General descripition of our family.
We are a family living in Prato, near Florence (Tuscany - Italy). We wish to try the experience of hosting an au pair in our house, in order to have a cultural exchange and to exercise a little german or/and english language. We think is a beautiful experience to give a greater sister to our daughters!
Our family is composed by 10 elements:
4 people: dad (Lorenzo, 49 years old), mom (Alessandra, 37) and two daughters, Arianna (9) and Corinna (7);
2 kats: Sally (unknown age, more of 10), Jobo (9 years old; the original name was Joda, the name is changed due multicultural interpretations);
2 turtles: Mjolnir (5 yeras old), Durlindana (5 years old)
2 chickens: Giallina (5 years old) and Margherita (2 years old)
We are two engineers, working at the university and in a private buro, the kids are both attending the school.
We like to work with wood (wood carving and woodturning), construction of medieval musical instruments and all artistic hobbies in general.
Every time we participate in a special faires (medieval, fantasy or traditional contest). We create handmade wooden pen, magic wand (true!), musical instruments and other wooden products.
We make on WE small trips with our sidecar-motorcycle or camper, excursion (hiking) in forest, specialy we like torrenteering (walking inside the river). We like cooking, spacially Lorenzo and we often organize temes dinner.
Babysitting and creative play
The workawayer will learn some aspects of woodworking (turning and carving). Also be able to participate in all the activities of the family in order to promoting cultural exchange (language, culture, etc.). We can also teach some scientific programs: AutoCad, Matlab ...
We expect the workaway to speak principally in german or english (we prefer german) with us bacause we would like to excercise the language (expecially for the girls).
Both the girl study music, Arianna harp and Corinna guitar. We would love to have a girl who plays a musical instrument. The workaway will have to take care of our children, take them to school, a music school, playing, cook etc.
The workaway can have a single bedroom with a small balcony. In the house there are two badrooms, one is our personal (access from our bedroom), the other one is in common.
