My husband and I live in western Nebraska. We have a 5 year old daughter and a 3 year old daughter. I am an avid traveler and love meeting new people.
Our family is very laid back and easy going. We do not have strict rules or strict schedules.
We eat healthy fresh prepared meals, stay active, and enjoy socializing with friends and family. Our family is currently learning Spanish and having someone that can practice with us would be a great plus. However, we do not require you to speak it.
We both work in the railroad industry and are located in a small town in the western panhandle.
Seeking female willing to lend a hand with some cooking, laundry, cleaning, organizing and language exchange.
Currently we have a downstairs basement finished with a full modern bath, a bedroom, a pool table, a movie room, all with private entry.
In the summer we grow a large vegetable garden which I would love help with. Weeding, watering, planting, and harvesting. We also have a backyard flock of 12 chickens that lay eggs. Help with chicken care, cleaning, and feeding. We also brew our own homemade komboucha. Every workaway gets a gym membership and we teach crossfit classes.

Some of our past workaways have learned several things. We taught one how to shoot guns, another how to drive a manual transmission car, and our most recent one learned how to ride a bicycle and pitch a tent. Basic gardening is another thing we've taught. We also teach crossfit classes and would love to teach you how to get into shape. Camping, hiking, and fishing area priorities in the summer time. Brandon is a very good baker and loves to bake all kind of cookies, cakes, and breads. I'm a decent cook and can teach you how to throw random things together and make them taste good. Brandon is also very artistic so we usually have art supplies on hand if you are the creative type. My brother is a musician and owns a insane amount of instruments and if you ever want to go out for a jam night or learn to play an instrument he would love to teach you. One of my hobbies is product testing if you're interested I can teach you all about that too! The girls go to school daily and enjoy time at the after school while we go to the gym. My oldest is very artistic and we would love someone to bring out her artistic abilities and introduce her to local cultural arts.
We've taken people on trips and taught them how to ski and snowboard in the winter. We also own a nice karaoke machine if you're up to that! One of our favorite past times is playing board games with the kids. Do you want to learn how to play Jenga or Monopoly?
There is so much to learn I can't even list it. But if you're into back yard sustainable chicken farming and gardening those will be the main things. We plan on hatching some fertile eggs this spring for designer chickens. Also need help with some landscaping, pruning, planting and harvesting of vegetables. Composting waste, we have an organic vermiculture bin that is fun to learn about too. Basic hippie stuff in a small town with really friendly locals!
Gardening help is not a requirement but it is also strongly preferred. Dishes, laundry, general tidying, cleaning, animal care, and organizing. We have chickens that need watered and their cages cleaned daily.
