"Gomos" at Epcot!

There's always stuff to be learned no matter where you go...and Disney World is no exception! We spent last week at Disney with Reese, and Epcot provided a neat experience in South Africa. A man was using a "gomo", a small axe-like tool, to carve & chop a walking stick. He said he was carving a monkey into the stick, but I didn't see it! Reese thought it was neat to pretend his mask on a stick was a "gomo stick" and chop things.
There was also a neat game in Epcot that Reese & I was great for his hand/eye coordination as well as large motor skills. There was a scene projected from above of a town with roads, buildings, houses, etc. Reese's job was to put the center of his disk on top of any trucks on the roads & click his button. That made the "supply" for the stores I was in charge of. Any time he clicked on a truck, I was provided with more supplies. My job was to sell, sell, sell! Reese's trucks were delivering hot dogs, CDs, & t-shirts, and I had to keep up with my clicks according to how fast Reese's trucks were delivering the goods. I was surprised at how fast Reese could find a truck, line up his tool, & click on it. I don't think Reese had any clue about the whole buy/sell concept of the game, but he sure loved tracking the trucks & clicking away!
