At the Peabody Museum

| | Comments (1)

My brother Terence and nephew Michael Colin visited on Sunday from New Hampshire. The Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, Connecticut was one of several destinations. The hall of dinosaurs is, in Michael Colin's own words, "just amazing."

Michael Colin is a four year old expert on dinosaurs. He knew their names and their distinctive traits. He was also very good at identifying other animals in a photo exhibition in the museum.

The Peabody Museum is something of a tradition in our family. With Michael Colin another generation is discovering it.





That's quite a look of wonder on his face. Wide eyed. Young children are such a blessing. They help you see and experience things again like the first time.
