Apparently, there is some confusion here;-)

Nicholas: I wonder how we're going to get across the river in the van.

Stephen: We could take a ferry.

Nicholas: Fairies aren't real.

Stephen: Yes, they are.

Nicholas: No, they're not!

Stephen: Yes, they are. Mom, tell him ferries are real! There's a ferry in Leesburg.

Mom explains carefully, reminding Nicholas of our favorite ferry.

Nicholas (grumpily): First, they're not real. Now, they're real. Y'all can't make up your minds.

I think we need to draw a Ferry Fairy.
