A few weeks ago, we had a fingerpainting party in the backyard.
My neighbor came over and brought with her an teenaged exchange student from France who was staying with her family for awhile.
The girls "painted" and we chatted. And a good time was had by all.
Our French visitor commented that she had never seen anything like it.
Later that evening, Katie said to me, "Mama, didn't you say that C was from France?"
"And don't the French have all that really good art. You know, like Monet and the Versailles and everything?"
"They do. Lots of very fine art."
"Then how in the WORLD could she never have heard of fingerpaints? Can you believe that? She's lived her whole life and never, ever, fingerpainted.
