    Special edit: Now we are most of searching for person how could work like "aupair" during schools summer vacation 1.6-15.8, also shorter possible staying with us. If we have this nasty covid-19 situation, we trust that you can still come here. Write us, we tell more. :)

    We are normal finn family in North Savo, with own house and half hectar piece of land around us. We live at little and peaceful town (or village), by walking is possible to see a lot in this town.

    We was farmers. Then we changed to be road maintenance workers with some little farm. If you read feedbacks you will notice it. But like I said we moved from Kainuu to Savo.

    Then, we have three kids. Kids is born at 4/2010, 10/2011 and 10/2016. So we hope that you get along with kids some while. Our kids is very pretty and nice most of the time but of course they is kids and sometime difficult handle.

    Here is very beautiful nature and landscapes. Here is lots of scene that could come good pictures. We have fresh nature.

    We can take one person to be with us, just a moment we are not hoping couples. We have only one room and one bed from workawayer.

    What you can do with us:
    - normal housekeeping works
    - take care of kids
    - feed and take care of dog
    - can involve some projects what we have like repairing our house with us
    - during free days have adventure in forest or have trip to some places close us.
