Chloe and Her Leaves

My 3 year old granddaughter Chloe visits me for the day every Wednesday.

She found a new thing she likes to do at NaNa's. In the afternoon when it is warmer and sunny but the grass is still wet, we go outside to the front walk to chalk.

She loves finding sticks and since the leaves are falling and gathering on the ground she has found some other new"natural" play things.

Gathering them up, she makes a pile.

There must be a variety of leaves. Once the leaves are gathered from the ground she pulls them off of plants and trees. Those are special and funny because it makes NaNa scream! Like the leaves from the already bloomed Iris!

Then start chalking. You have to be precise and diligent in your work.

Getting the chalk on just right.

Finish them off with a jab here and a jab there with the stick.


Yes, Chloe, you should be proud of a good job!

Happy Fall!
