Wilmington, NC – The Children's Museum on a Tuesday afternoon is a scene of playful chaos - a toddler bangs on chimes in the circus room, while older kids ring up cartloads of plastic produce in the grocery store. Wandering through the middle of all this activity is Mark Kesling, the museum's new director. While he obviously enjoys the swirl of activity, for much of the day, Kesling's busy in the offices below, where all those little feet are reduced to a pitter-patter on the ceiling.
