We were in my car, 2 of my nephews and their mom, driving to the Apple Ranch. We have a GPS (Global Positioning System) and the 5 year was very curious about the map system.
After several minutes of trying to explain in 5 year old vocabulary how a GPS works, it actually seemed like he pretty much understood. The questions continued:
Nephew: What's that triangle on the map?
Me: That's us, in the car. This computer talks to the computers in the sky and it keeps track of where we are on the road.
Nephew: I didn't know that computer had a mouth to talk.
