February 25

Took everyone to see the Magritte exhibition at LACMA this morning. We really liked it. It was the first time all four of us had been to an art museum together. Normally Lauren's my art-buddy. But Ian expressed an interest (one of his friends is into Magritte), so Josh joined us too. I've found that getting the audio tour for Lauren really helps to keep her interest -- she just dashes around all the artworks that have a number, but at least then she has to stand at each one for a minute while she listens to the commentary. Hopefully she's learning something, but even if she isn't, it gives me time to examine the art without feeling rushed. When we're done I always ask her to show me her favourite piece and tell me what she liked about it, and I do the same for her.

What a great 'doorway'. Lauren is so lucky to have you as a stepmom.
