Chalking it up ...

Isn't this a sweet picture? I am always looking for “feel good” articles to post, but it gets harder and harder to find them so I was thrilled with this.

These are the children of a bi-racial family in Naperville, Illinois. Their mother, Amber White, said, "We spent the weekend chalking and talking about love and inclusion and treating everyone we encounter with kindness."

The project wasn't limited to her children either. She said that as other children came to watch they were encouraged to join in. The different colors are representative of their choices and it's a great example of how beautiful and interesting a jumble of ideas can be.

It does make for a very nice entrance to the driveway.

From my friend Jan:

Great picture. Kids are so cool when given a chance!

Years ago when my school was being renovated, my art class got moved out to an old beat up portable unit. The kids complained how ugly it was, so we changed it! Different classes took different sides and boxes of "sidewalk" chalk, and we decorated our building. After a hurricane washed it all off, another group did it over again. We had the coolest building on campus!

Sending a big shout out to Amber White. What a cool mother who takes time with her kids and teaches them at the same time.
