"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

More Pics

I think I'll just keep posting pictures this week. It's easier than trying to think of something clever to write about.

Steck and I signed up for a pottery class on campus. It's been a lot of fun, but who knew that throwing a pot on the wheel would be such a difficult task? Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore made it look so easy....
so does my teacher for that matter. We have been working on the wheel for three weeks and last night was the first time I finished a bowl that doesn't have to be thrown in the slip bucket. Now, getting it trimmed and ready to be fired is a different matter. The rule in class is: Don't ever get attached to a project until you have all the firings done!

While I was in class, I got a frantic phone call from Inigo and Buttercup. Inigo finally lost the front tooth that was ready to come out at Christmas (remember that he wanted it to come out on Christmas Eve so Santa and the Tooth Fairy could meet?) The tooth was dangling by a thread and wouldn't even bleed when it came out. They were so excited!


If you look closely at the above picture, you will see that Inigo's nose isn't exactly clean. He has a pretty heinous cold right now. I let him go to school with a low grade fever (99.7) but he came home pushing 102. Bad mommy.
I have put him on the couch with his Superman pillow, the wonderfully warm rag quilt made by Wees, a cup with a curly straw and some of his favorite books. (He didn't even think to ask to watch TV.... and I'm not going to remind him!)

He's a trooper and has a pretty good attitude, but you can tell he's not feeling up to his normal speed!!
Tomorrow is the big dance for Buttercup. I still haven't decided what to do about pictures. (Thanks Devany for the offer of the staircase.) I'm thinking I'll just splurge and pay for the pictures myself so I don't have to worry about it.
It's the easy way out.

How fun it would be to take a pottery class, but I would come home with nothin but clay ; )

Hope Indigo feels better soon and that Buttercup has a great time at the dance.

Happy Valentines Day.

What finesse, what skill... you look great at the wheel.
And, those dance pictures are more fun than any professional ones... they show personality, and help with memories of the evening. I wish I had pics that did that from back in the day of "proms".
