"lunchbox love-notes.."

Do ya'll remember my "pretty notes" post from last year. Well it has remained a tradition to write those to Priss & put them in her lunch everyday. I had a lot of chats/e-mails with friends that have started this too. Now with first grade comes much MORE prayer & careful consideration to her lunch like: picking a snack that can be consumed "quickly" & choosing a lunch that "looks yummy in a baggie". Both of which are HUGE to my 6 yr old!!!! Then comes the important stuff like: making sure that the note is in place..... I always pack it last, but I am thinking of it during the entire process. "What does she need to hear from me when I can't be with her?" I think to myself. Then it came to me- scripture!!! So I have started to pray over her little notes (cause I know that can't hurt). What a blessing these little lunchbox love-notes can be for our children!
I encourage ya'll to try this out!!!

"They even help on spelling tests Momma"- I hear....

(p.s. PINK polka dot napkins can't hurt either!!!!!)
