Journaling As a Family

This summer, since I have two prolific writers, and one who thinks she is- we are initiating journal writing time after our evening quiet reading time.

We began with just cheapy black & white memo/journal notebooks & the kids put a collage of magazine cut-outs & stickers on the covers. It will be nice for them to look back and see what they were interested in.

Everyone, even mom, did a journal entry tonight- the first Sunday of the first week out of school- to kick things off.
