Boating with the 4 year old he points to a section of earth emerging from Lake Champlain that looks just about nothing like this one.
- “Is that an island he asks?” Face squinted in the setting sun. Yes. “An island is land surrounded on all sides by water.” I define in a “its not really science time” way.
Even as we turn around and the shade slants over us his face remains wrinkled, now in concentration. “The top is covered in clouds and clouds are made of water vapor so ALL sides are covered in water.” He pronounces. Satisfied with his “all sides” explanation he heads back into epic battle clone warfare to defend our craft against attack.
I love to see into his head.
