Michael started his first day of first grade today. What a difference from kindergarten! When we walked into his classroom, it was quiet and he had to go right to his seat. Last year it was a little more carefree. I guess it's time for REAL school now. We prayed for Michael to be respectful and Christ-like to everyone he is around. I have prayed for him to "hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6)."
Lauren was thinking she would be starting school today, too. She kept saying, "Hurry mom, I don't want to be late for school! My teacher will be so mad!" It was so funny. She really wants to go to school. She won't be four until January so she will have to wait until next year.
Well, I fixed a fun lunch today. I am posting a pic along with the photos of Michael's first day.
Fruity Chicken Tuna Pasta Salad
2 cans of tuna drained
1 Chicken breast, chopped or shredded
3/4 C Mayo ( I use mayo with canola oil for a healthier version)
1 small can chopped pineapple
1/3 C dried cranberries
1/4 chopped walnuts
1/4 chopped yellow onion or green onion
1 package of Rotini cooked and rinsed with cold water (Barilla Plus is healthier)
1/2 tsp poppy seeds, added right before serving
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix, chill and serve. Delicious!!!
