    Description

    We are a family of three in Ft. Collins, Colorado. We are very active...biking, hiking, mountain biking, dirt bikes, motorcycles, running, Crossfitters, we also have a camper and a wake surfing boat that we use on a regular basis in season. The winter season would include skiing and winter sports. We like to stay active and play.

    We have a five bedroom house and our guest would have their own private room and bathroom in the finished basement. Our home was built in 2019 and is modern with great views of the mountains.

    Only one volunteer at a time, so no couples, sorry.

    And no other pets can join. Sorry about that too
    :(

    We would prefer that someone stay for six months to a year.....and a Spanish speaker!!!

    We have lived overseas working in the Peace Corps in Mongolia and living in England. We have traveled all of the continents except Antarctica and travel on a regular basis. We have also hosted two high school aged exchange students, one from Italy and one from Spain. We used to foster children that needed parents while they find a permanent home.

    We are looking for someone fun and adventurous to live here more long term, do little house work, light cooking and also occasionally hang with our 9 year old when we bike and it's only mom and dad going. He usually joins us though. He is fun and engaging and we want him to learn Spanish as well.

    We want you to be a part of our family, not just help with easy chores. We also volunteer in our community with special needs kids and adults. No smoking will be allowed, we live a very healthy lifestyle.

    We have two cute white dogs named Bentley and Baylor. I am a dental hygienist and I teach group fitness classes at a local gym. My husband is a real estate agent. Our son is very fun and is very independent as well.

    Basically, room/board/food provided, asking for light housekeeping, cooking, occasional babysitting and that you’re speak Spanish. We bought a home in Panama and may ask that you watch the house while we go back and firth

    You would easily be able to work somewhere/remote and or study for school.

    We are looking for someone to live here for free, do mild house keeping, we are very clean and organized, do laundry once a week, maybe cook dinner here and there, we want whomever to be part of the family, come and go whenever and just help with Skyler and our Spanish.

    We had a South African gal living here that teaches at CSU, she could tell you about our family dynamics, we are easy, chill and have alot of fun.

    We have the private extra room and thought that it would be fun to have someone live with us to help just here and there and be part of our family.

    Our schedule...
    Sunday 9 am crossfit, yoga, play and hangout
    Monday thru Friday, school for Skyler, I do crossfit or teach at 9:15, depending on the day. We usually do something v outdoors in the evenings.

    Thurs/Fri I see dental patients,
    Sat Crossfit at 8 am, Skyler has sports in the morning and then we play, etc
