I did a school project with my fifth grade twins this weekend that made me want to share my story!  The project was to make a timeline of the books that were special to them from birth to age 10.  Wow, right?!  Well, it was like looking through a photo album... so many happy memories were conjured up during our trips down memory lane - bedtime reads, books read by the fireplace or at the beach, special series where we would go and get the newest edition on its' release date.  Occasionally, we hit a road block and had to really tax our brains to remember at what age we did what, but what fun we had in the process.  Sooo, while you keep your children's journals, why not jot down their/your favorite books or book series occassionally?  It's another special bond we have with our kids.
