Georgia O'Keeffe trip

Today Kelton and I took a field trip to the DeYoung Art Museum in San Francisco. We went to see the special exhibit of Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings. She is one of my favorite artists, so it was an especially delightful day for me. It's impressive to see the intense vibrancy of her canvases in real life. We also went to the 9th floor observation deck and viewed the city. Kelton and decided we want to live up there!

Afterwards we spent an hour in the adjacent Japanese Tea Garden. Kelton chatted with the gardener while she waded hip deep in the pond skimming the surface. Kelton also attracted several carp and took portraits.

It was a lovely, cool, sunny day and we all appreciated the freedom of homeschooling.
