The other day I was trying to convince my kids that journal-writing is fun. (I'm trying to get them to write more consistently.)
So I pulled out my journal arsenal:Boy howdy did I ever love writing when I was young.
I pulled out a few specific journals and we read a little together. Oh man I'm so thankful to have those memories in writing (at least most of them...some had me rolling my eyes). We read a little about how I fell in love with their Dad.
I showed them how I kept all kinds of things from trips growing up. Everything from tickets to castles in France to my straw wrapper from Taco Bell.
It worked: they were enthralled.
They sat right down and started writing up a storm. Claire taped in her reading flash cards. Grace taped in some things from our Mom/daughter over-nighter a couple weeks ago.
Elle has turned more to the blog kind of journal-writing. (Check out her latest photo shoot here.)
Now if we can just keep the journal stuff going...
I love journals.
