Way Back When-esday: Mini Museum Mates

Dateline: May 2007
Twins' Age: 5 Years Old

The Saturday morning before I learned of my pregnancy, I'd taken my bi-monthly tour group through the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Subsequent tours were led with the growing duo in-utero. Once they arrived, they were 100% comfortable in the museum...first in their Duo-Glider over the smooth marble floors, then as above, as excited art appreciators, asking to go there over more "traditional" toddler locales. For the past two years, our beloved museum has been in transition---the last year, closed entirely---for an amazing expansion project.

May 1? The doors re-open and we get to re-acquaint with long-missed works and explore all sorts of new acquisitions. We couldn't be more excited!

Play along with Way Back When-esday!

Boy! I've been out of the loop. I didn't even realize it had been closed for so long. I bet the reopening will be awesome!

I can't wait to take my little one to a museum. She's gonna love it like the boys did.

I remember roaming the halls of the Met when I was pregnant with Bella. We have so many experiences in common you and I. I can't wait to hear about the reopening.

Love museums! I used to teach at a museum magnet school : ) Our Science Museum moved to a new building a few years ago and it's an amazing space -- and our Children's Museum is THE BEST!! Your two looked like they certainly could have given a tour themselves : ) Fun!

Hope you don't mind me asking, but how was the doctor's appt last week?

I wish we had had the opportunity to explore Museams when mine were younger. It's so nice to have that.

I think it is wonderful that you could share your love of art with them from so young.

Jeremi said...

Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for the super nice comment you left on my blog yesterday -- it really means a lot to me!
My mom thought the same thing, but I thought that was just a mom being a mom : ) How did you start with getting your book published?
Thanks again,
Jeremi
