Ninety One Days of Summer

My boys are out of school for the summer.  They get exactly 13 weeks for summer vacation.  This year, we decided that each of them would journal everyday throughout the break to keep track of what they did. (It also keeps their writing skills from degenerating over the long break!).  So I thought what a great idea for me, too - a small scrapbook page for each of the 91 days until they go back to school.  Anyone want to play along?  Day One was baseball games, Day Two was football tryouts, and Day Three was gardening and cleaning the pond. (Don't you love my little croaking friend?).,
I'll take a photograph, journal a half page or so and make a simple 8 1/2 " x  11"  page to to keep it all together.  That's the plan any way!
Hope your summer is off to a terrific start - we have 12+ weeks to go!!

Great idea! I think I will give it a try...of course I still have not been successful on my attempt to take one picture a day for an entire year...Sooooo, I will add the caveat that I may not get the picture...and can use ephemera on the page instead. My kids are still in I start next week! Question: If I spend the day scrapbooking, can I create a page about creating a page? ;)

Hope your summer journal is progressing. The hardest part for me is remembering to stop and take a photo, even one, while trying to keep up with the day's pace. But I think it would be so fun to have that cumulative record.
