I have a fun way of preserving your summertime memories to share with you today. I bought an inexpensive jigsaw puzzle. I printed out an equal number of photos as their were pieces of the puzzle. I laid a puzzle piece on a photo and then traced around it with a pen. I then cut out the picture and glued it to the puzzle piece. I did this with each photo and puzzle piece. Now they have a fun puzzle of summer memories. I am thinking about Mod-podging it to make it more durable.

"We all know the natural conditions under which a child should live; how he shares household ways with his mother, romps with his father, is teased by his brothers and petted by his sisters; is taught by his tumbles; learns self-denial by the baby's needs, the delightfulness of furniture by playing at battle and siege with sofa and table; learns veneration for the old by the visits of his great-grandmother; how to live with his equals by the chums he gathers round him; learns intimacy with animals from his dog and cat; delight in the fields where the buttercups grow and greater delight in the blackberry hedges." -Charlotte Mason
