Getting to know the girls...

I met with Dr. Ken, Rosamond, and Nathalie (Lucy was out of town) yesterday. We discussed a bit that I would be working in their house and a bit of what our thoughts were. Afterwards I realized that with Lucy gone and Nathalie leaving at 2pm each day that put Rosamond to do bedtime alone. So last night I went over and asked Rosamond if it would be helpful for me to come help at bedtime. She said it would so I purposes to come and help. It went quite smoothly.... A bit like a Madeline book ... Eight little girls all in row... Okay so maybe not that orderly, but they brushed their teeth, washed their feet, arms and faces, then knelt down by their beds. Rosamond led them in bedtime prayers, which I couldn't understand but she kept going till they were still and focused. Then into bed they went, lights out and good night kisses. The girls and I practiced saying good night in English - it's a work in progress. I am looking forward to working with her. Today, I am learning from Stacie how to do some of the jobs around here that she does because she will be going home soon for a few weeks. I will try to post pictures in a day or two.
