Well, it seems as though his laptop lunchbox is for sure MIA. I went up to the school today and peeked around, checked lost and found, etc. It was nowhere to be found.
SO, we go back to how we began the year when only my daughter had the laptop lunchbox. He uses the laptop inner containers, packed in an L.L. bean lunch bag which he had previously. I am going to wait and see if it still turns up or not before I do anything differently.
I'm not terribly upset with him. The kids go outside for recess right after lunch and set their lunchboxes on a table or a bench. In his class, only about 4 or 5 kids bring a lunch, so I can see how it would be easy to leave it outside after lunch, especially when all of your friends walk right past that area without stopping.
