  • Description


    Hello ! Welcome home, in our funny family ! We are just 6 girls a home !! 2 mothers of 4 children : Maxine, 6 years, Sarah-Lou 4 years, Billie and Olive 4 months.
    We live in a small town near Namur, in a old farmhouse, a little under construction. We have a big garden with a lot of things.
    With the twin’s born, life is changing, and we need arms to help ! So we are looking for someone to help Pauline with the kids. Marie is working all the day, Max and Sue are going at school. Add to all that, a big vegetables garden to prepare, chikens and ducks to feed, and a lot of cooking ;) Our project is food autonomy, zero waste, maximum DIY, nature contact, learning foreign languages.
    At home, it screams, it cries, it sings, it lives... We already host an Islandic student for 10 months, and we are making documents to host an au pair girl next fews months.
    So if the adventure tempts you, welcome home as soon as possible !
    See you !

    Hello! Bienvenue chez nous, dans notre funny family! Et oui, nous sommes 6 filles à la maison! 2 mamans de 4 petites poulettes: Maxine, 6ans, Sarah-Lou, 4 ans, Billie et Olive 4 mois!
    Nous vivons dans un petit village à 20 minutes de Namur, dans une ancienne fermette encore un peu en travaux. Avec l'arrivée des twins, la vie à la maison s'organise mais on manque de bras! Nous sommes donc à la recherche d'une personne pour aider Pauline, la journée, avec les filles. Marie travaille, Maxine et Sarah-Lou vont à l'école. à cela s'ajoute un grand potager à préparer tout doucement, des poules et canards à soigner, et beaucoup beaucoup de cuisine à faire,... Nous visons l'autonomie alimentaire, le zéro déchet, un max de DIY, et de contact nature.
    Ici ça crie, ça pleure, ça rit, ça chante, ça vit! Nous avons déjà accueilli un étudiant islandais dans la famille pour 10 mois l'année passée et sommes dans les démarches pour accueillir une fille au pair dans les mois à venir.
    Bref, welcome home :D
