We got to see lots of different terrain on the way to and from NC and the kids asked all kinds of questions. The coolest conversation was my daughter asking about the sun and why it is hot and what it is made of on the way home- started because it was bright, glowing orange, and low in the sky as we went throught the mountains. I tried to get a picture, but didn’t come close to capturing the color. We also talked about the power lines going through the funny looking cutouts in the trees and the concept of state capitals as we passed what we assumed was Charleston’s capitol building. We drove through Columbus as well and the kids remember the COSI museum there from a year ago and now vaguely get that it is our state’s capital.
