Mikayla is taking French this year and has also joined the art club.
Lucky for her, these two teachers got together and decided that a field trip was in order, so yesterday she went to the National Gallery of Art for a look at some French art.
Lucky for me, it's still okay for your mom to go on your field trips (the 8th graders are not so similarly disposed).
But, for some reason, I am destined to never go on a field trip that doesn't have some major mixup. Like the buses didn't come.
Apparently, transportation cancelled our buses and by the time the mix up was fixed, we were VERY late for our field trip...you add DC traffic to that a two hour tour becomes a thirty minute jog through the museum.
But, I had never been to Museum, and I have to say, I was extremely impressed. The art was amazing and the docents really know their stuff.
I loved the Monets, they had quite a few.
And of course Seurat is my favorite.
And just for fun, one of the "cool" 8th graders on the trip was cute Regan.
The field trip was a little nutty (which included a 20 minute stop at Burger King where they completed 60 different food orders), but fun nonetheless.
This is someplace I definitely plan on visiting again, but slowly...and of course, its free! (hint, hint)
