A little about myself, I am a mom to a teenage son, and I could not ask for a better child. He is a straight A student and gets involved with anything he can during and after school. I have 5 Cocker Spaniels and a Golden Retriever. So animals are not a problem for me. I am with my high school sweet heart this year 2015 will make 16 years that we have been together. Around 6 months after our son was born I started keeping kids in my home. I knew that I didn't want my son growing up alone, so having kids here helped his social learning as well with other stuff small children needed. While they were here we would play outside, I would read to them, color, draw, feed, I have small pools for the summer time so they could swim, workbooks as they got older, etc. When our child was about 4 years I stopped watching kids in my home not because I wanted to life happens, parents couldn't pay or moving stuff like that. So I found a job and loved it, but sadly they closed the doors so I was looking for another job to support my family. I found the family I am with now, I have been there for 5 years. They have 3 kids, 2 boys and a girl ages now from 6-10. First year, I had all 3 of them with me and over the yrs they have started school. So now I am part time. Over the past 5 years we have colored, play, swim, bookwork, homework, play dates, play games, draw, crafts, paint, and read. Now they are reading on their own to me but I was always reading to them well I still do with the youngster. Sadly at this time, I have to find either a part time or full time job because the mom has lost her job does not need me, but they have decided to keep me at least til school. So I may have plenty of time to find a new family to help. I do cleaning for the family while I do that I teach the kids how to clean up after themselves. I believe that it helps them understand and appreciate the things they have. I am all about having fun and a good time, but I also believe that kids need a little responsibilities to have them grow into wonderful young people and then to adults. I run errands as well for them when they need me to. Over the summer, I also help a family with one son because the mom was pregnant she needed help so she could rest. He was 3 and we walked, played, color, and more. This family was short term at the time. The family I am with now has 2 kids a 3-yr-old boy and a 6-month-old girl. They are great kids and the family is awesome to be with. We have fun with going outdoors.

Amanda has taken care of our two children (now ages 13 and 9) for three and a half years. She has been extraordinarily flexible with our changing needs over the years. She worked longer hours during the summer when kids were out of school, and after school hours during the school year (with one longer day per week to clean our home). She kept track of school calendars (early dismissals and delayed openings) and worked her schedule around our childcare needs. Her prior recommendations attest to her expertise in entertaining younger kids, but she also excels at planning activities for older children. She plays board games, takes walks to the park and the pool, and plans trips bowling, trampolining and other fun things! She is great at getting the kids away from the screens and out of the house! She also provided reliable, safe transportation to many soccer practices over the years! In addition to childcare, Amanda did numerous tasks around the house. She cleaned the house and did
