Kyle went to Phoenix this weekend to visit friends. He left Friday and then came back late last night, getting home after I was asleep. However when I got up at 6:15 this morning, he was down in the kitchen, pecking away at the netbook trying to get a paper done for school.
When I picked up Delaney's backpack to take him to the bus stop it was heavy. So I asked him why it was full of books. He had homework this weekend. When I asked him if he'd done it he said "No, I was stupid."
On the way to the bus stop, as I was giving him a little lecture about responsibilities, I mentioned that Kyle was gone and got up early this morning to get his homework done. And that he could take a lesson here from how his brother is handling his workload. Especially as Delaney was watching YouTube while eating breakfast.
Hopefully seeing his brother working will sink in a bit more than my lecture.
