  • Description


    We are a loving family with 3 kids ages 1, 6 and 10. Mom stays home with the kids and homeschools and dad recently took a job about an hour commute both ways so we are looking for some support with schooling or babysitting.

    In the past we have been a host home for 2 years for foreign workers and also helping out various friends when they need a place to stay.

    Dad comes from a family of 10 and Mom from a family of 5 and we love having people around to share life with.

    Ottawa is ranked in the top 3 places to live in the world and we live in one of the nicer areas in Ottawa. You’ll get to meet us as well as be able to explore our nations capital city.
