We all know that Caroline might quite possibly be the biggest Olivia fan on the planet. Well, last spring when she discovered that Olivia's friend, Francine, takes a bento box lunch to school, Caroline decided she simply must get one, too. We found this pink one at Pottery Barn Kids back in July. The top left compartment has its own "door," so Caroline asked if I could put a "special, secret dessert" inside of it that will be a surprise for her when she finishes her main meal. You can see it's vanilla oreos, but she still has another hour before she gets to find out.
Is this girl excited to be headed back to school, or what? :o)
The one thing I was not prepared for this morning was Jackson's reaction to dropping Caroline off. During the 3 months of summer, the amount of time Jackson spends actually playing with Caroline (as opposed to separately but in the same room with her) has increased dramatically. He was so very, very upset that she walked into school leaving him in the mini-van.
