall was the most fun part about starting school. Now that my youngest is about to start all day school I'm looking forward to sharing that with her. Too bad lunchboxes are not as cute and fun as when I was small. You can't even find one with a thermos these days.
I feel ya. I try to read a lot in the summer since I can't seem to get anything fun done during the school year. My problem is finding books to read that will keep my interest for longer than 3 pages. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :o) ps- I'm a "Potter head" (Harry Potter for those not nerdy) so no romance novels.
