My kids went back to school this past week and for the first time, I have four kids in four different schools.
Being from a family that moves around a bit, my kids have learned that while friends are amazing, the best friends they have are the ones that move with them--their siblings.
So being in four different schools has been a bit difficult for some of them to handle. They are used to reling on each other for friends, help, and in social situations.
While I was gathering up their school supplies this week, I thought about how I might be able to help and encourage them this year. Then I thought about all the school lunch notes that I've seen on Pinterest lately. My kids eat lunch at school, so that wasn't really an option for me to use, but I decided I still wanted to use the idea.
So I created up some encouraging quotes in the form of lunchbox notes. I plan on sneaking them into their backpacks during the week and see if they say anything when they find them. Hopefully it will be a fun (an not uncool) way for them to know I'm thinking of them and to keep moving forward, even when it's hard.
If you want to use these lunchbox notes, I'm sharing the free printable today. If you just like the quotes, you can find them, and more, shared daily on my Facebook page. After all, you need to be encouraged and lifted up just as much as your kids do!
