Letters To Your Children

Get a journal for each member of your family. Every once in a while, write in the journal as if you are writing them a letter. Share your thoughts on their life and your family. This is a great way to leave a legacy of your child’s first years for them to read when they are old enough. Tape photos and other memories inside for a scrapbook type feel too.
