I am nerdy.
Who else would take a photoshoot of their daughter's binder on the last day of school??
But I'm telling you, in my mind this baby is a piece of art.
Especially in all those bulging out notes from friends stuffed in the front cover:
last year :)
She carried that thing along with all these other notebooks around in her backpack all year long.
That binder helped her get good grades.
When school gets out, we sit down and go through the mountains of school work the kids have lugged home.
We toss most of it out after fully soaking in how sweet/cute/great it is. We take pictures of some things before we get rid of them.
There's one hanging file for each year of school up through high school.
Then hopefully they'll take that thing with them when they move away.
And some day they'll sit with their kids when they come home from school and check out how they used to write, draw, etc.
I love to bottle up time, and this is one of the best ways I know how.
(More details about this kind of filing system last year back here.)
