Homegrown Hieroglyphics

Ah, to be a kid again. To think nothing is more thrilling than some sidewalk chalk and the ultimate blank canvas - a driveway! As I look out my office window I can see children's hieroglyphics all over the place with drawings of flowers, sunshines and hopscotch boards. And as the weather is slowly warming up, I have a suspicion that this will be commonplace around here.

Little boy doodles.

This photo reminds me of my own times playing hopscotch in front of Mrs. Corpe's classroom in the first grade. It's good to know some games are still fashionable today.

The cat just had to join in the fun and decided to roll around in the chalk. It's quite fitting that her name "Rangi" means "color" in Swahili.

LOVE the picture of your son. The light is gorgeous.

ps- I noticed you have Tapestry, by Laurel Lee, on your favorite books list. I had her as a professor at Geo. Fox. Did you ever take a class from her?

Yes, I did have Laurel Lee as my Freshman Composition professor. It is very interesting to read her book taken from journals she wrote over the years. I wish I remembered more about that class, it was at 7:40 am!
