John Michael recently spent a super fun morning at a ceramics studio as part of a birthday celebration for two of his little girlfriends, Eva and Annelies. We chose an ornament to adorn our Christmas tree.
I loved his concentration and willingness to paint and explore color and texture, using his fingers as well.
I tried to help him keep his colors separate so his ornament wouldn't be a big brown blob. I think we managed pretty well...
As a finishing touch, I helped him put his handprint on the ornament. He chose green. Unfortunately, I forgot to turn it, so his hand was at the bottom of the ornament, upside down. Oh, well...
I think he was quite pleased with his creation and loved spending some time with his friends.
Today, I picked up the finished piece.
I'm thrilled with the way it came out. Yes, lots of brown, but plenty of color showing through!
I love the colors!
And, not to be missed... the big, green handprint underneath the ornament. LOL!
I've been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Doug. I'm a Catholic SAHM to 5 children. Our 4th child, John Michael, was born in November 2007, and has opened us up to the amazing world of Down syndrome. We are grateful to God for the blessings He's given us and the journey He's put us on. When I'm not spending time with my family, I sing with RSVP, an amazing vocal group, educate on Down syndrome, have my own health and wellness business, and blog about our life.
