Well we really took a gamble when I agreed to have a total stranger from France come live with us for the summer. But I have to say Paulin has been such a blessing and a joy to have in our home. I was not sure how he would interact with the kids, or know how to deal with my oldest sons developmental delays. But he helps me in the kitchen, plays with the kids, and finds joy and laughter in little Matthews crazy stories and ideas.
Last week he mowed the lawn for us, and let little Matthew help him the whole time (snow boots and all). The kids are going to go thru withdrawls when he leaves. We will be left with a smaller grocery budget, but our hearts will be sad as we have come to love him as a part of the family.
