It's such a beaitiful day! I love it! I went to church this morning, something I haven't done in about a month, with my mom and brother. Then, as always we went to my grandma's. This is the second Sunday in a row that we've gotten to sit outside on the patio. She has a lovely view of the sound. My aunt, and two of my cousins were there, and one of them brought her kids. They were so sweet. I take care of kids for a living and so I think the adults think I don't want to hang around with my cousins kids when I see them, but how could one not...they are SO sweet!

Grace is my goddaughter, she's 3. Austin is 5 and Bella is 1. Bella doesn't like me though. Every time I try to pick her up or play with her she says "Mamma" in a sad way. Today she started to get really tired and we were swinging on the patio swing and she was laughing and laughing and then you could see she was really tired because she actually leaned against me and let me put her on my lap.

My grandma filled her pond today too, so it was sort of chatoic making sure Bell didn't fall in or that she didn't fall off the deck. Lots to worry about. Austin and Grace are just so sweet, and caring. The four of us removed are shoes and let our feet hang in the water, they wanted to be by me, especially Grace, she always said so. At one point I had the two girls on my lap and Austin next to me, and we had a great time splashing, even Bella loved that and let me hold her. We played in the big field behind my grandmother's house and had races, climbed trees. The last two Sundays I've been able to spend time with my family and both times I've hung out with the kids almost the entire time, but I don't mind because I rarely see them and like I said, they are just the sweetest kids. We're planning a trip up to visit my other cousin in a few weekends.

I'm starting to admitt to people that I'm getting kind of tired of the nannying thing, but I haven't mentioned this to any of my clients. I mean I'm getting older, I need to start thinking about my future. Not that I wouldn't be content to be a nanny the rest of my life, but there are other things I want to do. I just haven't decided on a plan yet. I'm so undecided.

Yesterday for my birthday my family took me for a nice dinner at a place on the water. I'm really loving this nice weather. I have today off and most of tomorrow off, it's great. So, I think I'll take my laptop outside and finish transferring all my music onto my laptop. Happy Sunday everyone!
