Brenna is Going to India!
We have settled into our new home (well...it's a rented old home...but new to us! :-) and are loving Asheville even with the cold and snow. I must admit that I'm ready for spring and warmer weather but am hoping that a visit to Florida next week will help me get through any remaining snowstorms yet to come.
Yesterday, the water in the birdbath in front of my kitchen window finally thawed out and this is what I saw!
We've all been busy with a combination of work, music, projects and visiting with friends.
I'm going to update a bit about each of us in some upcoming blogposts but thought I'd share Brenna's travel plans first. She has a trip planned to India!! I'm so excited for her. Her passport arrived a few days ago and she got her last shot that she needs yesterday.
She's been working very hard making and selling her pottery and worked at a seasonal job over the holidays at Honey Baked Ham. That was a funny story in itself just because she has been a vegetarian since she was 12!
Last week, she started a new job at a restaurant and has all kinds of projects going on raise money for her trip. She is renting the bottom floor studio apartment in our house which has room for her wheel and kiln and if she's not at work she is throwing pots, glazing pots, and just occasionally stopping to come upstairs and visit with us a bit!
She has a new website and is running a special on some of her pottery that will go towards the travel costs. Her website is BrennaDee.com and there is a link to her Etsy site from there.
She posted this message a few days ago on her Facebook about a special she is running to help fund her India travels.
If you have a moment or two, please stop by and check out her website! Perhaps there is a perfect piece of pottery that you would just love to have :)
I'm very excited about the possibilities for travel and other opportunities for our teens and young adult children. The networks that unschooling families have created through conferences, visits, blogs and Facebook have led to business development, travel, and friends all over the world!
Our move to Asheville was really a result of friends we know through the Live and Learn Conferences and the Autodidact Symposium. It really is true. Everything is Connected.
Happy January to you All. Thanks for Stopping by!
