The days of summer are upon us. This means more time for things like dirty, fresh-from-the-garden hands, sand-infused socks and shoes, hammock lounging, ice cream, and hopscotch. Hopscotch! Just try to say that word without a smile. Sidewalk chalk was a popular gift in 2009, and we have plenty, in a variety of flavors. Blue is her current favorite, with purple and orange not far behind. There is one right way to draw a hopscotch grid, unbeknownst to me. Trust me, my girl knows.
