Holiday Mini-Book | With His Handwriting

The Boy Child surprised me by agreeing to my suggestion of making him a mini-book of the Christmas holidays.  A sort of Show and Tell that he can take to school, should he want to.
It's very simple.
Chipboard and acetate left over from Studio Calico's December Daily kit 2012.  Mini alphas from Basic Grey.  Patterned paper from a Studio Calico kit (I have no idea which one).  Journaling cards, 6x4, from Project Life (Kraft and Mayfield editions).
I began it this afternoon, sitting next to The Boy Child as he completed yet more homework.
What The Boy Child wasn't expecting was for me to get him to write the journaling, just one sentence per card.  It is, after all, about time that the fruits of our hard work are there, visible, in a mini-book for all to see.
He's written three sentences; only another 8-10 to go.

Yay for The Boy Child! Those are great sentences - full of information, interesting, not at all boring or ordinary.
I'm so pleased for him, that he will have this great souvenir of his Christmas.
He seems to have a fair bit of homework though...

Looking great and his sentences give the reader the opening to ask a question about the day. Well done.
