Just wanted to share these couple of pics from the other day. We have about six chalkboards in the house - I think my love for chalkboards is leftover from my days as a teacher so our house is full of them. Bean LOVEs the chalkboard wall in our office. On the wall board Bean can scribble everywhere and doesn't have to worry about staying in the lines. Her newest thing is trying to reach as high as she can to color. "Me color really high mommy."As a side note, the actual drawings on this page are from Bean's cousins, not Bean. She's not quite there yet but our budding arteest will be soon!
