Journal


Last year we started writing in a journal with my then 4 year old daughter. She would dictate what she wanted us to write. It's so cute that she can now start to form words into a sentence by herself. So she writes a few lines herself and then I write the rest for her. The last thing she had me write last night was "I can jump." It was so random that my hubby and I couldn't help but laugh.

I bought a cheap book at the dollar store for her to use. Yesterday I noticed the pages were falling out and so I decided I needed to make her a journal. I used the sketch over at the WofJ Challenge for the cover.

This week OCC wants to see a project inspired by a journal. SS wants to see a school themed project-aka reading. SSS wants to see Red & Green.

Hope you all had a nice Monday!
