April 30

This is the last day of the 2017 IFJM journal.  I enjoyed being a 10 year-old, just as I knew I would.
This page was dedicated to my daughter, Karen, who ran her first marathon today.  I hope there were some smiling kids giving out water for her and her fellow runners.

I did the tulip page with my 3 year old granddaughter, Mary, hanging on to my legs, borrowing my markers, and asking a lot of "why" questions.  ☺

Day 10

The first time I saw that Giant Blue Whale, I was about 4 or 5 years old.  It was the thing I remembered most from my museum visits.  So, of course, my young alter-ego would find it fascinating too.

Day 2

I just noticed that I already missed the detail that "yesterday" was Saturday, so Miss Jones would not have seen any misspellings yet.

Day 1 - A Big Step Back in Time - IFJM 2017

I just turned 72 a few days ago - but I've been known to say that I haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up yet.  Everyone laughs, but I'm not so sure that I'm joking.  So for IFJM this year, I'm becoming a 10-year-old.  I've noticed that my grandkids prefer using markers to the crayons that I grew up with, so (details) my medium will be markers, although who knows, maybe Crayolas will make an occasional appearance too.  I'm using a Strathmore Visual Journal.  My first choice was a typical lined student notebook (details), but it seems that markers leak through too much to the next page, and even as a 10-year-old I wouldn't have liked that.

Okay, let's play!
