Wreck This Journal: Week Five

Two days. It took my journal two days to dry out in the hot South Texas sun, and by the time it was dry, it was time to leave for our family vacation.


I took the journal with me but it rarely saw the light of day. So, I left a memento in the bed at the hotel


and when we got home, we brought the journal out to play.

  1. The little one is so funny - everytime it comes around, it gets a little kick or dirt smudge - some extra little wrecking treat.

    Aren't you people afraid to encourage your kids to wreck your stuff? Aren't you supposed to be training them the opposite, lol?

  2. I left it over to my daughter to deal with the destructive page in my journal, but she refuses. "No it's too beautiful" she says. So she only painted some things in it.
    It's fun to see, that other kids aren't so peculiar about it. *smile*

  8. That was great! I bet they had so much fun. My grand son watched this with me and I gave him my extra copy so now we will have family wreckage together. This is my fist week . See ya next week.

  9. "Oh my, what's this person left in the bed for me to clean up? Hmm, 'lose this page', what kind of a crazy person has been sleeping in this bed? But then again... maybe I could lose this page too, perhaps I'll take it to the beach or shopping..."
    And the page begins the next stage of its journey. Where will it go next? Who will it meet? Tune in to find out...

  13. Ha! Cool!

    Kids are still so free, haven't internalzed that voice that we grown-ups have, "Be careful. Don't mess it up. Don't break it. Stay clean." The journal is a cool way to silence those voices!

  16. First off, you have such a cute voice and laugh!

    Great wreckage--isn't it nice how the family gets involved?!

    I had a painting adventure (that sounds more exciting than it was--I'm talking room painting) this weekend and totally didn't post (though I DID get paint on the journal)--I'll combine this week's and next together on Friday...
