Ballerina

We were on a family vacation in Paris in the summer of 2009. Walking around one day we were discussing where to go next. One of the choices was a museum nearby. When she heard this Isabel shouted, "Edgar Degas! Edgar Degas! We have to see Edgar Degas!" My wife and I were both stunned to hear this from our seven-year-old, but that decided it. Off to the museum we went. It turns out that Isabel had a thing about ballerinas at the time and wanted to see Degas' bronze Little Dancer ballerina sculpture.
