Cafe Binder ... Check!

It was a shopping night tonight.  Tomorrow is my kids' last day of school and daycare, so out we went for appreciation gifts.  It started out as a family affair, but then my middle girl decided to have a full-out meltdown in the first store.  Welcome to my life!  It ended up alright, though.  I went back out with just my oldest, and we had a great time shopping together - she even managed to talk me into a few impulse buys (OK - maybe more than a few).  We're ready now - bring on the last day - presents are chosen, and cards are written.  And each teacher, E.A., and daycare provider truly DESERVES our appreciation.  My girls are truly blessed with wonderful adults in their lives.

Remember those impulse buys I mentioned???  I found the first one in the first store (yes, even though we were in the midst of the now infamous meltdown).  I've just finished The Daily 5 and The Cafe Book, and am starting to sort through how I'm going to set it all up.  And now I'm one step closer.  The Cafe Book recommends keeping one (cute) binder for all your language notes, assessments, conferences, etc.  Okay, maybe it didn't say 'cute', but that's how I read it.  Well, look what I found:
Oh my goodness - isn't it just the CUTEST?!?  Matching binder, duotang, notebook, AND dividers!  LOVE IT!  I can't wait to start filling this baby up ... and the motivation of THE perfect binder is all it took!

  6. Thanks, ladies. I got the binder and all the matching accessories at Staples - which is the Canadian equivalent of Office Max, I believe.
