A hard sad day

I just had my last day at my job. It been a hard day. I ´m looking forward to having 3 weeks vacation and to start on my new job 1 August, but it was so hard to say goodbye to all the kids.
When all 80 kids song the goodbye and thank song ( a Danish children song) for me at our weekly community singing I couldn’t hold the tears back. It was so sweet. Later a little boy , and his parent came to say goodbye. I have been taking care of this little boy since his was 10 month old and now his is 3 years. When he came to say goodbye, he gave me a little paint he had made himself and I just broke into tears, then his parent start crying too. It was just so emotional, but I guess that just the hard part off the job, when you work with kids.
The painting is going to hang in my scraproom. It´s a sweet memories to have.

By the way we sat some traps up . We already caught five but unfortunately it wasn´t water voles as I thought . It were rats, so we have been talking to the noxious animal control and as soon the rain stop they will come and control our sewer. I just hate those animals.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hej Lisette.
Sikke da en ugen du har haft - først en hård følelsesladet afsked med alle "dine" børn - og så finde ud af at i har rotter! Jeg håber dæleme de er væk til jeg kommer da ;-)
Har i fået meget regn? vi har ikke fået SÅ meget - det har da regne men ikke sådan helt vildt.

Nu skal du nyde din ferie rigtig meget med eller uden rotter og så glæde dig til dit nye job. Tænk tilbage på dit gamle job med et smil og tænk "jeg gjorde sgu en forskel for de unger".

Jeg forstår 100% hvor svært det er at sige farvel til de små poder! De kryder jo under huden på en. Flot at du fik det lille maleri - og ja, det er et flot minde at have fra det søde barn! :)

... og ROTTER!?? OJ! Ikke så morsomt, nej. Håber rottebekæmperen kan gøre noget ved det.

Rigtig god ferie til dig, Lisette og jeg håber du får en super start på dit nye job! :)
