Brooke brought home a very cute Columbus Day picture. She finger painted the water, cut out a boat, etc. The typical preschool craft.
I asked her what this craft was about. Here is our conversation:
Brooke, what is this craft about?
Brooke: Christopher Humungous
Christopher Humungous huh? What did he do?
Brooke: Well he sailed in a boat and found our country.
Yes that's right. How long ago did he do that?
Brooke: Like 59 years ago mom.
59 years huh? How long did it take him to find America?
Brooke: 59 years!
How many ships did he use?
Brooke: He used three but I only drew one. Actually, I put it on sideways but then I fixed it.
Okay, can you remember anything else?
Brooke: yes! We don't have school Monday to celebrate his Birthday!
Okay, close enough :)
