Oh Mom!!!!

Spencer (my back seat driver) screamed those words to me while I was driving earlier today.

Talk about being scared out of your mind.

His word were, “Oh Mom, watch out for the turtle.”

As soon as he said," turtle", I had noticed the little creature slowly creeping out from the side of the road.

I swerved quickly to the left and then back to the right.

Now, I should not have been going a wee bit over the speed limit (you did not really read that part) because the poor van felt like I was putting it through a slalom test at high speed.

I felt bad for the oncoming traffic; they had no clue as to what was going on. Lol…

They just saw this woman, zig, zagging all over the place.

The boys were chuckling and my heart was pounding. Ugh!

What a scare, great way to make sure your heart is working.

The turtle was saved and the person behind me also swerved.

Upon our return home, I made sure to look and the turtle was nowhere in sight.

** The turtle above was one that made a home in our ivy a few years ago.
