Painting 101

Mark and I finally decided to start our own blog. After reading everybody else's figured we should. So to catch everyone up to speed: school seems to be the biggest strain on our time. Mark's classes are hard and very time-consuming. My classes aren't so bad. The first block ended last week and with it I finished my Ceramics class and my sculpture class, both of which I quite enjoyed. The new block brings with it Watercolor and a digital technology class. We both still have our jobs for BYU. Starting last week, we became primary teachers! We have a class of 7 nine year-olds but it seems like a lot more. They are pretty good kids but very chatty and excitable. The primary program is coming up in a few weeks so that makes lessons much easier and shorter. Today we had some adventures which were really enjoyable. We broke out the flatbread maker from our wedding and made our own tortillas. A little practice was necessary but they were pretty fun and quite easy once we got the hang of it. We also spent about an hour out in the garage painting. It was Mark's first time oil painting and he did a great job. It was really fun for both of us. Here are the products of our labors.
