You know you are raising a 'missionary kid' (MK) when your kids:
... think a snow angel is something like Frosty the Snowman.
... get excited about a library.
... see it's 30 degrees out and still can't be bothered to put on socks and shoes.
... always miss their friends, no matter where you live.
... make up a foreign language that only stuffed animals speak.
... see it's 30 degrees out and skip out the door without a coat (and then scream).
... think a 10-hr airline flight is normal.
... fight over which suitcase they get this time and know how to pack and unpack themselves.
... can't tell the difference between a long trip and a move.
Scary but true: Driving home from our 10-day Oregon trip last week, it became clear that Anna truly believed we were about to pull into our house in Congo. Her main concern: The toys made it alright. The simplicity of being FOUR.
