We went to the Peabody Essex Museum the other week – Larry and I were last there in 2010, and the boys have never been.

One thing I really enjoy about this particular museum, is the way it’s curated.  They do a great job of mixing disciplines and eras together in a way where it’s completely intuitive and natural-feeling, it gives a great sense of the creative – how unlike things can feed off each other, so to speak.

For instance, ship models and figureheads are mixed in with nautical paintings of all eras.

They also have a great sense of what kids can tolerate, so here and there are exhibits where the kids can get a little creative themselves.

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss’ birthday, did you know?  The school made a big deal about it – part of the Read Across America initiative – and in fact Alistair is reading “Green Eggs and Ham” to one of the kindergarten classes today.  We had a little celebration at home yesterday.

All of which is to say, we’ve been keeping busy, and by hook or by crook we’ll get through this winter!

I have been managing to sneak in outdoor runs about once a week – I’m hoping the weather will turn with the clocks, and that I’ll have enough energy to get up and out early mornings again very soon.
