I bought an easel for my daughter at a yard sale this weekend for 3$. One side is a chalkboard, and the other has a giant clip on the top for artwork.

Each day when I come home, I arrive to find that the easel has been strategically placed at the front door with a note for me.

Monday’s note:

Dear Mom,

I am going to Neptune to investigate the dark spot, then I am going mars and will stop by the moon on the way home.

be back at 1:30.

ps. Don’t forget to water our garden

Tuesday’s note:

Dear Mom,

I am going to Italy to see beautiful art and the colliseum, then I am going to Egypt to see the pyramids, and then I will stop by China to see the great wall.

be back at 3:30
