Journal prompt: Did you walk to school? Ride a bike? Carpool? Ride the school bus?
I grew up in a small town and my schools weren’t very far away at all – so I walked. We didn’t have a middle school/junior high – we just had the elementary school (Grades K-6) and the high school (Grades 7-12). The elementary school was just across town – only took me probably 5-10 minutes to walk there and the high school was even closer than that – happened to be right next door from my house. I loved that I only had to get up 15 minutes before getting to school. It never took me long to get ready and that really worked for me – since I was (and still am) a night owl and not a morning person!
Each Tuesday, I am going to be offering prompts or ideas. If you don’t write in your journal regularly – I am going to encourage you to write just ONCE A WEEK and answer the question/idea that I give on Tuesdays. These ideas hopefully will spark a memory and you will be able to capture that in what you write/record so that it can be left for your children/grandchildren/family/friends. Give as much detail as you can when answering.
Will you do this for me? Will you do this for your families? You can write it down in a journal, you can type it up on a computer or journaling software, you can take a recorder and talk, you can videotape your answers, you can even scrap a page with the journaling. It doesn’t matter how you do this – it’s just important that you do it. The memories, the dates, the information is the only real thing we can leave to our families when we are gone.
