I can tell you everything you want to know about raising a girl.
And I assure you that I can tell you NOTHING about raising a boy.
(Before I go on, let me clarify that I know there are grammarians who would say, "you raise corn, not children", and to that I say in my best Texas twang--"Well where I come from we raise children too.... so you can just hush.") Were you able to hear how almost all of the words had an extra long drawn out syllable?! :-)
Ok, back to the topic at hand!
On August 1st my our nephew, Michael, will fly to Denmark....where he will stay for 4.5 months.....WITH US! :-) Luckily Michael is 16, so I don't think I need to know TOO much about "raising" a boy! I have a feeling he is just about RAISED already.....
We are so excited to have him here with us and cannot wait to show him as many things as possible in Denmark and Europe!
I wish all American high school students were encouraged to do what Michael is doing because there is something so powerful about living within another culture; something I wish I had experienced before I was 38 years old!
We are so ready for this adventure! So bring on the BOY!
