We are a family of four, living in West Central Alberta, Canada, in a farming community near Edmonton. As a single mother with a business, I am looking for some help with odds and sods around the home, but mainly help with child care.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Living in a small farming community, there will be trips to the family farm to help out and explore. This may include herding goats and building fences. In town, where we reside, we have walking trails and a host of community events and festivals that are ongoing, especially during the spring and summer. If you happen to be visiting us during July and August, we set work aside for the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, for which we have been volunteering the last 10 years as a family (there maybe an opportunity to volunteer as well, if your stay is long enough). Located near the Rocky Mountains, there are opportunities to hike and climb, as well as visit the hot springs. Some wilderness camping and exploring. We are looking forward to inviting new people into our home to be a part of the family, share in good food and experience life in west central Alberta.
The primary concern is child care and food preparation. Basic housework and maybe occasionally mowing the lawn. My daughters all speak French, so French is an asset, as we aim to keep learning. A drivers license is a huge asset, as outings often are more than walking distance from the house (vehicle provided).

I drive to the city almost daily, so lots of opportunities to check out Edmonton and the sights there. There is a variety of bicycles to choose from and miles of trails to bike or walk locally. In our community there are several festivals and local events that take place in the spring summer and fall, along with a weekly local farmers market.
