school snacks

I have a four year old son who is the sweetest can be. He brings me laughter and joy, and I feel so blessed that God has assigned me to be his mother. Don’t get me wrong, he has his moments. Like this morning, when I actually had to spoon-feed him his cereal because he has a hate-relationship with milk. That’s a whole another story that I’ll get into later. But what he does love is snacks, I mean who doesn’t (grown-ups included)? I get a few opportunities a year to bring healthy snacks for his preschool. I can’t wait until the school year to start in the fall, not because, ahem, I’ll get some “me” time back, but because of the snacks and other goodies I get to make for his class. Here are a few things I made in the past year.
