Transitions are tough, and we're in one right now. School ended last week, many of Grace's friends have gone to their home countries for the summer (we're the only ones not traveling at ALL this summer!) OR have moved/are moving away for good, and Rose is in Kenya for a couple weeks. There is no normal routine or schedule, and they (okay, maybe it is mostly ME) do not function that well under such circumstances. So today we're trying out a "substitute" nanny/housekeeper to see if that adds some more stability to the day. And even though we have had three consecutive days of the worst possible behavior, it looks like they might be settling down a bit. And they better! Or it is going to be a very loooooong vacation before school starts again on August 13th!
They "look" sweet, don't they?
