Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and with Mazen in school for the good part of the day and with Matt several times a week, I try to make the afternoons we spend together extra special. I have set hours to work and set hours to play, so I am trying to focus on Mazen when we’re together. Recently we had a really nice, sort-of-warm day, and I decided to pack up some snacks and take a trip to the library. I picked Mazen up from school and surprised him with an adventure.
Knowing he’d be hungry after school, I packed a bento box of snacks for us to share. Mini Babybel, today’s sponsor, is one of my favorite lunchbox staples. Whether I’m packing snacks or a lunch, I try to include a protein, a fruit, a veggie, and a whole grain. The Mini Babybel varieties are a good source of calcium and protein, and what I love most about them is they are so easy to toss in. A great addition to any lunch or snack box!
Here we are!
We went inside for reading first. Mazen chose a fairy tale to start.
Then we decided to look on the shelves for Grammie’s book, Purple Mountain Majesty, which is the story of Katharine Lee Bates and the trip up Pike’s Peak that inspired her to write the poem “America The Beautiful”. It took a little hunting down, using the library’s computer search categorization system and refreshing my alphabetizing memory, but we found it!
Mazey was very proud!
After a few more books, we went outside for our picnic.
He went right for the cheese!! Unwrapping the cool red wax is a four-year-old’s dream job.
And we were all fueled up for the bike ride / walk home : )
