    So yesterday he got to sit with his pals at lunch. He actually tried and liked the calzone they had at lunch. We had to talk it up that it was just like pizza. It was just folded over. He is such a distrustful eater. His best buddy threw a car bucket, no cars in it, at him or towards him so he has a nice little cut across the bridge of his nose. Not sure how they accomplished this but I'm glad it wasn't something that Levi started. There is only one other person in his class (an unknown girl) that is taking french. Everyone else is in Spanish. All in all a good day. He was a bit tired as we headed home but got a second wind when we got home.

    I am not hopeful today about him eating lunch as the menu is Chipotle Rubbed Pollo Asado Fajitas served with Warm Organic Flour Tortillas, Cotija Cheese, Fresh Guacamole And Corn Salsa. Sounds great to me but doubt he will touch it. Better pack a larger snack today.

    Neither of my kids would eat that but it sounds good to me. Does he have to eat the lunch they provide or can he bring his own?

    You can bring your own lunch. For hot lunch you have to sign up for the entire month. I'm doing it because 1) I'm too lazy to deal with packing a lunch plus he is use to having a warm lunch and 2) I hope it will help broaden his eating horizons. We will see how successful this social experiment will be.

    I bet kids would try it - in my house you'd just have to call it a chicken roll up. It's all in the marketing, right? But you are right, I bet this will broaden his horizons - they are probably very hungry by the time lunch rolls around anyway.

    Lily came home famished every day her first week because she and her newfound friends were busy trying to "train" their bananas - to stand, roll over...so basically messing around instead of eating. I stopped packing bananas and told her to knock it off and eat. Hasn't helped much but like I said she is pretty hungry by lunchtime so she gets it done.
