Life Lessons...

Published on 1.05.2011 in ,

As I stated in yesterday's post, Mrs. K wants to start a Life Lesson list for 14-year-old Mr. High School.

One has officially been checked off, although I still believe a wet diaper, and a dirty diaper are two very different things.

Still, it's pretty close.

What I need from you is more ideas!!

Here's the list as it currently is and we'd love to have more.  What do you think some great life lessons are that can be taught?  Leave your thoughts in the comments and we'll add it to the list.  

I'll be tracking Mr. High School's progress, so check back as we cross things off.

Mr. High School's Life Lessons

1. Change a dirty diaper (Check!)
2. Drive a stick shift car
3. Light a fire without matches/lighters

Change the oil
By Cook - you need to make sure to include "from scratch" - and how to bake something as simple as biscuits from scratch.
Build a fire in a fire place or campsite
How to... read a map, use a compass, tie good knots, purify drinking water, cook over an open fire... (those last two turned out to be helpful when the power went out for 10 days when we were kids. Thankfully dad and mom knew how to do those things somehow!)

I think that's enough for now... :)
