I searched for 9 years for an old school chalkboard and about a week ago I was in luck I found one at a local consignment shop, well actually I had seen it about 2 months ago but it was sold, I was very disappointed but not discourage so I went home and made our own handmade chalkboard out of eucaboard and pine, but about a week ago when I stopped in to the shop it was still there and since who ever had purchased it never came back they (re)sold it to me! Up it went in our dining room where we do out homeschooling and just in time school starts in 2 weeks. I love watching the kids draw on the chalkboard especially since it's right next to my computer so I can enjoy their company while I finish up my work.
This is Lucy's latest chalk drawing creation, I think it's pretty darn good for a 9 year old.

and then there's Lucy's Chipmunk obsession after watching the Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel , I can only listen to their singing for so long or I'll go nuts!
Here's Little E writing her name for the first time and then she did a drawing of a person hanging upside down from a tree by rope. Don't ask.
