It is often said that the true test of what children learn at home is how they behave when they are out of the home.
That is bad news for me.
I received this picture from #1 son, age 20, living as a missionary in Mexico City for the last 18 months:
This was the explanation:
“…a picture of the trash pile in our house that we have because we have been too lazy to buy trash bags…”
If you ever wondered what missionaries in Mexico City feed themselves, there you have it.
Also this week, I received a text from #2 son, age 18, student at college:
“i registered for spring and washed my sheets”
He washed his sheets for the first time since I made his bed when we moved him into the dorm in August. Yes, 160 days between washings. I knew it was going to be a problem.
No word yet if the sheets are actually back ON the bed or if now he’s just sleeping on the bare mattress.
