My name is Miwa. I love where I live (therefore you'll like it too). I'm fairly versatile so as far as being in each other's space goes, we can probably find some common ground to level on :) I have two lovely daughters. The oldest is a smart, sweet, and artistic 8 year old and the youngest is 1.5, has a sunny disposition and loves to be outside. We also have a dog, a cat and two horses, and we live on an acreage outside a small community in the Rocky Mountains. We have an outdoorsy, healthy, creative, easy going lifestyle.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Our community is small and remote but very friendly and genuine. The mountains are just beyond the doorstep where there are world class hiking and biking trails. Our daily life is mindful of the environment, of the food we eat, and we do our best to keep a balance of both physical and creative activities. Some summer activities that we look forward to sharing with you is a groovy Music Festival (August), horseback riding, hiking, biking, and neat community get togethers.
We are looking for a happy, holistic, enthusiastic, creative female to stay with us for the summer. I will need light household help but most importantly someone who is fun and responsible who can enjoy the company of my daughters while I am working. (I work part time)
By the way, I checked a lot more boxes than what I expect you to do. Besides hanging with the kids, your activities can largely reflect your own interests.
We have a guest bedroom and meals will be predominantly vegetarian. I manage fairly well in the kitchen but would be thrilled if our guest had an interest in cooking or in learning how to cook. We are fairly open and adaptable and hope that you will feel at home living with us.
The town is small enough to get around by bike and the people are very easy to meet and befriend. Some local places and events you could look up to get a better idea of what the area is like are: Mount Robson Provincial Park, Hermit Thrush Cabin, Robson Valley Music Festival, and Valemount Bike Park. Jasper National Park is 120 km away.
