When we went to California in June we took the kids to one of our favorite museums on the west coast, the J. Paul Getty. Now I have to warn you, my kids aren’t the most city slicker sophisticated types. They aren’t afraid to burp in public and make loud declarations about how bored they are when looking at some of the world’s best art.
They were far more excited to run the stairs up to the museum than they were about the amazing works of art inside the museum.
The Getty has some of the most beautiful artwork in the world, including my most favorite Monet of all time. In fact, there was a huge Leonardo da Vinci exhibit with tiny detailed drawings and notes, and facts about Leonardo da Vinci I never would have known in a million years.
Amazing. Awe inspiring. Invigorating.
Seriously, you’d think we were *trying* to make them miserable. Poor depraved things.
But seriously, in the end I think some of the culture will rub off on them. It has to. Right? If not, I wash my hands of the whole thing.
You can lead a horse to water…..
