    *********WHILE THE COUNTRY IS DEALING WITH COVID ISSUE WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY WORKAWAYERS*********






    We are a multicultural family of 5
    We are from Israel, Iceland and France
    At home we mainly speak in english but also french, Hebrew and Icelandic.
    The kids are 7, 2years old and 9months old
    They love spending most of their time outside playing around the farm.
    The 2 oldest one are going to school from 7:30 to 4:30
    We live about 1h from Reykjavik and 20minutes from Selfoss in a farm
    We have dogs, cat and chicken
    We work at the farm but also travel further for work in the winter (just for the day)
    We live in a remote area surrounded by beautiful nature and are at a good spot for Northern lights

    Its a great safe place to be with a lot of beauty around.
    Short walks possible around the farm and with the kids
    We are a very flexible family and are happy to spend time with you and show you Iceland as well as giving free time and manage your own things.

    Hi
    I am Frosti and I am 9months old.
    During the day mum and dad are working around the house and need someone to stay with me play with me.
    During the day I eat, sleep and need my diapers to be changed.
    There is a lot of free time during the day (I usually take 2 big naps) during which mum and dad need help with the house chores.
    Here is a example of what they may ask you to help with:
    Hoover the house daily
    Clean up the kitchen (empty the dishwasher)
    Fold the laundry

    There are some animals around to play with,

    Sometimes mom and dad may ask you to pick up the kids from school if you are comfortable with it and playing with them after school.

    In our Icelandic family we like outdoor activity and play outside all day long.
    We (the little kids) are kept away from screens like TV and phone.

    A day in Frosti Life often starts from 6:30am until 4:30pm (in the winter)
    When we are back home from work you are welcome to stay with us and share some family time or walk around the pretty neighbourhood.
    During the weekend you are off and can spend it relaxing, sight seeing or share some family time with us.
