Richard [reading children’s version of Odyssey]: “Odysseus swore to fight with the king, so he had to go help rescue Helen from the Trojans.”
Isaac: “Oh!  Helen!”
Richard: “You know about Helen?”
Isaac: “Sure, she lost her sight and hearing when she was only two years old.”

Little Archaeologist

Isaac [nicely muddy from digging in the yard]: “Dad! We found ancient wood!  We pushed on it and the ground just collapsed.  It was like a wooden wall.  We think they people who used to live here were super bossy.  They built a big fence to keep people out of their yard!  And it’s old, like from the 80s.  I think we might be interested in, what do you call it?”
Richard [crying quietly]: “Archaeology?”
Isaac: “Yeah, that’s it!”
