Las Vacaciones, Dia Dos

Ah, sweet sleep. Everyone was in bed by 9:40 last night. What a difference a solid night of sleep makes.

Well, it’s an improvement – but not life altering.


We went to the Museum of International Folk Art and made Wayang Kulits. The five public museums in Santa Fe have an amazing bargain: children under 16 are free and you can purchase a pass to visit all the musuems within 5 days for $20.

This afternoon after a lunch with some of the most expensive guacamole known to man, we went to Palace of the Governors. It’s the oldest continuously occupied public building in America. There is a chapel inside with some uncountable number of crucifxes. Some on the wall. Some larger than life. Of course, Elliot wanted to know who the guy on the “T” was. I had to explain that it’s Jesus knowing full well that the next question is “who is Jesus?” So, in the end, there’s this guy nailed to the T and some people think he was important. The end.

Not really ready to explain that Daddy is an Atheist and Mommy is agnostic and Jesus was just a guy. Also not sure that the inside of a chapel is the proper venue.

    I’m not really sure how to approach the whole religion thing with my kids, either. Thea has been saying that God made everything, something she’s heard in daycare, I’m sure. I try saying, Well, that’s certainly what some people believe. But it’s all very inadequate.
