sidewalk chalk

one of the perks of mike's new job is the amount of handouts he brings home. first it was a visor for max. then a plastic basketball hoop you hook over a door. that one didn't last too long. then the other night it was plastic slinkys and sidewalk chalk. the slinkys lasted shorter than the basketball hoop. but the chalk...it's about the chalk. i'm always amazed at the amount of fun kids can have with sidewalk chalk. and as a mom, i love it too. sure, it's messy, but with a little water and effort, comes right off. and the enjoyment they seem to have makes the mess worth it!

I can't believe how old Luke is beginning to look! Sidewalk chalk is definately a wonderful invention! I love their studious facial expressions.

They've got sidewalk paint that is a ton of fun (but its a lot harder to get off). I figure anything that gets my kids creativity sparking is well worth any cleaning up efforts. Too cute!
