Week 1 :)

So I finished my first week at CWC on Friday. Boy, was it an eventful week. I am really loving every minute there and the staff and women are great to work with. I did a little bit of everything this week. Childcare, reception, intake of new women coming in, case managing...I even helped make dinner one night. Chicken pot pie:)
On wednesday, I did childcare all by myself all day while the staff were were in training. It was crazy but a lot of fun. I learned how much patience Allison, the normal teacher, must have. For most of the day I had 8 kids and then at the end of the day I had 10. They ranged from age 3 to 15. Here are some pics of my fun filled day with the kids.
This is Lukyan! He is 4years old and has the sweetest smile. He has become my little buddy. He will see me from across the dining room and will yell "MS. GABBY,MS. GABBY!!!!!" until his Mom makes him be quiet.
This is Taquan! He is 3 years old. He is quiet but he is mischievous at times. He loves riding the tricycle in the gym.
This is Jayana! She is Ms. Boss Lady. She's 5 and in charge. She loves having the lilttle boys, Lukyan and Taquan do what ever she doesn't work so well with the big kids.

This is a picture of most of the kids I had on Wednesday. We made lots of crafts to keep us busy because it was too hot to play outside. They are all wearing their visors that we decorated.
I love these kids! They can wear on your patience at times but they just need a little love! Please join me in praying for the kids who are staying at the Center. They each are such a blessing in my life already!
