I feel that Takumi's experience in Canada has been a good one! He has been able to practice English, see Canadian culture, see how my family lives, and I have pushed him to experience the responsibility's of being an adult. He has shadowed me experiencing the different things needed to be done to live here.
Today he mowed our lawn for the first time. Something he most likely will not do again in Japan. He said it was more difficult than he expected. Something we must every week. He did a good job though!
