Actually, it was last week, but this happened:

Two parents trying to work from home and four kids to keep busy.

In a genius moment that was an act of civil engagement, neighborhood service, math assignment, and keeping the kids actively engaged, our grandkids found themselves getting out the chalk and drawing a hopscotch. Around their entire block in San Diego. Five hundred brightly colored squares for any kid who wants to to jump them for as long as they want to–enough squares apart from others, of course.

There was a downpour over the weekend, which means they’ll have to do it again.

I didn’t quite ask if they were waiting for a new shipment of chalk but I bet it took a lot.

What fun! A happy accident.

Again: little gestures that have a big impact.

If they were to draw them again, it would be the best proof that nothing is over because of rain: we can start again.

Hang in there!

What fun! Suzanne is right, we can start again. Best of luck to the artists! (checks weather) Looks like Wed and Thur will be dry.
