If you follow the blog then you may have noticed our Summer Bucket List posts. We have had so much fun already this summer and we have had so many adventures. I really wanted to give my daughter and outlet to write them all down. I don’t know about any other parents but it kinda breaks my heart when I spend so much time and energy to put together a fun event and a year later the kids can’t remember it at all. I have found that writing in journals has really helped to keep the memory longer for my daughter. So I went on the search for a Summer Journal and found a really great one at The Victoria Chart Company. We are also working on getting our Summer routine down, not having school every day has really thrown off our schedule. The Victoria Chart Company had a super cute chore chart that I picked up to try to remind the kids what needs to be completed each day.
I love this summer journal. It’s so cute and a great way to get the kids writing and being creative. My daughter loves to draw, write, and color so this was perfect for her. We have included all of our major activities from our bucket list so she can write down what she loved about each event. There is plenty of pages for lots of memories. They have included writing prompts and space for all the great details. She can even draw pictures and color the pages.
I love how interactive it is and how it makes them use their creative writing skills. It’s a great way to keep them engaged and thinking. Plus it becomes a wonderful keepsake written in their own handwriting and filled with their drawings. I love these sort of things and keep them all so I can pull them out when they grow up to show them how adorable they were.

I am in love with their Motivational and Responsibility Chart. My 8-year-old has been struggling with the new summer schedule so I wanted to give her a chart that she could use to stay on track of her daily tasks. They have included all the important tasks including getting dressed, healthy eating, chores, and more. There is space to mark each day off as they complete the tasks, they even include a dry erase marker. When the new week starts just erase the marker and start over. The bottom section is all about rewards. You can set up rewards based on how many tasks they complete. I fill my daughter’s with little rewards like having a snack she likes, going to the pool, etc.
It has worked really well for us. She knows what she needs to accomplish each day and has a lot of fun marking of each task. The rewards really help as well. I have it hung up in her room on the back of her bedroom door so she can easily see it and reach it to mark each task. It’s a great way to stay organized in the summer time.
