Portraits of the Artists as Very Young Men

At Back-to-School Night this week, Margot & I got to drop in on the dudes’ new classrooms and teachers. We were charmed to find their self portraits hanging up. Note Finn’s inclusion of green racing stripes on his glasses, plus Hen’s generous application of freckles. 😊

NYC Wednesday: Empire State of Mind

I’ve been remiss in sharing a few last shots from our great adventure in NYC. As usual on Wednesday we packed things in:

  • We began with a picnic lunch in Central Park (thanks to Auntie Laura for organizing things so that we could simply pick up chow & walk over), followed by the four boys & me touring the American Museum of Natural History. (Henry’s as taken with their owl collection as he is horrified by naked proto-humans. 😜)
  • From there we headed down to Rockefeller Center. We took in the sights of Atlas, rendering in both bronze (a towering statue I remember seeing when I was three years old!) and Lego!
  • Afterwards we headed down to Little Italy for dinner at La Mela & cannolis across the street.
  • Finally we wound things up atop the Empire State Building. (Dad, I included the vertigo-inducing 360º shots hanging off the side just for you. 😲😉)

Here’s our gallery
