Show and Tell

So you never know when your handy dandy scrapbooks are going to come in handy!

My soon to be 13 year old son has to do show and tell for English (he goes to a French school), so even though he is in grade 7, they do show and tell as a way to help grade their English...anyway...he himmed and hawwed over what he was going to do for S&T and couldn't come up with anything good, so I suggested he bring in his school years scrapbook. I started this book when he was in kindergarden and when scrapbook swaps were all the rage!! So he is going to talk about the content of the layouts, let the class have a look at all of the old class pics and such and basically talk about how much they have all grown and how they have been a part of each other's daily lives for so long. He thinks they will all get a kick out of how much they have all changed and grown. He's really excited about doing his S&T now.

So you never know when your scrapbooks are going to come in handy!!


  1. Denise, this is fantastic! This is what scrapbooking is all about and knowing that the kids will be walking down memory lane must really make you feel good!

  2. It does! But on the other hand makes me kind of sad to know that my kids are growing so fast! I have to force myself not to dwell on it so much. :)
