Full-time hours

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old. I have babysat for infants all the way up to 13 years old. I babysat for one family every summer for five years. They had a 8 year old girl and a five year old boy when I started. The boy has Autism. This made my heart grow for special education, which is why I graduated a semester later than my classmates.I grew to love this family.We went on bike rides, picnic, we put on plays, made arts and crafts and read. I miss them and still talk to them. I have been so blessed watching these amazing children grow up!
