Household Hint: Preserving Memories--School Art

It's the end of the school year once again.  My son, Caleb finished up 4th grade. The last week of school he brought home armloads of artwork and projects from the year. Sure, we're saving some of it, but we're moving soon and we're doing the pre-move purge. As much as we like them, the 2 1/2 ft long fish with glitter and the "parade float" made from a shoebox and Legos must go. The memories can be preserved with photos. We went outside this morning and snapped photos of him with his artwork. Now that we have lasting documentation he's happy to let some of them go. Later we'll scan some of his schoolwork papers and save them as files on the computer.


  1. That's a good idea, although I'd take the legos off the float and save those.

  2. Great idea! Noah is just finishing 4th grade also. Caleb is so so adorable.
    I would definitely save the legos unless they are glued together.
    God Bless!

  3. We definitely intend to save the Legos--never fear. Caleb would not part with them.
