Over the past first month of his first ever school year, I have been inundated with a daily insurgence of the mandatory ADORABLE ARTWORK a'la Sam Hayden. Mixed into this precious mix is scattered the homework that we all have helped him with and he is SO PROUD of.
So, my quandary is the following: What to keep and what to ditch?
After placing all of my sons' hard work upon my kitchen table:
I set to work making piles
MOST of his schoolwork (cute, but certainly not heartwarming) that will be trashed~
Calendars, Newsletters, Etc. for the month to KEEP as reminders of the events that transpired
Finally, the last pile:
THE ARTWORK! Here are just a FEW examples, with captions.
Bear with me, it is my boys' handiwork of which I coo!
"My family is the blue guys, and Eben's family is the green guys"
I especially love how they have no torsos, just heads with arms and legs a' kimbo!
"My bus, and George is driving it!"
A Babar hand puppet, need I say more?
They were learning about animal tracks...how fitting...ANIMALS!!!!
A beaver for the "B" week. I love the teeth!
This is supposed to be Sam, but I think it bears a large resemblance to my father "Poppy"
Thanks for looking ladies ~ you rock!
