I just finished packing up the boxes of schoolwork for the last 6 years. (Well, three years were just moving from one shape of box to another.)
Why are so many things three-dimensional? His grade 2 year takes an entire box by itself.
Why can I throw out a tooth, but not two inches of spelling practice (the same five sheets every month, just different words)?
Why do the colourful things fade, run, ooze oil (plasticine), or some combination of the above?
Why don’t they come with dates? At least the month. Halloween stuff is pretty obvious, but I’ve got writing samples with no clue whatsoever.
Why were there a dozen pencils in his pencil case
Why didn’t I go through it all in the spring?
