We are an easy-going, multi-cultural family of 5 members (Mama, papa, an 18-year-old teenage girl, and two Boys, 15 and 13 years old respectively). Mama and children come from Guatemala, papa comes from the Netherlands, but we speak Spanish, English, and German. We have a dog and a cat.
We live in a small town called Rinchnach in the Bavarian Woods. The children´s daily activities include going to School, doing homework, play sports, and share with friends.
Papa works as a Website designer and Mama is a Zumba instructor. At this Moment we keep pretty busy and therefore it would be wonderful to have some help around the house for a couple of months.
