This one is especially for my father-in-law.
This week, we've been studying about Alexander the Great. After reading a book about him and his army, Hailey, my 8 yo, came to me with this question.
Hailey: Was Alexander the Great a real person?
Me: Yes, he was.
Hailey: Hm. I didn't think he was because that would mean Merlin and the Sword in the Stone were real too, and I didn't think that was possible.
Me (stifling a laugh): Honey, I think you're getting him mixed up with King Arthur.
Hailey, smiling sheepishly: Oh, yeah.
