Oh I did like this! I could see it all happening in my mind. I loved to play with chalk and this brought back some happy memories. I'm glad that your MC decided to take the chalk out and not to worry about folding the clothes. Great job! ^_^
Delightful article. I, too, took time to play with my kids. Playing with children is sometimes overlooked. Good job.

Most delightful! I especially liked how well you represented the chatter surrounding her when she unveiled her surprise.

This was such a good example of taking a moment in time, expanding it with just enough description and character development to bring us into the story... GREAT writing here...

Sidewalk chalk is the BEST! This is an engaging story with a good message.
Thanks for a wonderful afternoon. Your details had me on the fence enjoying the family fun.

One of my favorite scrapbook pages is of Aleigh's chalk art where she drew a cloud with purple rain. This was a great reminder that sometimes housework can wait. Congrats on placing 2nd this week!

What a great story. The imagery was excellent and the message delightful. I had to laugh...just bought a HUGE box of chalk for myself and my granddaughters. Congratulations!
