Chalkboard Reveal!

No, not an entire wall, but I did paint the pantry door!  When I first started painting what looked like black paint on my crisp white door, I got a little freaked out...


But once it was "conditioned"  (covered it with chalk and then erased)...



...it received the enthusiastic approval of the whole family!






Since I had the chalk out, I changed up our mantle chalkboard too...
Paul and I are both working on scripture memory and decided to see if Charlie could do it too.  I mean, he knows all the words to "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" and "Jesus Loves Me" so why not John 3:16?  He has really surprised us with how well he has learned it.  I love that I found something fun for our house that has also led to spiritual significance for our family, because isn't that what the home is for?  

Hope you are having a great Monday!  Thanks so much for watching and commenting on our last video!!  It means so much to us that you have enjoyed it and take the time to watch.  Its been fun for both of us!  We have a few surprises coming up this week for our viewers/readers so stay tuned...
