Found these journals.... Decided it was a great idea that my kids would SO dig. With school having just started there were no black notebooks to be found, but I did find these cute little books at Target and they even come with a pen. Can't wait to start. Such a great way to bond with the kids and perhaps find out things I wouldn't normally hear about. Samantha will be a little challenging, since she can't read but I bet Kristen will help her out.
Thanks for all the great ideas out there!
