It’s not everyday you get to lay eyes on a seemingly never ending array of original famous works of art. My eyes beheld so many today my brain is swimming in beauty. Hours later I still have an involuntary grin! As we admired works by Leonardo Da Vinci, Fra Angelico, Edgar Degas, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Giotto, Winslow Homer, and James McNeill Whislter (to name a very few) it was like bumping into an old friend. There were big smiles and little squeals every time we found a painting that we’ve covered in our homeschool picture study lessons.
Yes, at the Air and Space Museum our fingers actually touched a moon rock. Driving home this evening and looking up at the remnants of this week’s super moon I was overcome. How much “amazing” can one heart handle in a single day? I think I’ve passed my limit.
