I need your help, Internets
The big thing this year for My Kid's school is they're not allowed to carry around their backpacks. They say they're trying to teach the kids "organization" by making them use a binder to carry everything. I'm not sure if that's entirely true, but I'm not going to argue it.
Anyway, we bought one of those big binders from Office Depot with pockets and dividers etc. as instructed. And it has lasted ONE MONTH. He's been in school since Aug. 7 and the damn thing is falling apart already. The rings don't stay closed and all his stuff falls out.
Can someone recommend a brand or a place to shop for a good, heavy-duty school binder?
Also, have any of ya'll's kids read the Whangdoodle book? He's telling me his friends are recommending it so I'm wondering if it's the next "Because of Winn Dixie." I'm a little confused because it's written by Julie Andrews (yes, THAT Julie Andrews) but when I was looking for it online, I accidentally came across a different use of the word.
