The first week went very smoothly, despite the fact we were all sick with colds. The other weeks have been a bit more challenging at times, but nothing near the catastrophic drama my anxiety was leading me to expect.
I loved having Jordie stay with us. She was so easygoing and helpful without the emotional attachment that extended family have. This meant that she did what I asked, rather than consistently question and criticise. I miss having adult company.
I am so thankful to God for providing the help I needed when all seemed hopeless.
We will look for another au pair before harvest starts in late October.
