A Monet Morning

Yesterday the littles and I…all three of them…set out for the very first time on our own for a doctors appointment and a few errands.  Yikes.  I forgot what it is like to bring an infant out and about, especially in the frigid New England air!   While in the car we listened to Linnea in Monet’s Garden.   My big littles (!) were completely inspired. 

This morning the big art books came out and they explored the work of Monet and Van Gogh (Spencer needed his own book after all!) in creative bliss.  Inspired by the beautiful glossy pictures in the books the “fancy chalks” came out and their own works began.  It fills me with such joy to see them carried away in a creative journey using the names of Monet and Van Gogh as if they are old friends.  Joy.
