Today I am talking about her first Summer Extreme Event. Just for the record, two of her three Summer Extreme Events. My Buddy and Me is just what it says. Bridge and one other adult person. I was signed up as her Buddy for both her My Buddy and Me Events.
Her first Summer Extreme was called Klay Kids. We learned how to work with clay and form shapes. We made bowls. It was fun and a great learning experiecne. I was impressed how well she was following directions and forming her bowl. The clay was all prepared for us. So, all we had to do was flatten it and roll it out. Lucky for both of us, and probably most everyone there, we didn't have to free form the bowls. There were molds. Big molds for the girls as they would be slightly easier and various other size molds for the Buddies. I helped Bridge roll her clay out and that was about it. She helped me decorate mine. Neither of us noticed that we stamped the frogs on mine upside down. But I don't think it matters much at all.
Those bowls are proudly displayed in the living room. They're wonderful memories of the fun and learning experience. I hope these bowls last a very, very long time. I hope to hear Bridge tell her kids and maybe even grand kids about how those bowls were made.
