In and Out...







The opportunity to go to The National Gallery of Art for an hour or so appeared suddenly yesterday and so I seized it!  The children and I were able to see  Degas's Little Dancer along with 14 of his other works and then some Van Gogh, Monet, and Renoir rounded out our visit.  I could have stayed all day long, of course, but I really want these kids of ours to enjoy jaunts to museums so I try to keep things short and sweet.  Despite the speediness of our visit , we've been thinking about all that we saw (especially Little Dancer!)...  we have Chasing Degas to read tomorrow and I have been checking out The Kennedy Center's production of The Little Dancer online.  I love this stuff!

super smart to keep the museum trips short; everyone enjoys it more that way!

Beautiful art is so invigorating! glad you got to go!
