On the way to Awana tonight, the following conversation occurred:
Scott: mom, can I go to Aaron's college when I grow up?
me: It depends on what your interests are by that time Scott.
Aaron: I'm going to Luther!
me: Really Aaron, why do you want to go to Luther?
Aaron: Cause there's a walmart there!
Oh yes, you know you live in the rural country side when your kid looks forward to going to a certain college because there's a walmart nearby. Little do those 5 and 6 year olds know that there's probably a walmart near every university in the country... except our nearby Upper Iowa.
I love living here where the porch swing is frozen stiff, the snow is 2 feet deep, the windchill is 30 below and the nearest university doesn't have a neighboring walmart!
