Fun with the Chalkboard Wall

While I have not yet put the white, trimmed frame I envision around my chalkboard wall yet, there has been no shortage of fun.

Last night, Soren and I played loads of games of  Tic-Tac-Toe – several times I could have beat him, but I kept trying to show him how to block the opponent yet try to win at the same time.  Nils said, he heard Soren teaching Maebh the same way. Showing her where to put her X or O to block him, yet still try and win.

Today he drew a really cool monster truck and John Deere tractor and was late for books upstairs as he had to put on some finishing touches on his pictures.

I think we can play a form of Pictionary with the kids this weekend.  I told Maebh that she can sit on the floor and I’ll draw something and she has to guess what it is.  She replies, “yeah, What is it?”  Guess, my idea is a little premature!!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
