We are also using the workbox system and it's worked well so far.

Sounds like you have a great line up ready for the week.

Thanks. This will be our third week with workboxes.

We love paper dolls so we have quite a collection and we just picked up a set that we printed off the internet a couple of weeks ago that my younger dd is working on coloring.
