With temperatures nearing 60 degrees Monday, it was a good time for kids to get out and have a little fun in the sun. So, with chalk in hands and an endless imagination in their heads, the kids in the Dixon Family YMCA’s daycare ventured outside to turn the concrete into a canvas and sketch out some chalk drawings as childcare teacher Mckinzie Battles (left) talked with Lexy, 5, and Delaney Bock, 7, about their artwork. Temperatures through the rest of the week will bounce back and forth between the lower 50s and 60s, with partial sunshine, except for Friday, when scattered showers are in the mix.
