That's not exactly the point, mom...

Oh when did she get so sophistocated?

Grandma and Grandpa took E to the museum this week to view an exhibit by Joe Fafard, a fabulous Canadian sculptor.   She had a great time looking at all of the detail in his work, and later playing in the discovery room.

Anyways, when she got home, she showed me a flip book that illustrated how he created a huge horse image in a field of various different grains.  It's only recognizable from the air, and it's quite interesting. 

I joked with her about how it wasn't gluten free, and she shot back, quite quickly:

"You know, that's not exactly the point, mom"....  "It's ART, not food!".

This from a tiny little 8 year old, who apparently is growing up faster than I thought LOL.
