    Hello Hello :-) !!! Help needed from July 11th on for 2/ 3 weeks :-)
    We are looking for somebody happy, lively, dynamic and who really loves lively children to take care of our 2 kids.
    We are a French family with two kids: Léonie is 11 and Charles is 8.
    I'm going to tell you more about us :-)
    First, where we live: we live in a house in La Brède, it is 10 min from Bordeaux by train. You will have your own room. The area is very nice. You will have free time on your own to explore it!
    Then what we are looking for: well we are looking for somebody to stay with us and the plan is: I want you to do activities with my kids, play with them, paint, draw, sing...teach them English a lot ans speak English a lot with them and also help me around the house. Basic stuff like tidying the kids' bedrooms and the kitchen, living room...
    You will have 2 days off, free to do whatever you want ;-) visit the region :-) Bordeaux is a wine region, a lot of vineyards, beaches are 1 hour away from our house too!

    We already had a lot of workaway girls. The girls who stayed at our place had gone to toulouse for the weekend to visit more about France but you can also stay with us or spend a day or two in Arcachon, Ste Emillion...
    so basically I need your help to take care of my kids, with me most of the time;-) and help me a bit with the house, tidying the house and of course teach them a lot of English!
    I also want to practice my English with you ;-) I'm an English teacher!
    We are looking for somebody to do activities at home with the kids, teach them English, songs...
    Tell me if you have questions :-)
