I've got 'Art'

.. And I am not really sure what to do with it. For now, it is on the fridge. But there have been 3 more pieces added since I took this picture...and it's getting a little full.
I am alright with having lots of stuff on my fridge. My mom never let us, I mean, we hung up our art, but she was really minimalist when it came to magnets & pictures. So I think I am over compensating by covering every square inch of mine. But seriously, what do I do with it once it's had it's turn on the fridge? I know I can't keep every piece but I can't imagine tossing any of it.

Miles started Nursery School this year. This is him on his 1st day of school. My sister-in-law took this picture & I love it. He looks so grown up. And he is. It breaks my heart.

And while we're on the topic of 'Miles' (aren't I always?), I have to mention his new obsession with Lego Mini Figures. I am using them like an allowance (or bribery). When he does a job, we earns money for a Lego man ($3.49 ea). He got two last week! He's been setting the table (I even let him carry the milk!!!), sorting recycling & playing with Molly. I wonder how long the Lego Man motivation will last?

My Mom hated getting rid of any item we had created ... so she let us. We would collect items from school etc all year long and they would go into a box and shut. We would start a new one the next year. At the end of the next year, we would go through the previous year's items to see what really needed to be kept and what could be sent to recycling. We would usually keep one piece from every class and a few interesting or favourite pieces. She would either scrapbook them or put them into some sort of album. It reduced the amount of clutter even though you would have two boxes per kid on the go. Interesting idea.
