Another item checked off of the Pinterest list!!!

Way to go me!  I did it.  I actually followed through with putting together another one of my pins.  This one I am pretty excited about.  Although I am thinking that the hard part is all ahead of me.

I saw this idea and fell in love.  I love the thought of having a place to put all of those special papers rather than them making a home in my car, or in that special place on my kitchen counter that everything seems to migrate to.  I had been storing them in the baby book but it was getting kind of full and I really wanted something that could grow with them. I love the idea of having a place to put their school portrait and I also printed out some lined paper so we can do a handwriting sample at the beginning of the year and again at the end.
I initially found the idea on Pinterest of course but the original idea can be found here I Heart Organizing  She has all of the templates you need to put together your folders and step by step directions.
Now, the next step is doing the back work.  :( I need to round up 5x7's of their school pictures for the last couple of years and find all of those loose papers that I want to file away.
I'm not sure how much use the older grades will get, but I had to put them in there just in case.
