Museum of Fine Art

So it is my goal this year to get out of the house more.  We were slaves to the curriculum in the Fall because I just had so much I wanted to accomplish.  But January - May/June is a long semester and we just have to break up the monotony of the routine.  First I had the younger two join a musical drama club which puts on a production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat in March.  Ohhh.... fun.  They had to audition last week but I wasn't able to see as no parents were allowed in the audition room :0  They practiced with me so I did hear the audition at home.

Gift Shop
Second attempt to get out more included visiting the Art Museum yesterday.  We got a personal tour of the Indian & European art collections.  The program was titled Art 101.  I was expecting more, I'm not sure why I thought there would be a hands-on component.  I asked the girls if they thought the visit was a waste of time and I got a resounding "yes."  However they enjoyed being out and they enjoyed the gift shop. 

My only regret was not trying to find art pieces by Monet since we studied him a few weeks ago.  We were all tired and had a 2 year old in tote.  It all made for a rather exhausting day.
