We've been in the city for a few days.
We drove down to the Scott Antique Market this morning.
It is open only one weekend each month,
so we lucked out to be free and in the city today.
I found lots of rusty objects and had to pick and choose carefully
in order to stay within my budget.
I hope to share some excellent results with you in a few weeks.
Thursday was our art date at the High Museum with Charlie.
He really loves it!
As we approach the museum on Peachtree Street, little Charlie starts saying
It is amazing to me how a child not yet two years old
can observe a statue for moments on end.
He checks out all of the anatomical parts,
naming them while comparing them to his own,
all the while daring me to 'touch'.
And he draws and paints in the art room.
On this particular morning,
we were making rabbit collages to go along with the story that was read.
This is a special time for us,
as I realize that before we know it,
Charlie will be in school
and we won't have the opportunity to spend as much time together.
We're off to the Balzer Theater in a little while to see
"My Name is Asher Lev".
I am really looking forward to it.
And then home we go!
A wonderful time in the city,
and I'll appreciate being home again!
