Wrapping up our School Year!

My complicated method of storing records:  pop an occasional worksheet or writing sample into a three-ring binder.  When the school year is over, use yarn and an oversized needle, and thread through the holes.  Tie the ends so you have a little "book."  It doesn't have to be super-durable, as it's just "proof you did something this school year" and not an item for the National Archives.
Emperor's packet was stacked on Woodjie and Rose's packet, and a few science workbooks were thrown in the middle somewhere. 
Now it's all tied together like a package and labelled.  School year is finished.  Ta-da!  I have a ton of these in the basement.    I don't know who would ever want records or proof that Elf and Emperor did their work in 2006, but it's all in the basement "just in case."  It feels good to have it all squared away and in a safe place.

  1. It's as good a method as any other and at least you are keeping stuff. The kids might enjoy looking through them when they are older.

    1. Some of it is pretty cute! Other stuff is sorta boring and is doomed for recycling in 2030. :)

  2. Reminds me of a lawyers office with everything tired up with pink ribbons.

    1. I don't have that many papers though... just like 'em bundled and out of the way! :)

  3. What a clever way to keep them all together. I wish I had a basement for storing stuff. New Zealand homes do not have basements. Some sort of regulation means we are not allowed them.

    1. Very strange! I wonder why? Radon? Here we have tornadoes. We'd better have basements.
