Isn't it a difficult tension? How do you keep the stacks of paper at bay and not regret having tossed a mother's day card that was lovely made by your four year old?
My oldest finished kindergarten this week. I didn't know what I would want to keep and what I wouldn't, so I saved everything. Yes, you did read that right. Everything. Every math worksheet that came home from school. Every craft. Every handwriting exercise. Everything. I diligently wrote the month and year at the bottom of the paper when I took it out of Daniel's folder and stuck it in a folder I picked up in Target's dollar section. Thank goodness they make them put their name on every sheet of paper.
Then I did the scariest thing ever, I recycled the entire stack of paper, six inches thick, in the recycle bin.
