Audra and kiddos
Audra has been a mommy helper for over a year now and we are so blessed to have her as part of our life. She is home schooled, which has allowed her schedule with our family to be very flexible!
She is extrememly patient, hard working and fun to talk to. She comes over 3 days a week, during which time I go to work for a couple hours at the clinic. She also helps get lunch together, and helps me with house things if needed.
One of her many talents is her artistry. She does BEAUTIFUL drawings and charcoal drawings. Her pieces take my breath away-the detail of angles, shadows. She is very modest about her work-to say the least!
I can't count the number of times I have come home from work to see one or BOTH kids asleep in Audras arms in the recliner chair by the bay window. With Stuart she brings her singing talents, walking around the house singing him to sleep. With Nora she brings her tenderness and understanding of Nora-as she has known Nora for a year now.
The bottom photo is of Lars (Julie and Ray's son) Stuart and Nora. Julie, Ray and Lars left this afternoon back to Seward. :(
