chalk peace

i bought a 24 piece box of chalk from Hobby Lobby for $2.99 I have had approximately 4 hours over the last 3 days of peace and quiet in my home. It's a mess to clean up everyday, but hey.... PEACE and QUIET. i'm a happy camper and may go buy a few more boxes this week.

Julian likes to use the chalk as chapstick (well, lipstick, but I'M calling it chapstick) and rubs it all around his mouth like a little clown. He also collects all the small chalk crumbs and puts them in his little dumptrucks and bulldozers and pretends that they're hauling colorful rocks. and of course, he lines up the worn down stubs of chalk and pretends that they are train cars.

annabelle is a little grafitti artist, and is working on coloring every brick on the patio. i hope she completes her task before it rains.

Annabelle was so excited when we spoke to her BRIEFLY on the phone - about getting to draw on the walls with CHAULK - when poppy told her he had a new name for her - she said "What is it?" poppy said "Chaulkie" (awkward silence) "Poppy here you can talk to Juju now - by" I just love honesty in silence....:)
