The next day we were in the pool and a woman asked about what we were doing and I mentioned the trip to the art museum. She looked at my grandson and commented "Well, THAT must have been boring!"
In fact, not at all. Both of the kids were very much attentive and appreciative, very much enjoying the experience and making serious observations. I would not have taken them if I thought it would be otherwise.
My grandson continues to paint when he is not in the pool or the Gulf. The trip actually had the influence of turning his effort toward human figure.
This is amazing to me because a year ago he could not hold a pencil in his hand.
