Kate is still working two days per week. So when Kate’s in the office, Lucy is in the primary care of a neighbor. The woman is a former elementary school teacher who stays at home and home-schools her 7 year old daughter. Not only do the babysitter and her daughter keep Lucy busy daily, the babysitter’s mother is often at home, thus meaning Lucy is often in the care of three generations of females from a local family that has been in the neighborhood for nearly 20 years.
Here’s Lucy with Victoria, getting some lessons in how to play with dolls.
Here’s Lucy with the grandmother of the family.
Part of Victoria’s education involves the vigorous study of music and playing the piano. Lucy gets to sit in on lessons.
