Update: First Week of Work

*Don't forget to get your post ready for Girls Night! Link-up is this Friday, August 24th!*

The first week of my new job was...

Refreshing.
Messy.  
Playful. 
Laid back. 
Delightful. 
Noisy. 
Long. 
Busy. 
Different. 
Adventurous. 
Exhausting. 

Yeah. All of that and more.

Though Josh was away and I missed him like crazy, it was really good for me to be working so much that week and to have the apartment to myself in the evenings. Not only did I get SO much done at the new place (more on that later this week), but I really learned a lot about myself and the kids during my alone time with them.

Ava and Eli are such great kids. Really. They're well-behaved (though all kids have their moments), silly, laid back, happy, and up for anything I suggest...other than nap time. We had so much fun last week!

Monday: We spent the morning at home and in the afternoon we took a nice, long walk to the park.
Tuesday: I took them to Tuesday Two's at the library and they loved it! That afternoon we went to the park and played in the backyard.
Wednesday: We played outside and colored in the morning and in the afternoon we finger painted and the kiddos got a bath.
Thursday: It stormed all day, so we stayed indoors. We watched Ariel, colored, and played with toys in the basement.
Friday: We spent all morning at the park and taking a walk because it was so nice out. They napped really well, so we just played with toys until Mommy got home.
Saturday: We went to the park AGAIN. It's just been too beautiful outside not to take them out. :)

This job is exactly my cup of tea, you guys. I don't think I could have asked for a better fit if I had hand-picked the parents and kids myself. Ava and Eli's parents and I get along so well and have almost identical views about raising kids. Their momma keeps saying that the kids are so happy and Ava always asks when I'm coming back. I don't know about you, but to a nanny/babysitter of 12 years, that's one of the highest compliments.

I am so excited and blessed and overwhelmed by how well this all fell together in God's perfect plan. 'Nuf said.
