This was Sam's last Tuesday with us. It was always going to be the last day, because we decided a few weeks ago that our Fall routine was running very smoothly and the toddlers were doing just fine. I loved having her here to help, but it was more that I wanted her more than I needed her. It was a win-win situation all around, but we both knew that it was always going to have to end. As it turns out, she received a full time job that she is starting next week. She had been working at Buntzen Lake for four days a week since September, and full time before that. She has had this job for the past seven Summer's while she was going to high school and in university, but she always knew that this would be her last year there. And when she received a job offer last week, she knew that all her work towards her Communications Degree had finally paid off. It wasn't quite what she was looking for, but it is a perfect entry-level position in her field and we are all so excited for her!

But we are all going to miss her so much. She told us that she is going to miss us too.....we are all rather attached. She has worked so hard and the children just adore her. The relationships that she has made with all of her fuzzins is priceless. Baby is one of those kind of little people who takes a bit of time to get to know. And she is quite choosy as to who she likes. Well, Sam worked hard with her and they are really good friends now. It's really quite precious to watch and listen to them. Today, Baby decided that she needed her nails "sprinkled" and Sam was happy to do that for her!
