Here are two special ladies I was fortuante enough to see on my trip! Judy is on the left and we worked together at St. Ryamond School during the years I had her two sons in my 3rd grade class! Judy was also instrumental in getting us into our home in Dublin on Santo Court. She was a huge help and a wonderful neighbor inviting me over for girl talks, shopping and jewelry making, and the most relaxing of all...hot tub soaking with strawberry daiquiris! :-)
Sofia is on the right and this is her home where the picture was taken. Sofia took care of Kyle for me when he was an infant...ALL day, every day during my last semester teaching 3rd grade. I was so torn leaving my little baby each day to go to work, but Sofia took such excellent care of him that I had peace of mind he was in the best hands! At the end of the semester I decided to leave my job to take care of Kyle, and Sofia moved back to the east coast. I cried for days when she left! BUT, she moved back, and became a big part of our lives again watching our kiddos, helping with parties and First Communion party planning! She helped decorate our home when we moved in, as well as helped us stage it and prepare it for sale when we moved! She is a very talented decorator, so if you live in the Dublin area, I can set you up with her!
These two friends are keepers, and it was wonderful to catch up on each other lives once again!! Thank you Judy and Sofia!!! :-)
