Museum Day! September 30th!

This past Monday, Hubby took the boys to the Ringling Art Museum. Every Monday admission is free. I asked the boys what made an impression this visit. J10 talked about the Fates cutting the life string of the young lovers. C6 piped up about "the head in the basket" referring to beheaded John the Baptist. R7's favorite was the Blue Madonna, but he also described finding a cat "hidden" in a still life. T8 was reluctant to name a "favorite."

We love museums. And so I was especially excited to see this:

On September 30, 2006, for one day only, museums across the country will join the Smithsonian Institution in its long-standing tradition of offering free admission to visitors.
