Preschool with the granddaughters included making Indian corn. Each week, the concentration on their faces is priceless.
Yesterday was Museum Day, so Dave and I spent a couple hours at the Art and Archaeology Museum of the University of Missouri. It's always free, but we thought Museum Day was a good excuse to visit. We really enjoy museums of all types but especially art museums. The AAM is known for its 100-plus-year-old plaster casts of ancient Greek and Roman statuary. It's the next best thing to being in Greece and Rome! We also looked at ancient Greek and Roman archaeological finds (jugs, jewelry, religious objects, and the like) and early Christian art. (What can I say? I married a pastor who is also a classicist! Good thing I'm interested too. . .)
