August Journal Prompts that are family friendly

August Journal Prompts

Happy August! Summer is quickly coming to an end and while we have had a wonderful time traveling and exploring our state, we are ready to get back into our regular routine – especially our family journaling project!

The start of the school year is bittersweet for this Momma. It’s my oldest son’s senior year so I know it’s going to fly by no matter how much I want to slow things down. My bonus daughter is starting her freshman year of college this month and our youngest two are headed to first and fifth grade. Whew! It’s going to be a year of milestones for each of them. 

Our journaling project is a great way to document all of the great things and connect and communicate on subjects we may not always talk about.
