Once upon a time Ian and I had a friend at Westminster College named Kourtney. She was an Art major, just like us. She graduated the same year Ian did, I followed a year later.

Kourtney and I are Facebook friends, quietly following each other's lives in the strange online world for the past several years. A few days ago she posted about a pottery class she was teaching for 3-5 year-olds at Kimball Art Center and I decided to sign Aven up. Sure, I can do any art project I can dream up any time I want with Aven, but I thought it would be nice for Aven to be in an art class with kids her age and I got the bonus of seeing an old friend:
|Aven had lots of fun pinching and smoothing her clay.|
|She was very proud of her creation. I got to make one too :)|
|We made cute little turkey containers. Aven just looked over at the computer screen and said "Hey! That's me making chicken potties!" Awesome.|
We decided to turn our drive up to Park City into a full blown Aven and Mommy date. We went to lunch and then got a treat at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory:

Thanks for the great pottery class, Kourtney, you are an amazing instructor! And thank you Facebook, the thing I both love and hate, for helping me stay connected to awesome people from my past!
