We all know from reading the blog that Ava loves to color (our coffee table, walls, windows, etc. are a testament to this) so I figured she would love to play with chalk. One evening last week we took out a bucket of sidewalk chalk and dressed up the driveway. She was very unsure at first, but once she caught on, she was coloring everywhere. She loved laying down while I outlined her and drew a face on her little chalk outline. Of course she demanded different shapes to be drawn and for as long as it stayed on the driveway (until Bradley washed it off) she would stand at the mirror and admire her work and name the different pictures.
