car conversations changing world views

the other day in the car, when brody and i were heading off to preschool, he was pointing out letters that are in people's names. birdie drive = b for brody, and so on.

somehow we got onto talking about last names. he thought it was very cool that everyone in our family has a "S" in their name. so, he started listing off everone's name. emily smith, and you are a smith, and micah smith, and dad is a smith, and hannah smith, and isaiah smith, and then he said something that i didn't understand.
i had to ask him three or four times what he was saying.

walker smith.

he is a little boy in liberia that we sponsor.

and brody includes him in our family.

what a small, small world it just became.
