My husband and I have 3 easy going children ages 12, 10, and 9. We have a Bernese Mountain puppy and 2 cats. We live on beautiful Vancouver Island just north of Victoria and enjoy all outdoor activities including camping, hiking, biking, visits to the ocean, water sports on the lake, and playing games at the nearby playgrounds.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have a small fenced area in our yard that we would like to build some raised garden beds as well as some general maintenance and gardening around our 1 acre yard. We would also like to expose our children to other cultures and languages.
You have a choice of using our 32 foot camper or using one of the children's bedrooms in the house.
We have bikes that you can use. There are buses that travel to Victoria or north up island to other smaller cities. We live near many fantastic hiking and biking trails. We would also like to extend an invitation to join our family on many of our weekend adventures around the island!
