So, as I mentioned in yesterdays post, we had HS open house last night since my oldest will be in 9th grade next year. We haven't heard the best of things about this school and we really just wanted to see for ourselves. Let me tell you how pleasantly surprised we were! The 9th graders are pretty much segregated in their own wing called the Freshman Academy. They rarely interact with other grades and since our son is in all the advanced/gifted classes other than his electives we think all is going to be GREAT! We haven't made a final decision but at least we feel better about our options.
Today, I had a clay class with Alice. We created the clay picture frame with sculpted leaves and I just love how easy and fun this project is. It was just Alice and I ~ so I stayed in my sweats and slippers and she came with no make up on - she didn't want me to take her picture but she's lovely with makeup or without!
Hope you are having a great week so far. Mine has been busy and I'm working on stuff for the Battle of Byron this coming Saturday.

We painted geraniums yesterday in paint class
Nicole won the drawing and got to take home the project piece I painted in class.
Today was our last day for bowling league. I did better than I've done in weeks. I bowled a 214, 169, and 168 for a 551 series. I was so excited to finish the season with high series of a 579 and high game of 226! YIPPEE!!
However, our team finished last. That's the pitfall of having handicaps but that's okay! It was a fun bowling year and I'm looking forward to next year already.
We have open house tonight at the high school my oldest "might" be going to next year. OH MY! High School ALREADY??!! We've not heard the most positive things about it but we really want to check it out for ourselves and form our own opinions. He's already guaranteed spots in the advanced classes which will be awesome but like I said we'll just have to wait and see what's gonna happen.
Have a fabulous day.

I knew the exact project that we'd create - a faux slate heart with hydranges made out of clay.
I had made one and gave it to Donna Dewberry when I went to HD certs. last month and Barb really LOVED it when I showed it to her - so knew that was what we'd create.
We had a fabulous lunch and lots of time to laugh and chat.
Saturday Studio Clay class~
Sherry won the drawing and got to
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back on Tuesday to post my LAST day of bowling league scores and post pictures from both paint classes on Monday.
Have a great day.

We painted a basket of hydrangea this past Saturday in paint class. We're painting them again in paint class this Friday -so I'll post those pics after class.
Josie (Sue's sweet mom)
Josie won the drawing and got to take home the project piece I painted in class (below). I painted it just a bit different so she would have two different paintings.
Then we painted the English Garden Landscape and Sue and Josie hung out with me for another class and Ellen joined us too.
Monday we painted lilac
Sherry won the drawing and got to take home the project piece I painted in class.
THANK YOU ~ all that visit me and continue to come back even though I've been terrible at getting by to visit you! Since the holidays I've seemed unable to get my schedule back on track but I'm working on it daily! I've been tagged by Beaufort Belle and I haven't forgotten just gonna have to post it another day as I have to get ready for my Clay fun day with Barb today ~ she won a drawing a couple of months ago for taking 6 classes in a month and is coming over today to play with clay and have lunch with me. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Roz and her painted cherry blossoms
Dogwood class ~
English garden landscape
This was Jeanne's first class and her name was drawn so she got to take home the project I painted in class.
This was also her first class
she had to go to the doctor so only got to paint for an hour
but I still made her let me take her picture.
Wednesday my neice and nephew came over after school and we had so much fun. We played on the trampoline and I just had to break out the camera. Andrew's new word is "actually" it's too cute.
