Oldest son: "Mom, do we have a sketch book with no pictures?"
Mom: "I think you have a sketch book on the shelf with very few pictures."
Son searches for sketch book on shelf. Finds it. Rips out the pictures & gifts them to mom. In a flurry of focused activity, the "Journal" is created. A day spent at youngest son's preschool carnival is documented fondly.
