We had the sweetest little 14 yr old girl named Amy come over to help with the boys for 3 hours on Friday and 3 hours on Sunday. It was fate the way we met her. Since sometime this winter I have been going once a week, early Friday mornings, to a heated yoga class when it works with Patrick's work schedule. Amy's mom is the teacher. Once we found out that we were practically neighbors, she told me that she is also a preschool teacher and has three young daughters who love to babysit! Bliss! So her daughter Amy came over for the first time on Friday and she played with the boys while Patrick & I worked hard. Sometimes Amy just played with one at a time and sometimes she played with both. No matter what she was doing she sure earned her keep! I could hear her playing with them -- and she is SO good with the little ones! So much patience. So fun! It was touching to watch Arlo get so much one-on-one attention. He didn't have any of the "stranger-danger" behavior that occasionally pops up either! He was ear to ear grins!
Here is a series of pics from last week's "Cy & Mama" outing to the Minnesota Science Museum. It was stormy that day so we did an inside activity - the museum! It is a bit of a hike from our house but Cy has been talking about returning non-stop since last week so I have a feeling we might be members soon.
We'll be seeing you back here in July with lots of pics I am sure!! Time for a little holiday! :)
