Lunchtime Convos: Life in the Desert

Not quite sure what to say since this isn't about any kids medical issues! :) Just kidding of course, but it DOES seem like that's what my posts revolve around these days! However, this one is a funny from my favorite oldest son and it went a little something like this:

We were eating lunch today and somehow (I rarely know how we end up talking about what we do...) we got talking about living in a desert. Ellie piped up that there was no water in the desert which lead to "do people in the desert live in houses?" "do their houses have water and bathrooms in them?" and other random questions like that. One of the kids remembered that Aunt Lois (their great aunt-she's, honestly, one of the absolute MOST wonderful people I know) lives close to the desert (she lives in Arizona) and they were all  SO excited that they actually KNEW someone that lives in the desert!!! Nevermind that she actually DOESN'T live IN the desert, but they didn't care. The best, however, was Darren's question. "Mom? Does Aunt Lois just take her camel or does she have a car too?" HAHAHAHA! I seriously laughed so hard. I assured him that she pretty much took her car or walked where she needed to go. I think he was a little disappointed that she didn't have a camel. :) Oh my, they sure do make me smile.
