When I was smaller, a recurrent summer vacation assignment was a summer journal. I probably was the only student in my class to be exited every time the shimmering new notebook was passed around. This was to become our personal project for the next few months, and I loved it.
Until the last day of vacation rolled around and I realized that I was about a month and a half late.
Anyways, last year, the idea resurged. I thought about doing a summer journal, although this time, it would be a bit different; less "diary entries" and more receipts, pictures, drawings, poems, etc..
This was last year's:
It says Summer in Spanish :)
This year, I'll be completing it on an acid-proof green moleskin to be able to paste pictures to it, and so that my memories last longer. As soon as Demeber 1st hits us I'll start working on it and, of course, uploading pictures!
Have you ever kept a summer journal?
