Journey to the Other Side of the Earth

Recently we made a grave error: we decided to indulge some childhood memories by showing our kids an episode of Reading Rainbow. We watched a nice little segment about the Magic School Bus traveling inside the earth. The next day Jake announced a plan to dig to the other side of the earth.

I got out the globe and showed him that digging to the other side of the earth would land him in the middle of the ocean. He remained undeterred.

I asked if he would like to check out a library book on what is in the center of the earth. He agreed.

"I'll start in our yard and dig out some weeds since you don't like them," he explained.
On second thought, perhaps I'll let him dig out a couple weed patches before checking out that library book.
