When I heard about The Next Chapter’s project to work through Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal, I knew I wanted to do it. I also knew I needed to take the boys on this journey with me. So I purchased a book for Josh and Ian.
I plan to make a journal for Macs by writing down the prompts that he can do, and allowing him to play with us that way. I even broke down and bought Macs his own copy. I’ve been really excited about the boy’s having their very own copies of the book. I just knew that this book is a book for them. I was so right. Josh opened his journal, and promptly asked if he could start NOW. Of course I said yes, and he turned to the page that says “pour, spill, drip, spit, spill your coffee here.”
ALL OVER IT.
And that is why I love that boy. He never once asked WHY I would want to take a book and “ruin” it. Instead, he read the first page of the book, and wanted to jump right in with me. Ian is ready too. Ready to let loose and forget the “rules” and just enjoy a process.
And we’ll do it together. Here on this blog, along with many many others who are taking part in this adventure…
And I’m doing it with my boys. This book was MADE to be worked on with kids. And I decided that my kids were totally worth the price of their OWN original books.
