Heard on the train

This morning on the train in to work, there were 4 small girls sitting near me. They looked about 5 or 6 years old. Here are some quotes:

Refering to me lying down:"That lady is still asleep!"

With great excitement as we crossed the Hawkesbury River bridge: "We're on the Harbour Bridge!"

When I sat up: "The lady is awake now!"

They spent some time writing in note books, and the word "procedure" was being bandied about. I thought this was quite an advanced word for their ages, which perhaps explains why they were using it at every opportunity!
