Wednesday night ladies

Aren't students the best?

This is my neighbor Chris, you remember the one who works for the olympics... She showed up Wednesday for class in this wonderful artist-made shirt. (sorry, don't know the artist...) She saved her left over paints from last week by folding them into a sheet of disposable palette paper. Upon opening it, we all laughed. She never realized how much she looked like her paints...

Yeah, we had to pause for a photo!

It was Cinco de Mayo. Don't you just love an excuse to have a margarita? These are my "wine ladies". My special Wednesday night class. On a whim, a few years ago, it was mentioned by a student that they could loosen-up much better if they were drinking wine...

A bottle was opened in seconds.

They haven't stopped coming to class! We paint. We laugh. We learn and we certainly get crazy! Bless my husband for putting up with us... One thing for sure, we are never quiet.

Chris suggested bringing margaritas for the evening. It was a real spirit-booster! (no pun intended... well, maybe.) Even before taking a sip, the ladies joyful roar began. Does it get any better than this? I can't ever tell who's having more fun, them or me.

...and they pay me for this!

Love you ladies.

Hope your Cinco was celebrated too!
