Tiles and Flight

Here are some tiles that just came out of the kiln today. I was a bit miffed to see that my top elements are going. My backers looked really flat on the top "bunk". I did like some of these tiles a lot. I experimented with some yellow just to see if I liked it or not. I had a little bit left of an order that needed to go out so I finished up a kiln load.
We are heading out in the morning to go "home", or at least the place I call home...Syracuse NY for my grandmother funeral. It will be the first time the kids have ever flown on a plane so they are pretty excited. This also will be a new adventure for the two of us taking the kids!! Both of us hate to fly so we have to really put on our adult faces and act like we are having a blast and there is nothing to worry about. (Which..there isn't, we are just a bit narotic and one of us gets motion sickness pretty bad.) Good news is that we scored a lap-top for the trip so I can check in on all my fellow bloggers. Can't wait to see what Ron is up to up in Penland this week.

I relies sometimes I am camera happy with the girls but a mother can't help it. Both the girls lost their first teeth and I think its so quirky how Aydan looses one on one side and Mckenna on the other. This was the last day of school so everyone was very excited. (I guess I owe Quaid a few photo's on here soon.)

I am sorry about your grandmother, and I hope that on this visit or another to central NY you will stop here in Etna, NY and say hello!

Have some fun on your trip and celebrate your Grandmother's life. I'm sure that's what she would have wanted from your description of her.
Your girls are beautiful, let's give some face time to the boys now!

I'm sorry it's under such circumstance, but it's still delightful to know you're back in Syracuse for a visit (and consider it home), which (as you know) is only about an hour away from here (Rochester).
Thanks for your dedication in taking photos of your processes.

I was so sad to read about your grandmother. She sounded like an amazing woman- lucky you, to have had such a close bond.

Safe trip & Big hugs!
