Peaceful start to the week

Wesley called Saturday and asked if we wanted to come up and go to the mountains on Sunday. Well, heck yeah, what else have I got to do, except make about a hundred more pieces of pottery!
So, we picked her up, grabbed some sandwiches, and drove up to Pilot Mountain which is only about a 30 minute drive from her school. Did I mention I love this child? She actually wanted to spend her one free day in the mountains with her mom and dad! So what could we do, but show her a fun time. We had a great hike (kicked my ass) Gerry got to do a little bouldering, I put Sassafrass leaves in my hair, and Wesley has lots of great new things to write about if she ever has to write a comedy! We drove back to town and found a great coffee shop called Kranky's, had some amazing chai, then took her to dinner and dropped her off for her mandatory Sunday night film screening. It was a fun, spontaneous day, the weather was cooperating beautifully, we laughed, we told stories, we talked about her writing, had great food, and we might have seen a UFO on the way home. Did anyone see a star that seemed to appear and then drop straight down to the ground last night? WE did :)
Looks like a good weather week and my last week to make things before multiple kiln firings next week and then the show drama begins.
Peace ya'll



She is such a mini YOU!

I got engaged on Pilot mountain ;o). I love thinking about Wesley in school kicking some film making butt and adding pure kick ass girl intelligence to the world and the film industry. I do love a good movie. It is like listening to an amazing song. Life changing.

Sounds awesome.

Andrea, what a cool place to get engaged! WE used to climb up there all the time, might have ben climbing there when that was going on:)
Yes, Wesley is kicking some butt, she is already writing a screenplay for a fourth year film.

What a perfect, beautiful day. The reason Wesley likes to spend time with you two may be because you like to spend time with her, and do so. Not all kids are so fortunate.

Hi Lori, I was just telling someone that even if Wes were not my kid I would want to spend time with her, she is so interesting and inspirational! Thanks for the comment :)
