I notice that when I sit and use my Mommy Journal my two youngest will sit quietly completing theirs too!
My prayer for them is that even though their journal is for school that they’ll eventually turn them into keepsakes or add their special touch an make memories.
Something I have started to add to my mommy journal is quotes and scriptures on the border of my pages.
I pray my children will take the time to do this to their journals. Even if they only write one or two words.
I started adding the date to my pages because I don’t always complete them in order. For instance the reading page may take me all week to complete.
And even after I will come back and add color to it.
It is rare that I complete one page a day. I’m usually working on several. I may add something to one of the boxes then go to another and add to it.
See the square? It’s only half colored. I’ll finish it, just not today.
This page shows that I ate gmo’s, ack! Yes, it was a high carb day. We were out running errands all day. What I plan to do with these pages is add some notes about what we did that day too. You know me, making every page count and have a memory I don’t want to forget.
This page took me several days to complete. I’d sit and add a few colors, sit again and add more. And actually it’s still not done, I see some spaces that need color.
I can’t draw beyond stick figures but I don’t let it stop me from enjoying my Mommy Journal. I can write, color, and doodle.
And my penmanship is not pretty but I continue anyway because I want my kiddos to see that mama uses her journal too.
I love adding what is happening that day, whether it’s just a few words, verse, song, or smiley face. I also love writing what is important to me and my priorities. Before using my Homeschooling Handbook for Moms, I didn't do that.
If you live right, chances are your children will too. But teach them everything. What you don't teach them someone else will-and you might not like those lessons.-The Delany Sisters
