We did it! Today I went to Target and got boxes for both Kai and Noah to put their 2010 -2011 school papers in. The boxes are not that big and I told the boys that whatever won't fit we will have to find another place for... not our home! :)
I thought for sure there would be many tears but we had none! Kai and Noah picked through their pile (Kai had TONS of papers) very seriously. They kept about 1/3 of the pile and put it into a nice box. My favorite part is that boy boys wrote their name on the box with a sharpie marker! It will be so fun to remember how they wrote their name each year! They are very proud of their box and enjoy looking though it and talking about each paper or art work! It all took about 45 min and now my counter is all cleared off of school file folders! Happy mommy!
