it’s day 10…

…of Gus’s 11 days of spring break. I should have something at least mildly entertaining to say, a quip about kindergarteners in Fort Lauderdale, perhaps. Or a humorous blow-by-blow of our family vacation to Washington D.C., during which it SNOWED in APRIL (how’s that for material!).

3. My favorite things from our D.C. trip: these sculptures and this book at the Hirshhorn.
