Chalk It Up to Monday

It's Monday. My kids are eating breakfast, it is almost time to take them to school and I am scrambling to get a post in. Perfect time for Monday Mugs.

This week's theme is Chalk.

What to do with all that brand new chalk?

How about a good game of hopscotch

And as a big brother it is your job to boss instruct your sister on how to play.
She got it!
So head over to Oswald Cuties and link up!

Oh and TOMORROW it is time to write up your Ten Things to Smile About This Month lists and link up. What things made you happy and smile this month?

  6. Just looking at the chalk gives me goose bumps. I can't stand the feel or sound of it.

    Cute pictures though. I love that big brother is teaching her how to play!

  7. My husband has this weird aversion to sidewalk chalk. Which is unfortunate because Avery has a deep, unabiding love for it. As usual, she wins.

  9. Hopscotch used to be the only thing we did with chalk when I was young! So cool!
    Did you already have these shots or did you purposefully take them with chalk in mind? Really great shots!
    Thanks so much for linking up!

  15. My first graders asked me today if hopscotch was a compound word??? Try explaining "scotch" to a first grader.

    Your pictures are always terrific.
