The class was during the evening in Fort Worth so we took the opportunity to explore a bit during the day. We stopped at the Perot Museum in Dallas on the way. It was easily the most fun museum I've been to. It was chock full of interactive exhibits - my personal favorite was in the sports hall where you got to race an animal or athlete. Both Nathanial and I are faster than a t-rex :)
After fun exploring and a great dinner, it was time to head to class. I was a little apprehensive about what to expect. Would I be good at it? Would I be the only person attending alone? I had no reason to be nervous; the teacher was incredible and the ladies at my table were so sweet! The class lasted over three hours and a new hobby was born. I've been practicing several hours a day since.
It's been about a week and I've already gone through:
6 nibs, 1 pot of ink and lots of paper.
I've written the alphabet, names, song lyrics, random words and lots of Bible verses.
For a few days, I kept writing "pickle" over and over again because my p and k needed some work.
Want to help me practice? Leave something in the comments I can write for you. Favorite verse, movie quote - name it and I'll write it!
