School is out!
I love the summer months,
My little guy finished kindergarten. That means that next year he will be in school full time.
(Kindergarten is only 2 1/2 hours long here.)
I am happy for him, but I am sad for me.
I will really miss having a little buddy with me all day.
And he really is so fun to hang out with.
I welcomed the kids home on their last day with a banner over the door and pizza.
Lots of pizza.
We went through all of their stuff and I began to organize.
This is my school work organizing system.
When they bring home stuff we want to keep we pile it all in a set of drawers.
I keep ticket stubs, scouting awards, report cards, student awards and student write ups ;-)
Everything goes in their drawer.
If they have a project that is too big to fit,
I take a picture of it and the picture is kept instead of an enormous project.
I have a drawer too ;-) I keep christmas cards, notes, cards, drawings etc. in mine.
At the end of the school year I put all we have saved from that year in a file and stuff it into a file box.
The file box is full. I really don't think it can hold another sheet of paper.
I'll probably remember to buy another one next year when school is out.
But this is the easiest way I've found to keep their things.
Maybe someday I will put all of this in sleeves and organize it in a binder....
But even if someday never comes at least we have it all together.
Now I need to figure out how to keep us all fed and happy for the next 3 months.
