Homeschool Field Trip

On Thursday we went to the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston to see the Masterpieces of French Painting exhibit from the NY Met! It was wonderful and I highly recommend it to everyone. Prepare your children to keep some distance between themselves and the pictures remind them there is not running, stomping (the rooms echo) etc... and go! go! go!
During most of our 2 hour tour (during which the kids did not complain until we were in the last 5 minutes of the tour) we practically had our own docents following us around we even managed to get one to jump accorss a painting while yelling no much like that scene in the Body Gaurd with Whitney Houston. I think the Red headed boy and the 3 year old looked a little suspicious!
Regardless, this was great and the kids got to see Monet, Manet, Pissaro, Van Gough, Gauguin and more!!!! There are some really cool Religious art pieces there also. At the end we each got a post card with our favorite paintings on them...except Pearson but I should have gotten her a picture with dogs she really liked the dogs! (The street scene is Parker's favorite by Pissaro and the Bridge is Peyton's favorite by Monet).

This sounds so fun!!! I wish we could have been there. We studied art last semester, and Emma was so enthralled with every piece of art! She wouldn't leave until she'd seen it all. Awesome!
LOVE the Bodyguard reference!
