Homemade Note Pads

Blame it on my Oregon (re-use, re-purpose, respect the environment) Roots, I can't seem to simply recycle all of the paper sent home from L and T's school.  Instead, I fold it into fourths and use the blank backside as a notepad.  I tuck the folded pages in with some pens and pencils so they're easily accessible.

When I need to make a note of something I pull a folded page from the front to write it down.
Back in August I wrote down this little conversation with Lauren.
"Momma, you know about black widow spiders?
After they marry and mate, they kill their spouse."

I thought this was cute and funny and thought I might blog about it.
I never did so back into my notepad stash it went.

Two months later, in October, Lauren was struggling with her spelling word "enthusiastically."  We went over it extensively during the day and right before bedtime I wanted her to spell it again so I pulled out a sheet from my notepad stash and had her write it down.

I'm very happy I didn't blog about her first comment about black widow spiders because adding her spelling word "enthusiastically" makes it so much better.

lol lol lol lol lol 
or for the older crowd
