Black Board Reminder

     I am pretty sure that my kids would forget their own heads if they weren't attached.  Every school morning is a nightmare.  Inevitably one of them (usually Riley) gets into the car and announces that they have forgotten mittens, knapsack, snow pants, homework, sometimes all of the above.... if it can be forgotten, it is.  Many times I have had to circle back to the house after we park at the school because someone has forgotten their mitts (would you not notice that your hands were cold as soon as you left the house?).  I am hoping that my new chalkboard will help... I'll keep you posted.
I went to my local thrift store and picked this picture frame up for $5.00.

I bought a thin piece of wood and had the lumber store cut it to size (why not it's free) $7.00.  I then put a garbage bag on the kitchen table, and painted the board with chalkboard paint( I already had it, but it cost under $5.00 at Micheals.  24 hours later I hot glued the board onto the back of the frame.  I nailed some small nails in too, just to be sure.  I then hung it up, and well you know the rest.
