I took the kiddos to the pool on post today. We had a great time, thanks for asking.
On our way out Kim asked "Why do they have all these lights on the road?'
Fair question, she was asking about the street lamps. And the road is pretty woodsy and runs along a lake so street lights are needed.
So I tried to keep it simple, "It's so soldiers can see when it gets dark."
"Oh, so they don't run over any panda bears!"
I was totally thrown for a loop on this one. "Kimmie, why do you think that panda bears live on Camp Shelby?"
Without skipping a beat she said "Well, of course they are living, otherwise they'd be dead on the side of the road."
