Or maybe it isn’t.
Because even though the rest of the nation seems to have headed back to the world of brown bagging it…
Parker and I have not.
We have spent the past few days vacationing with friends on the coast of Maine.
Today, we are spending the day lost in needlessly violent water “wars” — which involves the throwing of car sponges at one another (and a good friend) at the lake.
We also have made ample time for much-too-large ice creams.
And really good beers on the dock.
Tomorrow we will tackle back-to-school shopping.
On Friday…. More water fun.
This weekend? More of the same.
Monday? I suppose we finally will head home and acknowledge the reality of fifth grade crashing down upon us.
And Tuesday? Back to the lunch box trenches.
I also finally will share the results of the kitchen renovation that required far too much of my attention this summer. I’m thrilled with the results, even if the process wasn’t always thrilling.
Until then… Get your gear on. Get inspired. Get back into the lunch groove.
