Sailing

7yo Son and his 5yo friend pull out the globe, set it on the coffee table, and plot their journey around the world.

They start in Florida, then visit Cuba to pick up extra supplies to help them get across the Atlantic.

7yo: "Then we'll go up and hit Spain and France. We'll stop and enjoy things, then pick up some ship's biscuits. And wine. Fine wine."

5you: "Then we'll sail across the Mediterranean and down to Africa! We'll visit all the animals. Especially the lions. And observe the desert."

7yo: "Yes. Then we'll travel around India, sail through the islands of Java and Singapore and the Philippines, and then to China. There we will pick up spices. And silk."

5yo: "And egg rolls!"

7yo: "Yes. Egg rolls. Of course."

I love the fact that they appreciate fine wine at such young stages... training them early? :)
