How many Hutchins does it take to make a chalk mess? That's a trick question, only one of course, but this chalk board kept my three little ones engaged for quite a while. Ruth is practicing writing words like "I luv MOM" and Lincoln is still working on single letters. Alara is just trying to get more chalk on the board than herself with only limited success. I love these moments when they are all playing nicely together AND (bonus!)learning in the process. Makes my mother heart happy.
