International Host Family and Au Pair Day, 2010

Thank you to everyone who came to our pizza party on Friday! And a special thank you to The Little Gym at Providence! I think it's fair to say that everyone who came had a wonderful time.

Some highlights of the evening:
  • Meeting our newest au pair, Audrey, and also a visiting au pair from North Carolina, Marina. So glad you came!

  • Watching the kids play in the Gym, especially Krista, as she ran at the wedge-shaped mat and knocked it down with all her might!

  • Celebrating Laetitia's birthday with an ice cream cake made by Vero!

  • Seeing two precious, 5-week old babies. Thank you to their parents for bringing Justin and Jayden! They are darling!!

  • Seeing au pairs and host families getting to know each other, and each other's au pairs and host families (does that make sense?). I hope everyone feels like they actually know who else is in our cluster, beyond just names and phone numbers on a sheet of paper!

Thanks again to everyone who came!!

Au Pairs in attendance: Gaby, Isa, Vero, Laetitia, Kirsten, and Audrey

Newsletter: Sept. 2010

Welcome to September! School is now in full swing, the weather is starting to cool down, and the stores are full of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and, yes, even Christmas. Between now and the New Year, we spend a lot of time preparing for, enjoying, and cleaning up after these holidays, but don't let the hype distract you from enjoying the beautiful weather days this month has in store for us! Be sure to take advantage of this time to enjoy going to the park or even just talking a walk down your street before the weather turns cold and we start focusing on indoor activities.

This Month: Host Family and Au Pair Day
Come join us for a pizza party at The Little Gym at The Village of Providence on Friday, September 24th 5:30pm - 7:30pm.

Happy Birthday!
