Handmade life: Kid Art

One of the best things about living with children is having their creations scattered around the house, adding color and ingenuity to the decor.  It's especially fun to watch their abilities develop.  This chalk drawing, a collaboration by Will and myself, was at the beginning of kindergarten when he was first practicing writing his letters. He wanted me to join so I colored in his letter shapes and we had a blast doing it and admiring it for the next few weeks.  I adore the way their creations and our collaborations enrich our home.
