    Description

    *️*️*️*️*️We are not accepting workaway until after January 2020.

    We are a small family in Chicago with big hearts. We are a working mom with 1 elementary aged child. We often host high school exchange students. Although we are in a big city, we love backyard chickens, our medium sized dog, hamsters and a big tank of goldfish. We have a variety of garden plants inside and out. Our dog is a friendly, so anyone who stays should be comfortable with a 20 lb dog who wants to be your friend.

    Note: we only intend to host a few workawayers a year (not back to back) because we like to travel ourselves.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Chicago is a world class city with great architecture, interesting museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, restaurants, nightlife, and so much to see and do. If you're an active person, during warmer months our lakefront is amazing (it's a 3 mile bike or run from our home to Foster Beach and a 19 mile lakefront trail).

    Help

    I would ask for some general house help: cooking, cleaning, watering plants, light yard work (it's a very small yard and a small back patio) such as raking leaves, sweeping the patio, feeding chickens and bringing in eggs, hamster care, and walking the our dog. Also help with other homeowner maintenance projects (sanding old wooden windowsills, washing windows, sweeping garage, etc).

    We could also use some help Monday - Friday for "getting everyone ready and off to school" from 6:45 - 8:45 am (5 days per week).
