Several years ago Jed's sister's family nicknamed Buddy "GPS" because they were driving him around in their car and he was directing them to our house. Buddy has Jed's sense of direction, love of maps, and pays attention to where things are when we are driving around town. We realized the other day that Squirt has "train GPS." He can now recognize when our car is going in the direction that will cross over train tracks. It used to just be that he spotted the tracks, or the railway crossing signs, but not he can actually remember where we are and where the train tracks are. He starts yelling, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN TRACKS" at a very loud level of excitement.
Sunday, on the way to church, as we approached the tracks we had to stop for a train so I snapped this picture of the kids.
