Back To School Bus And Pencil Bento

Today is the first day of school here and Nikolai will be starting Grade 3. We had a blast of a summer this year and did a lot of traveling compared to previous years. We even went for a last minute out of town trip to Orlando on Saturday after meeting his teacher and attending the school open house.

Back to school is always a bitter sweet time for me. Sweet is because I know that Nikolai missed his friends and will be very happy to see them. Bitter part is just me, I miss spending time with him so much and it was difficult for me to drop him off at school this morning. Anyway, time will usually get me back on track and here is his first day of school bento.

Back To School Bus and Pencil Bento Lunch
In this bento lunch:
  • Main compartment - Bus shaped sandwich which I free hand cut with Smoked Gouda and Colby Longhorn cheese. Large olive slices for wheels. Some cute food picks as little people.
  • Lower left - Baby carrots and ranch in little dipper.
  • Upper left - Seedless green grapes and strawberry halves.
  • Center - Blueberries
  • Upper right - Pencil shaped cheddar string cheese with mozzarella tip,raisin for pencil lead and ham for eraser, pencil tip and eraser are secured with a thin spaghetti. Wheat thins below the pencil. Packed in our PlanetBox Rover and I included a LunchBox Love note with his lunch.
