My Last Day

Last Friday was my last day as a nanny for the Schneidlers. I worked for a few hours in the morning. I made the boys waffles for breakfast and then we went outside and played. Isaac and I played baseball. They have white woofle balls and I throw these to him and he hits them with a plastic bat. Even Gabe has his own little mini plastic bat. It is very cute. Then Isaac rode his bike for a little while and then they went swinging. I took turns pushing both of them on their swings. Then we went inside to get something to drink and Isaac wanted to be read to. As we were about to read Michele came home. I baked Isaac and Gabe some chocolate chip cookies the night before. Because it was a special occasion Michele let them have one before lunch. Andrew then came home for lunch. He has been studying 12 hours a day 7 days a week for the Bar Exam at the end of July. I guess he will have to keep this pace all the way up until the exam. Needless to say he looks really worn out. Eventually the time came for me to say goodbye. Michele and I tried to keep it off for as long as possible. Michele gave me a hug and we both started tearing up. I gave Isaac and Gabe kisses and hugs. I know Isaac didn't realize that I wasn't going to be coming back. Michele and I planned on getting together in a few weeks at a park with Daisy and the boys. Daisy will be out of school soon and she and the boys love playing together. I know she is going to make a great big sister. She is very good around small children. As a gift they made a little story book for me of pictures of the boys. They made it online and it actually looks like a story book. It is so sweet and cute. I am going to miss the boys so much, but I will be seeing them from time to time. And come this September they want me to baby sit for them one evening a week on their date and Bible Study nights. So it is not goodbye, just see you later. I am so thankful for such a wonderful job the Lord gave me. He provided a Christian nanny for them and provided the perfect job for me when I needed it. God is so good!

Those little guys will miss you more than they realize now. It is always sad to part, even temporarily, relationships are our real riches. ec

And, you are the best - a great mother to Daisy, and a good caregiver. I'm glad you'll stay in touch with the family. (And, perhaps you'll have more time now to do your greeting cards that you sell on e-bay.)
