Surrounded by Turkeys

On our way into school today, I was scanning the radio for some good song all five of us could sing along too. Usually I am the one to point out sites on the sides of the road, but today it was S1...

"Hey, there were a ton of turkeys in that field back there," he announced calmly.

Three boys cranked their heads back to the field we were passing just as fast as they could. But we had passed the line of woods and couldn't see them.

"Really? You REALLY seen turkeys?" S4 grilled him.

"I really did," he answered.

The three younger boys began firing questions at him and recounting stories of when they had seen turkeys in our field, the neighbors yard, the camp ground we stayed at, etc.

"Do you see lots of turkeys?" S4 asked S1.

"I see them all the time. I'm surrounded by turkeys," he answered sarcastically.

It took everything in me not to burst out laughing. The insult was lost on the boys as they were trying to figure out how it was their big brother seen turkeys all the time and they didn't.

And then this song came on and it took us the rest of the way to school, and this is one of our favorite songs so all ended happily.

This just made me smile. I love being reminded of the simple things in life with little kids. I cherish those sweet memories from my three girls. Of course we never really talked about turkeys, but it was more like the purdy flowers on the side of the road :D

Keep your stories coming. I'll be right here following along.
