Art Appreciation
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Stephanie yawned as she sat in the back seat. Her mother was taking Stephanie and her sister Lynn to the art museum. Stephanie was not at all interested in going to the museum. Her sister enjoyed art, but Stephanie had never gotten into it. She would rather do something physically active, like go to the indoor tennis courts and play a game. However, Mom had insisted that she attend today because Lynn had gone along with the idea of doing a winter hike last Saturday. Lynn would have preferred to stay in and read or play music.
 
2     Stephanie sighed. It was only fair that she go along with this trip to the museum. Her sister had shown a good attitude during the hike.
 
3     They pulled into the parking lot of the museum of art.
 
4     "Here we are," Mom said (even though it was obvious).
 
5     The girls got out of the car and walked into the main entrance. A large sign stood before them, pointing out various featured displays. Stephanie and Lynn looked at it while Mom paid the admission fee.
 
6     "This looks interesting," Lynn said, pointing to the sign. "They have a display of modern abstract art. Would you like to go see that first?"
 
7     Stephanie really didn't care much, but she said, "I guess so."
 
8     Mom came alongside. "Are you ready?"
