and her name is Mirta. Way back when Elias started at Calvary, she was his teacher. He cried all day for the first 3 weeks (I worked then, and my nanny had just sadly left us) and Mirta loved him. Who am I kidding?! She more than loved him, she made him one of her own. This woman is simply amazing and we are so grateful for her.
Mirta is from Argentina and for some reason she has adopted our family. Through the years she has watched out for our children, made up homemade empanadas and delivered them to us fresh out of the oven. She’s spent many days at the soccer field with the kids. And now she takes care of Ruby in that same preschool class 3 mornings a week. She is in every sence of the word, a grandma to our children. I know that Calvary is not just a place to learn, it’s a place that our children have been able to create relationships that last a lifetime. This is a recent picture of Elias and these days, It’s one of the few times he looks like an Angelito.
Thank you Mirta for all yo do.
