Playing history

We had a lazy homeschooling day today, emphasizing physical recovery over academics. At one point the kids watched a DVD on Sacagawea. We've been reading Streams to the River, River to the Sea by Scott O'Dell as our read-aloud lately, so that tied in nicely. Good thing I discovered the DVD last night while hunting for the original b&w version of Phantom of the Opera!

Later in the day, Little guy raced in to see me while I was working.
Little Guy: Mom! We just noticed that this Playmobil pirate would make a perfect Clark!
Mom (clueless): Oh, really?
Little Guy: See -- if he didn't have this eye patch, his beard and uniform would be perfect!
Mom (still clueless): Oh. Uh, Clark. What do you mean by Clark?
Little Guy, laughing: Like Lewis and Clark, Mom! Clark!
Mom: Oh, yeah. Right!

Good thing I'm the teacher, huh?
