Saving mementos!

Sammy_PreppieK_003So Sammy started Preppie-K over a week ago. I also started school and I'm remembering how much work it really is and I'm amazed at how tired I am after a full day of work!

He also starting bringing works of art to show me! My brain remembers reading on a blog by some BlogHER out there that takes pictures and/or scans the art that her kids do and then puts it in a digital book which she has printed (and there are so many good companies out there). So I did it, well, the scanning at least! I plan on making a digital scrapbook this year of our family’s doings and silly stories so this will be perfect and then if someone gets to them or spills on them or attacks them with scissors I won’t be totally sad, and I’ll still have the memory of what was important to him at school, like "playing with the action figures” during free time!

So glad you found my blog so I could find yours!

That drawing is just precious.

Allison, if you want, I am starting as a Heritage Makers Consultant, and we have awesome books. You can use premade templates and add the artwork, along with the story of it. And the great thing is you can start on it now, and work on it as the year progresses, that way you don't forget what the kids say about it. Let me know if you want more info.

I love this idea! i do the same thing with my boys' schoolwork. I snap a picture and then don't feel as bad when I toss it to be recycled...LOL until they find it and get upset!
