    Description

    Hello
    We are a busy Canadian family of Five. Myself and husband have three children and we work full time. I work in an immigrant welcome centre that helps newcomers settle into the area with services like English classes and employment services. I keep the same holidays as my children. My husband has a managers position in a roofing company. We both have weekends off. We have a 2 sons and a daughter. Our children are 10, 12, & 14. They attend school during the week and enjoy extra curricular activities like softball, swimming and army cadets in the evenings during the week. We rent a large home with 5 bedrooms on the edge of a small town close to buses and shopping. We have a small dog, and we raise rabbits to eat and even have some chickens for fresh eggs. I enjoy looking after my family and cooking healthy meals from our vegetable garden. We enjoy camping on our holidays.

    I love my family but it is hard to spend nice quality time with them when we are working so hard. My husband and I feel it is important for our children to help. They will continue to be responsible for their own duties. I am hoping to find a mature couple who can give us some help with a painting barn project and general overall help around the house and garden.
