4th graders interpretation of nudity

my sweet little music kids today. I ask them how their field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts was yesterday and am answered with silence.

"Did you like being there?"

one boy raises his hand, tentatively. "Well, yeah. It was good. There was a lot of nudity."

Silent agreement from his classmates.

"What?"

"You know...there were a lot of statues and paintings...and (makes a gesture as if he was a large chested woman carrying her 'bounty')..."

...at which point, I cease being a mature elementary music teacher and laugh like the twenty-something I don't let myself often be in class. :)
