If you go to ArtPrize (and you should. seriously), go during the day. Grab your kids from school and show them that an afternoon spent appreciating art together on a lovely, sunny fall day is probably better for them than sitting in their chairs at school. Certainly it's better for you than the afternoon you had planned of running errands with Lucy (you do have a Lucy don't you? If not, you should totally get one). Pack some bottled water and apples, buy them some crappy snacks to fill in the gaps, wear comfortable shoes and bring your camera. Because even though you'll be surrounded by the most breathtaking art in the world, the most beautiful thing will be the four people right in front of you. And you'll want to take a picture of that.
This is me being real. Thankful for an afternoon of fun with my people. Wondering if I owe our dear teachers an explanation. Hoping some homemade granola and a sheepish smile will do instead.
