Easy School Memory Binders...

It has been a long time since I have blogged...
Yard projects have CONSUMED us this summer!
Our side yard turned backyard project is almost done!
Hopefully I'll get to post about that soon.

Today was a rainy day, so I was finally able to get around to organizing all of the
"end of the year" school papers.
I have a really hard time with scrapbooking, there is never enough time!
I have three kids in school now, so this is an easy system that works for me.  
By the time they graduate, at least we'll have their class picture, report cards & special awards organized!

I started by getting each kid their own 3-ring binder...
 Each school year I order them a class picture...
 Then I place them in page protectors.  
On one side I put the class picture & on the back side I put their end of the year report card.
 Then I place all of their awards or special papers for each year behind that.
 Voila!  Organized!

My daughter just finished 6th grade so we have K-6 organized this way.
It's so fun to look back & see how she has changed.
Now it's on to Jr. High!
 I also store all of their other special projects or art work in a clear storage box.
So they'll each have 3 binders & a big storage box of all of their school memories when they graduate!
How do you store all of your kids' school papers?
