We got this old chalkboard at a yard sale years ago when our kids were just little. It's been in the basement for years now and since I've been seeing lots of chalkboards all over blogs and Pinterest and in magazines I thought I'd get this one out just for fun.
Even the eraser has seen better days. I haven't painted the frame work on the board as you can see. There is lots of chalk build up along the edges.
I went out and bought a new package of chalk and put a few pieces in an old jam bottle.
Hubby laughed when he read the saying I wrote on here.
He had a point. He said what is so easy about summer when I have to mow lawns and cut up trees and stuff?
So, I changed the saying to "You are my sunshine" for now but, I know later on summertime living will be easier and those words may appear again. :)
Besides. The words to the song, "You Are My Sunshine", have special meaning to our daughter and her husband. He sang that to her on their wedding day 5 years ago on June 21st.
Or maybe something else will appear ~ like "Welcome Home" ~ for when our daughter, her husband and our 2 little grandsons come for a visit next month. We are so excited about that! I think a certain 2 1/2 year old will love to write on the chalkboard too, just like his mother did.
Here they are getting packed up for a move. :)
We can't wait to see our sweet grandsons next month.
No, they aren't moving east to our province.
They and their parents are moving from the northern city in Alberta where they've lived for 7 years to a much larger southern city. It's going to be a big adventure and a big change. Their visit here preceeds their move so July will be a very busy month for them. And in August we're going to visit them in their new home!
What a summer it will be!!
Are you having some chalkboard fun? Do you have a favourite saying on yours?
