Musee D'Orsay

Many people told us that this is their favorite museum in all of Paris, and it was especially nice for children. Not only is it visually stunning, but it felt accessible to me as an adult and not too overwhelming for a kid. My mom had purchased a book for Sojo this summer called My Little Orsay, and it was a great introduction to some of the famous pieces of art in the museum. It's all about finding those works when you get there, so that made it extra fun. We didn't find them all, but that leaves us something to do next time. 

Sojo loves art and was so inspired a few times that she simply sat down a few times and started to sketch. She was sweet in that she wanted me to stand next to her and not leave when she was doing this. I did manage to take a step back to watch her, and this was about the time I started to tear up. So very beautiful. 

Here is what she was drawing...all of us at the Eiffel Tower. Love how close together we all are.

It really was a beautiful day and showed just how a child can be inspired by the art of others. She is a beautiful artist and captured the essence of family.
