by Roxanne Buchholz, Studio Creative Team Manager

What adventures did you have this summer? Did you head somewhere tropical or did you opt for a day at a magical theme park?

Many parents enroll their children in sports to build their child’s self-esteem – but to help your child get the most out of their sport, you need to be actively involved both on and off the field.

Did you know that when we take the time to elevate a memory, documenting it on a scrap page or in a storybook, to write down the words of that experience, we validate their importance as we cherish the memory over and over? The interactions kids have with teammates, coaches, officials, and parents shape how kids feel about themselves, so why not take the time to reinforce those special sports memories and important life lessons in one of the hundreds of sports-themed templates available through Heritage Makers. read more …
