Our family is big... a mother, a father, a 11 year old girl, a 6 year old girl and a 18 months baby boy. Oh, and a cat, small one. Our 11 year old is now on the 6th grade, she is very responsible and helps a lot with the baby and other house chores. She plays violet (just starting) and likes gymnastics The 6 year old just started the 2nd grade now. She is very funny, always wanting to play and adores rope skipping. The baby... well, the baby is adorable and very, very friendly. I think of my children as respectful and cooperative. Now the adults... me and my husband are both teachers (37 and 47 years old). I teach pre-schoolers, he teaches arts to older students. He is also an artist, painter. As parents, I am the bad cop, he is the good cop. Most of the times, our team works. We don´t have a very frenetic social life, but we have lots of friends and a close family that comes to dinners or parties every now and then. Me and my husband speak several languages, some better than others, but we can speak english very well, french and spanish.
We are looking forward to find someone to bring some fresh and new culture and traditions to our family. We are looking for someone with lots of energy and good mood as we are a big and happy family (with bad days sometimes, of course). We live in a small and cosy town in Portugal, with one of the youngest populations in the country and a very interesting cultural agenda where you can attend art fairs, music festivals, plays, workshops, visit museums. Here you can learn how portuguese people live, their gastronomy, culture... and the sun... we have lots of sunny days!
