Some Chalkboard Fun

After letting the kids draw on and have there fun with the chalkboard wall in my kitchen for a few weeks I decided it was time to do something useful with it for awhile.

My husband suggested a weekly organizer to help with the chaos and I agreed right away. I have my calendar on my computer but it helps to see certain things written down on the wall as a reminder, not to mention Scott never looks at my computer calendar, ever.

I don't claim to be any kind of chalkboard artist that's for sure. I had to rewrite a few things because Casey said he couldn't even read it. sigh. It's partly the chalk, do people use those chalk pencils on there walls or am I just that bad??

Oh well, I like it :) And I'm getting a little better. 

At small groups a few weeks ago we talked about memorizing Bible verses and I was embarrassed to say that after years of Bible memory work at school I felt a little bitter about it. I was never good at it and it always just felt like something I did because my Bible class grade depended on it. 

Well I know now that it's not something you do because you have to but because you want to. I want to memorize God's words and have them written on my heart and brain, there to comfort me when I need them most. So to help me I reserved a spot on the wall.

Again with the bad handwriting...
