soldering class today

today i taught my first soldering class to my new acquaintenance, Stephanie. we met when she ordered a soldered bracelet from me. she expressed interest in learning, so i said, "i'd be happy to teach you". it was a great experience as it taught me things to look for, situations to encounter and to remember that what comes easy to me, isn't so easy for the person who has never done it! we worked our way thru a couple easy soldering situations and then onto a harder project. i found myself really tired when we were done, since i usually don't talk that much! and it found it hard to try and teach without sounding bossy or impatient (even though i wasn't feeling that way, but felt like maybe i was coming across that way..) things to work on....
by the way, the picture is an old class photo of my dad when he was little. he'll read this, so dad, how old are you in the picture?
