Lunches Sept. 15th - 18th

I have had laryngitis and was told by my doctor not to talk or whisper for several days this week. That made bedtime books a bit tricky. Luckily, we have a few books on tape at home. My husband read with Boogs a couple of night this week.

Boogs and I listened to My Dog Never Says Please by Suzanne Williams one night this week.
 Ginny Mae feels like she is being treated unfairly by her parents and brother. She noticed what an easy life her dog, Ol' Red, has.  Ol' Red can go barefoot outside, does not have to show manners when he eats, he doesn't have to clean up his doghouse. Ginny Mae gets so upset with her family she decides she would rather live with her dog. Soon, she joins Ol' Red in the doghouse. She quickly discovers that dogs have fleas, have to be outside during rainstorms, get lonely, and have boring food.

In the Laptop Lunchbox: strawberries, broccoli trees, doggy kibble almonds, rawhide chew  banana chips, pretzel sticks for fetching, chocolate chip zucchini muffin Ginny Mae, and ham & cheese Ol' Red.

We finished reading Floors by Patrick Carmen.
Boogs really enjoyed this book. Leo, the son of the maintenance man at the Whippet Hotel, worked very hard to save the hotel after Mr. Whippet disappeared. He followed clues and conquered the crazy obstacles set in his way. The lunch on top shows the part of the book where Leo rides a roller coaster to retrieve a special ring. Blop the robot gets lost during this task.

In the Laptop Lunchbox: salad, blueberries, salami & cheese robot, pretzel ring, nutella roller coaster car sandwich, and dried apricots.

By the end of the book, Leo manages to save the day.  This simple lunch shows the deed for the Whippet Hotel on top of pb&j sandwich, Pirates Booty, carrots with hummus, and plum slices. We have already checked out the second book in the series but are having to wait until my voice comes back before we can read it.

 Lunch in an ELB lunchbox: salad, cutie oranges, macadamia nuts, yogurt, Hawaiian roll, and ham.
