  • Beschreibung


    My family of 5 lives outside Saint Louis, Missouri in the United States. Our home is in the suburbs a 45 minute drive from the city. Our family includes my husband, myself, 3 kids (13 year old, 5 year old, and 3 year old), and an energetic puppy. We homeschool our 3 children. We love to meet new people and other cultures. We love to share and spend time together. We are happy to host families in a private guest room downstairs!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are excited to have you as a part of our family! We love to share and meet other people. We are excited to share our culture and language with you. We speak English and are learning Spanish. Mom (Beth) also speaks some Chinese and American Sign Language.

    Saint Louis is a fantastic city with lots to do and see! The zoo, science center, and many other tourist attractions are free! Our family keeps busy with site seeing in the city about once a week. You would be welcome to join us!

    There is a great deal to see and experience in Madison County, IL as well! We volunteer often at a local horse rescue and the humane society. I run a website with information about our local community and would be happy to help you find things to do!

    We will consider having more than one person stay with us, but only have 20 hours of work per week at our home which is only enough for one person. Our children (3 years, 5 years, and 13 years) would love friends to play with and our homeschool groups would love to learn about your culture!

    My husband and I would like help with teaching our kids about the world. We ask that you teach lessons for a few hours a week. (Lessons would be guitar, language, history, science, cooking, or other things you are excited to share). We would like help with cooking and cleaning up after meals and keeping the yard\ house tidy. You would be helping no more than 20 hours a week.

  • Unterkunft


    We have a nice private guest room and bathroom in our basement. The bedroom has a queen bed, dressers, and closet. There is a private bathroom with a shower, sink, and toilet. There is a small guest "kitchen area" with a sink, counter, and cabinets. Our family sleeps upstairs and spends the majority of our time upstairs so you would have the downstairs to yourself unless the kids were in the playroom, you were taking care of kids, or you invited us.

    You will share the fully equipped upstairs kitchen, living room, playroom, and yard with our family. If you are interested in playing guitar, I can provide one for you to use and a smaller children's guitar to teach with.

    Our family eats together a few days a week and we can work together to figure out cooking\eating schedules. We eat a healthy American diet. Beth is vegetarian. We have a small garden and often eat from it. We can share 3 meals per day of a typical diet. You are welcome to all the basics in the home such as condiments, sugar, coffee, salt, pepper, rice, beans, bananas, eggs. Sometimes we all eat together, other times everyone makes what they feel like eating. Please use common sense in regards to cleanliness and cleaning up after yourself.

    I am learning as I go with this as well so let's be open and clear about expectations etc. I am sure each work away experience and each individual will be very different and I am open to taking the positive from each situation. At the same time we do all have to live together so we have to communicate openly and be respectful.

    We would like to start with shorter stays and then extend if we find it works well.
