Hello! It's Jennifer Larson, with something new I am trying out to share the burden of journaling.
My boys recently went to sleepaway camp for the first time, a Bible Camp in Wisconsin. I ugly cried after I dropped them off, and when I picked them up, they saw me as soon as I parked and ran over to hug me. It was quite a reunion. This picture is the drop off:
The boys could not stop talking about how wonderful the week was.I had a few pictures--from the drop off and pick up, a few from our church youth director, and some online from the camp that we could order--so I decided to scrap it, but I struggled with the journaling, for an obvious reason: I wasn't there.
Both boys asked me to make a page for their album, so when we got home, I handed each boy a piece of paper and asked them to write their favorites. (This is a family tradition for vacation, so they're used to reflecting like this.) Here's what they did (ignore the handwriting, plus the fact that I gave them note paper from a brew pup. Gah.):
I may post the lists on the page, or I may type them with more detail I glean from the boys later. I'm not sure yet, but I'm glad I asked another person to journal for me. This is something I don't do often enough and will have to do more often!
