Also, my youngest is starting kinder this year, her first year in school (I'm crying a little inside). She is going to have the toughest time adjusting especially when it comes to eating her lunch in such a short amount of time. The little girl can sit for almost an hour at the table eating her food in complete leisure. So, starting next week we're doing kinder boot camp so that we can practice things she'll need to do on her own and at a quicker pace. Eating in a short amount of time will be on the agenda. Any ideas to make lunches easy and quicker for her would be helpful, too.
Thanks to everyone. I'm looking forward to hearing some of your ideas.
