Today we had our home visit and interview with our local coordinator. She wanted to see the room meant for the au pair. Too bad it was filled (and I mean filled!) to capacity with all of J's Legos, toys, Wii game pieces, books and a bunk bed, not to mention all the furniture that was in his bedroom before we re-did it and had yet to go through it all and move it back out! That's a weekend project in itself! But we assured her it would get done and the au pair would have a nice room and plenty of privacy since she'd be the only person on the main floor of the house. It was nice to talk to the coordinator as she was an au pair herself many years ago. She is from Germany and now lives with her husband in the States. The meeting really got us thinking. We're leaning towards going through with this!
