Next up in the continuing kindergarten memory book project:
step # 2: crop it.
If it doesn't fit neatly into that box, it won't fit into any sort of assembled book. Not that you will use everything, mind you, but if you crop this stuff as you go along it's a lot less work later on. A little bit here, a little bit there - keeps it managable in the spring to pull it all together.
Even though I'm considering a tall, narrow book I'm not cropping anything to smaller than 8.5 x 11. I've been known to change my mind and don't want things to be too small if that should happen this time.
Also, I took down a few more notes about school. Specifically, Joanie is not a fan of the uniform socks. Each morning it's a struggle. Remember, it's okay to document the little things that may seem unpleasant now, but she'll remember that with a laugh when she's grown. Another big deal at school is the chocolate milk. I never let her have that at home and this is a real treat.
Okay, keep taking those notes. It will pay off in a truly personal keepsake for your child.
