We put the journals together and all went outside with our heads full of ideas for our pages. One wanted a leaf taped on to a page, another found a caterpillar and drew a fantastic picture of it and another was busy making "letters" while the other was tracing blades of grass. It is so much easier to feel an at-ease of control when little minds aren't focusing on being wild... which is ok sometimes too. I like for the kids to be themselves here while also trying to help them find themselves creatively. By nap time one of the boys wanted to sleep with his journal... awww... I didn't let him.
I loved this little project and loved watching their minds wrap around the pages outside. They are all growing up so fast and I have the pleasure of watching them do so.
