Soap Class!

We've done it again!  We just had our Third Annual Soap Making Class!  (Click HERE to see the past classes.) 
With Yvonne Smythe as a teacher, some wonderful girls as students, and Eden and I as photographers... I knew we would have a wonderful and blessed time! 
As it turns out, we did... and praise the Lord!  Everyone was kept safe, too... =)

Enjoy these pictures:

 Right after every one's arrival, we set up class.

Here is our wonderful instructor, Yvonne!
She set us all up with mixing the lye.

WARNING!  Hazardous Materials!

What?!  Hyperactive soap making with De De, again?!

Mikell, Maddie, and Mahala taking a moment to sit, after finishing their "Hot Processes".


Krista and Kathrina, making their "Cold Process".

Hmmmm, I think Kathrina was enjoying herself! :)

Our table, busy at work... (except for me, because I took the picture!)

Eden and Krista photographing the last bit of the class.

After the class (and clean up!) everyone came inside for a tasty lunch!


Kathrina and I enjoying our food and a good conversation!  (Of course!)

Special thanks to Mommy who prepared all the food!

After the meal, "off we went" to the room above the garage to do some Irish Dancing!

With me "trying" to tell everyone what to do, but at the same time "remembering" what I was suppose to do... ended up to be a success!!!  (Surprise, surprise!) 
Everyone learned really fast and had a lot of fun!

Swinging partners...

...with hair flying!


"Go Ava!" 
I was quite impressed with Ava's dancing!  Here she "helps" me with my braiding in the "Haymakers Jig".


Our last dance, "The Sweets of May", was a big success... everyone did such an amazing job!


Doing the "Seesaw"... the most dangerous step in Irish Ceili Dancing!

And "Ring the bell!"

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Over all, we had a marvelous time fellowshipping with everyone!  It was truly a blessing to do this class.
"Thank you, Yvonne!"



The majority of the girls... well, at least the ones who got in the picture!

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!"
