Experienced Babysitter: My name is Carlin Tindall and I'm in 9th grade at Merriconeag High School. I am hoping to babysit this summer, and am particularly available from the end of July to the end of the summer. I live in Durham, so the Durham/Pownal/Freeport area is most convenient, but I'm happy to go anywhere. I took the Red Cross babysitting course in 6th grade, have been babysitting since 7th grade and I like spending time with kids. References available. Please call me at 353-8800! (05-31-11)
