I posted yesterday how much fun we were having with the chalkboard wall, but tonight was hilariously funny! After dinner, the kids & Nils sat down while I drew something on the board and they had to guess it.
Within seconds, we were in stitches.. Nils drew a “dode vogel” which was the dead pigeon on the path to the kids’ school, which Maebh pointed out to & from school for a few days, when suddenly it was gone. Then Maebh drew funny pictures, which you knew she had no idea what she was drawing, but had a lot of fun with it. Soren was great, with his love of school things. He started off with the A & B board which his teacher uses each day to keep track of Year 1 & Year 2 kids. He insisted we didn’t shout out the answers, but instead raised our hands. Then he did a meat tenderizer!!
Nils then attempted to do a game of hangman, but with it set up like this “_ _ _ _ _ _ _”.
I whispered to the kids and then at the time time they replied “BED TIME”!
I took a few photos of it with my iphone and took a video of each kid to just have this funny memory on record.
I can see many many nights of this in our future. In fact, at bed, when asked what they wanted to tomorrow, both said pictionary and hangman on the blackboard. Rainy & short Winter days stuck inside won’t be so bad – let’s hope this fun doesn’t wear off too soon!
Nils makes my large chalkboard look rather small – or is just me?
Speaking of chalkboard and small – in looking through some old photos today, I found some of Soren & Maebh. He was the same age as Maebh now (3 years old) and Maebh was just under one. While she didn’t crawl or scoot, she got around by rolling everywhere – not wanting to miss a bit!
Clever little guy took some chalk and drew some tracks and then drove his train down the tracks.
