Clara

October 6, 2009

I’m trying to get caught up here…

A couple of Sundays ago, we were lucky enough to get to spend the whole afternoon with Clara, while her parents went house hunting.  Clara is Mike & Beth’s adorable daughter and we were thrilled they trusted us with her for the day.

We had a fun afternoon, although we soon realized that she wasn’t used to being put down to watch people make beds and clean bathrooms!  Thank you Clara, as this meant I got to sit and cuddle while D’Arcy cleaned!  After awhile, she appeared ready for a nap, so we put her in our stroller (one of many) and she soon fell asleep.  My mother came by and happily took her and our four kids to the playground while I finished up the rooms.

Apparently, there was enough going on that Clara only slept for a very short time, but was happy to watch the other kids play.

We took some photos to prove to her parents that she had fun with us.  They’re moving soon; maybe they’ll let us have her again sometime!

Proof that she slept!
