Proud Momma

With my Josh graduating and my N finishing up his Eagle Project, there just has not been a lot of time for me to sew.  Instead I thought I'd use this chance to show off my talented kids.  Below is Joshua playing on the potter's wheel.  He is getting pretty good.  I love all the pots he has made me. 
 Here is his latest. 

 Here is my N giving the wheel a go.  He is new to it but is learning fast.
 His passion is drawing.  This is his final project for his art class.
This little elfin man was carved by my DD the last time we visit my mom and dad.  I think she has some of my mom's great talent. 
 In fact, I think all my children do.  So thankful for their artistic abilities and for a mother who taught me to develop mine so I could in turn teach my children.

(I didn't forget my Alex, but he's been so busy with his engineering degree that his artistic indevors have been put on the back burner.  If you would like to see Alex's latest look here.
