A Lasting Impression

I hope that homeschooling my children in their early grades leaves a lasting impression. I LOVE teaching them and seeing the lightbulbs of realization. I enjoy the hands-on fun stuff. So when we pulled out the clay to work with texture and form letters I was sure it would enhance Doodles memories of kindergarten.




I never imagined we would ALL remember this project for a very. long. time. ...



(OK, so the photo is flipped kind of funny, but you get the idea... )
"Can I leave my name out so Daddy can see it?"
"Sure." ---2 hours pass---
"Mommy- I made a ball out of the clay again and you can STILL see my name(on the oak Amish-made dining room table you just got a couple of years ago...)!!?!"

Oh well... It will probably fade and if not- we'll always remember kindergarten with Doodle...

Any chance it's near the dry-erase marker 'lil sis initiated the table with?

I hope it will slowly fade off for you! I'm sure though it will not be the last!

Hey! Watercolors do the same thing to my cheap table. Those amazing "Magic Eraser" things from Mr. Clean work wonders! They are gentle and don't seem to take off finish or do any damage. You could try that.
