52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 46

Ethan has enjoyed
all the times
Tyler at Afrikolor
has offered a pottery class.
So this past weekend,
when he offered another class
you know Ethan would be there. 

With Valentine's Day
coming up next month
Tyler thought it would be great
to have kids make a teapot.
For the first time too,
he got the kids on the wheel
to make a cup, saucer, sugar pot
or whatever they wanted.

Ethan made a cup and vase.
I have visions of breakfast in bed
in the near future.

Tyler shows the kids how to put their teapot together.  

Making space for the spout.

Getting some help.


Here is my handle.

Making some decorations.

This will be a cup.

Happiness is getting your hands
covered in clay.

I love pottery, and I think making it is a very cool skill to have.

I can't believe that Tyler!!What a great teacher he is. I think it is so wonderful that Ethan is getting exposed to so much when he is still so young. Go, Ethan, Go!! He is going to be very gifted I think at making things with his hands. He already seems so artistic. He does seem to concentrate very well on all these things he does to make things. I love that he is having this opportunity. We never did anything like this when I was Ethans age.
