My friend, Katie, shared her dilemma about what to do with all the papers her son brings home from school. You know the ones. The beautiful works of art and weekly quizzes boasting 100% in red ink across the top. They invariably find a place of prominence on the refrigerator.
I have a confession.
I have most of my daughter’s graded school work, drawings another other ephemera in storage bins and drawers…she is in college now.
Relating to Katie’s struggle, I decided to pull out my daughter’s papers and create a “Schoolwork” junk journal and I am so glad I did. Now my treasured bits and pieces are gathered together and displayed on my shelf and I can flip through it anytime I wish, what’s more, I plan to share it with my daughter…one day.
