Sidewalk Chalk

IMG_3134We’ve got little kids in our neighborhood, and every once in a while they do something that reminds me of how much fun it was to be a kid.  I came across this little bit of sidewalk graffiti that combines counting up to 100, using different colors, and the utter joy of using chalk on concrete, and it really brought back memories.  I liked the feel of the gritty chalk bumping along the coarse, uneven surface of the sidewalk as we made a drawing or left a message or created a hopscotch outline, and then clapping my hands and smearing my trousers in a futile attempt to get rid of the chalk dust.

  1. It’s so nice to see little kids having fun. Our neighbors have a small pond in their back yard and their kids w/friends ages 5-9 have been skating out there having the time of their lives.
    My grandparents had a similar sized pond at their house; we really thought we were skating at Rockefeller Center, instead of the glorified mud puddle that it was.
