Kids’ take on travel

As I try sorting out our migration from the UK to North America this summer, I’ve found myself rehearsing plans in front of Katherine.  She loves to hear “stories” about what we’re going to do and when, and I now get frequent requests to repeat the itinerary–with Katherine interrupting every two minutes so that she can point out some detail I forgot.

Her favorite part is that she, Nathaniel, and I will be flying to Nova Scotia with a quick layover in Iceland.  Katherine has two children’s books set in Iceland, so she’s very excited, though I’ve tried to explain that we probably won’t see much from within the airport.  I’ve come across her huddled in her room with Nathaniel, backpacks in hand, as she explains what he needs to take on his trip and how he should–and should not–behave.  I think she’ll be a good little travel companion.  Nathaniel, on the other hand . . .

    I would love to hear those travel conversations and Katherine’s recommendations that Nathaniel should carry in his backpack! Katherine may also like following along on the flight path on the screen on the plane. Hope your Iceland landing is in daylight.
