Five Things We Enjoy: Miss Natalie

 Welcome to day of the Homeschool School Review Crew Five Day blog hop!  It's so nice to have you come for a visit.

On Day One we talked about The Joy of Working at Your Own Pace.

Today I want to talk to you about one of our favourite people.

Miss Natalie.

Oh... we like Miss Natalie.  I'll actually going running out the doors sometimes in my stocking feet to say hi to her. :)  (She ALWAYS scolds me for doing so).   She usually has a ready smile and a willingness to pass the time of day (until she needs to get going again).


You know what she does for us?

1. She talks happily with my lad.  Listening carefully to him.  She is kind to my boy.. he likes her and willingly talks to her whenever they meet.  She's a grandma and I often read posts on facebook with her spending time with them, and sometimes they tag along and play with bunnies when we're away.  

2.  She brings us books!   Lots and lots of books!!!   Many that my lad likes as well, so Natalie is a favourite around here.   Here's one she brought recently the lad and Dad will be working through together this coming year.

3. She cares for our critters whenever we are away.   Caring for the lad's snake, fish, plants, mice and cats.   Taking care of my bunnies.  Watering our gardens.   Without her we couldn't do our vacation time, do extended field trips or many other things.
4. Peace of mind.  Oh my.. Natalie is an easy lady to talk to, she shows her care in her easy smile and her honesty.   Her care for our mail packages, our critters, and us, causes us treasure her dearly.    

5. Of course you need to understand something, over the past years of Natalie being part of our five day a week life, of her lending a hand here and there, she is not just our mail lady or our vacation/field trip allower, she has become a part of our lives.  She's a dear sweet lady and I am grateful to know her.

We owe this lady a debt of gratitude.

  2. When my kids were little, we had a mail lady like your Natalie! Ours knew everyone in her delivery area and always stopped in to chat, play with my kids a bit, and deliver the day's gossip from the neighborhood along with the mail. We were so sad when she passed and it is delightful to know that there are others like her out there gracing others lives with their care and friendship. Great post!

  3. We used to have a wonderful mail carrier. When it was hot outside the girls would leave him one of their juice boxes near the mailbox.

  5. I love the idea of visiting with the mail carrier. We have a gentleman grandpa who lives next to us that we enjoy talking with and the kids enjoy visiting with him when the weather is nice and he's out in his garage.

  8. We had a wonderful mail carrier in Wichita. She thought my kids must be the smartest kids around with all the books I got in the mail! Now we have a PO Box in our small town.
