I heard recently on the Today show that piracy has gone up 70% this year. And by piracy, I'm not talking about selling illegal dvd's on the black market. I'm talking honest to goodness (or dishonest to badness) sailing the high seas and taking over ships by force...stealing loot and holding passengers for ransom. Seventy percent is significant.
Give it another 15 years or so and you can be upping that percent. Reid has recently informed me that he wants to be a pirate when he grows up. Yep, he'll be another statistic on the open waters.
Parker on the other hand plans on sailing the open atmosphere. He wants to be an astronaut. I used to want to be an astronaut. I can live vicariously through him.
Parker likes to get to the bottom of everything. Dinner table discussions and time to talk in the car usually starts out with "Let's talk about..." and some kind of scientific topic. Like the digestive system or skin, bones and muscles, or the solar system, etc. But once Parker learned of the lack of gravity in outer space, he was hooked. Like you can just eat a sandwich and instead of setting it on a table, you set it right in the air in front of you and it floats around. Nothing could be cooler to my four and a half year old.
Thanks Uncle Jeff for the new Cd. See You On The Moon is our current favorite.
