Late last night, we were driving home from town in the dark, when about a dozen mule deer appeared in our headlights. Deer on the road is not unusual, when you live in the country. They’d jumped the barb wire fence along the side of the road, and were milling about, trying to figure out what to do next. We were each in our own little worlds–the older boys were mostly asleep, Tom was concentrating on the road, I was thinking about what I needed to do once we got home, when Avery looked up and said, “WOW!”
We all sort of woke up when he said it, and agreed, it was absolutely a WOW moment. Avery was the only one who truly saw it–and without him, we would have missed it.
