I have been working on making some Summer Discovery Journals for the kids, and it is finally coming together.
I've included a few Bible verses to look up and a few to memorize, trying new foods, plants to press, games to play, toys to re-discover, insects to study, playgrounds to explore, road trip fun, vocabulary words and more.

Discovering new things about God's wonderful world is always fun, so I do hope the children enjoy this. As an incentive, I am offering my kids a $10 gift certificate to their favorite toy shop for completing their journals.
