grandparent journal

A couple weeks ago Dan was talking to an older couple at our church. They were telling Dan about a book of questions their grandkids sent them to fill out about their lives and return to them. They thought this was a great idea and so did Dan & I. What a neat way to record & remember memories from our parent's or grandparent's lives that we may not have otherwise known about.

Off I went searching on the internet for ideas to make our own books of questions to send our parents (for Jaxon to have down the road). I finally finished it tonight.

I was planning on posting the file for the journal I made in this post, but apparently you can't post files. So if any of you are interested in making your own, I wouldn't mind emailing it to you. Just leave a comment with your email address or email me at danandlauracollins@gmail.com and I'll send it to you.

  12. I've recently lost my beautiful Nephew all of the age of 31, leaving wife and two wonderful little children. I would love to give my family members a copy of your file so that we can all tell our stories so the children will never forget their father. Thank you and God Bless. les-kim@cfl.rr.com

  14. I find it completely ironic that I found your post exactly one year after you published it while looking for a journal to send to our parents for our little boy who's due in a few days. I was wondering if you still had the file you created and if you would still be willing to share.

    Best regard
