Is there away to save the toolpaths to each sheet in a nested project?

Yes, you need to use the Apply Template to All Sheets gadget - http://gadgets.vectric.com/apply_template.html

It has an option to generate and save the toolpaths for all the sheets at once.

Can you explain the what it is you're doing now and how you would like it to work.

The gadget will only apply the toolpaths that are relevant to the vectors on the sheet provided the template has been properly setup.

I make a few of these and each time I get wood to make them the sizes change, what I would like is to make the changes to each sheet and it's toolpaths, Right now I have to delete each toolpath and redo them for each sheet every time I need to make a change or I forget something on it.

The Attached file is the job I am working on.

Are you using layers with associated toolpath templates? It sounds like you're probably not. If you have the job set up that way you can re-nest and press the recalculate all button to automatically calculate the toolpaths.
