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!
