Catching Up: Beth's New Place

The end of October, we were presented with an opportunity for a change in Beth's life.  Some friends who had had Beth babysit for them, were finishing their basement into an apartment, and were praying about Beth coming to live with them (for free) and being their nanny two days a week (for free) for their three children, ages 5, 3, and 1.5.  We prayed a lot about it as a family, and felt that God had prepared her for this opportunity to be a blessing to this family.  So the first part of December, Beth moved into this apartment about a mile from us.  She has trained alongside the previous babysitter, because the littlest member of the family has diabetes and is on an insulin pump.  
Behind the desk is the stairway that comes downstairs from the Rs house upstairs.  Some of the furniture, the Rs are letting Beth use, like the couch, ottoman, table and chairs, bed-frame,  dresser, and large wall hangings.  They have been very generous and kind to Beth.  Mr. R did a great job finishing the basement.
