Staying home with Michael while my mom recovers has been a real treat in the amount of time I get to spend with him. However, having so much time means I need to be a little more creative than normal. The weather has been very wet, so we have been stuck inside since Monday. It finally stopped raining today, but everything is still wet. Except for the sidewalk. I went for the old standby and pulled out the sidewalk chalk.
We started with a pumpkin. I did the outline and some of the coloring. Michael did the stem and most of the coloring.
I mean he really went to town. You might think they are moon beams coming off the moon, but they aren't. They are sticks that the moon puts out to keep rockets from crashing into it. (He couldn't possibly know that NASA just crashed a rocket into the moon, could he?)
And, the final product. It would be nice if they lasted until Halloween, but it's been so wet this fall I wouldn't be surprised if they get washed away.
