While the cat's away...

So as I've been starting to get back into a baseball card and blog cycle, now and then I've been picking up binders from the shelf and pondering them. I came upon one today that did not look familiar and realized it was one that our daughter Lucy has been putting together on her own. And my, this kid likes to categorize.

So there are pages throughout the binder with a sticky illustrating what the page represents. This one is the catch-all "different expressions,"
which must mean when you are ten, it's no longer absolutely necessary for everyone to be smiling. There are many other categories, such as "down,"
representing players with their heads down.
I pulled out one more page, which is, symmetrically enough, "up," which denotes guess what?:

players with their heads kind of tilted up.
Which makes sense, eh? It's comforting to know at least someone around here is organized.

PS Ice, dangerous cold, and insanely difficult driving are making life a little complicated here. We hope you are somewhere warm.

Awesome post. Neat diagrams. My Fred does something totally different with her cards, no diagram necessary!! (http://dawgbonesaphilliesphan.blogspot.com/2011/01/quick-wally-world-update-pack.html) Sorry to hear about the weather, I won't tell you it's supposed to be in the 70's here in the Old Dominion tomorrow!
Stay warm, wherever in the world you may be! Love the squished pennies too!

If only us adults (my wife may disagree with my being in that category)could look at, and see the simple things in life like a child does.

Save those and keep the pages just like that. You'll be amazed that those will be some of your favorite cards years from now.

Genious way to catagorize. Sorting by teams or sets is so boooorrriing.

I love how it looks like she drew the thought bubbles first, then wrote in them. I used to do that too. haha

Sweet pages! The different expressions were my fav... I almost feel guilty, but I had to put the AC on today...

These pages have inspired two new mini-collection ideas: Cards with all-grass background, and cards with all-dirt backgrounds. Paying more attention to the pictures and poses, and less attention to the players and personalities.

Awesome! She's given me some new ideas!
