there's just never one around when you need one...

We were out running errands on Saturday and it was a relatively clear day, so we could see the Charlotte skyline in the distance. Jack loves this and almost always points it out, "Look, there's Charlotte!" But, we weren't actually headed uptown, so after a moment, the buildings disappeared from view. Then Jack asked, "Where do beavers live?" "Usually by rivers, I guess." I said, and Doug nodded, both of us looking at each other, knowing better than to think this is just a random question. We didn't have to wait long for Jack to connect the dots. "Urgh! Well, we need to get some beavers here to chop down these trees so we can see the buildings again!"
