lack of time, summer holidays and trying out art journaling

well its the summer holidays here, so very little crafting done except a wedding memory box I was  asked to do (won't show that till after the wedding). The summer holiday are always a struggle as I need to keep a 5yr old entertained, plus  run the house and go to work.
I have booked swimming lessons for him in the last week of the holidays, going to the park. weather permitting and play dates, so that leaves very little time to craft. Also I'm going away the first weekend in September with some crafty friends so I need to get layouts organised and crop bag sorted, photos printed.
Any way I have attempted to do some art journaling when we went away in the motor home at the beginning of the holidays I packed a bag of stamps, watercolour card, brushes, archival ink pad, gesso, white and black pen. stamp block and water colour blocks
