Happy Chaos »

Our detour with a Nathanism thrown in…

My kids love trains which caused a little detour on the way home from my sister’s house today.  Angie was kind enough to watch my kiddos while I was at a school meeting.  When I left her house with the kiddos, there was a train going under the old train bridge just down the road from her house.  We, of course, had to stop the van on the bridge and watch the train go by.  We then headed toward the highway with the train traveling right along parallel with us. 

The boys didn’t want to leave the train, so we skipped taking the highway and headed into town where they got to see it go over the cool bridge!  train (Photo borrowed from Brian Schmidt)
The only point of me mentioning the train is that it we ended up going home in a different direction and entering our town from the west instead of from the north. 
About a half mile from our house, Nathan perked up and questioned, “Are we almost home?”
I assured him that we would be home in a minute or two.
“I thought so!  This looks like the habitat I live in!” 
It cracks me up to hear habitat from the mouth of a 6 year old.  Do they learn that word in Kindergarten? If not, I have no idea where he picked that one up. 
  • Life with Kaishon - That kid is a genius! Seriously. Habitat? I don't even know what that means and I am 33.

    You are such a wonderful Mommy for following the train. I want to be more like that. I haven't followed any trains in the longest time.ReplyCancel

  • heidiannie - You seriously need to get him a good dictionary to read- it sounds like he would be a good candidate for dictionary reading- a habit once started, is impossible to break!
    Already his vocabulary is phenomenal!ReplyCancel

  • Natalie - That is sweet! Lilly kills me every time she knows new and crazy words. They do teach an awful lot in kindergarten I have noticed!ReplyCancel

  • Cindy B - that boy is a walking dictionary..LOL
    I love pictures of the older bridges!ReplyCancel

  • Tim - Love this!
