Chalk Date

Now that I am over a week behind in my blog posts, especially with being without power for nearly a week, I am probably going to try to catch up a little faster, if you don’t mind.  Before everything happened with Hurricane Sandy, back a few Sundays ago, I stayed home with the boys while Rob went to youth group so that way I could have a sort of date night with my little guys (usually my parents watch them for the two hours that we’re at youth group).  I know, you’re thinking, “Don’t you spend every single day with them as it is?”

Over a year ago, my God-father gave my sons these giant pieces of chalk, and I have saved them for when they could hold them a little better.  We went in our driveway and the boys drew Transformers, cars, and we played hopscotch.  It was really a sweet time.  We sang songs and talked (Leto doesn’t really ever stop talking)! It was only for about an hour, and the boys said, “It is getting dark. Time to go inside.” I thought it was funny that they were the ones to decide they were done, instead of me telling them to pack it up.  Their art actually survived rain and stayed on the driveway until the hurricane weekend. They were a little sad that it is gone now, but future chalk dates are in store for us!

  5. HAHAHA! Oh man, Liam never stops talking either! Kids these days. I fear my future child will never shut-up, just like me 😉

    The boys are so cute! Their eyes are almost as big as the chalk. I am jealous of that chalk, it looks like a lot of fun! I am glad you got to spend time doing something a little different with them.

  6. […] is not the first time I posted about my sons drawing in our driveway with chalk, but we hadn’t done it since then, which was already nearly 4 years ago. While I regularly go through our possessions to purge what […]
