We are a multicultural family : North and South American /English /Spanish... and also a "family numerosa": Mom, Dad, 3 kids (9, 7 and 4) and a cat.
We live in the heart of a small village, just 5 minutes from Sitges (beach) and 30 mins by train to centre of Barcelona.
We love the outdoors, going for a hike through the vineyards, cycling and camping before it gets too cold.
Dad is very busy with work and at times is away for most of the week. Mom is dedicated to the childcare and managing the home, and would start on her online Masters this Autumn.
The eldest children go to a private homeschooling project from 9 to 13h and the youngest to a rural nursery. We are looking for an alternative education and healthier lifestyle.
The kids love to role play, have pirate and sword games, climbing the neighbors trees, need lots of outdoor air and play before heading back home. However, they also enjoy being indoors and setting the train set, making things with building blocks, doing arts and craft.
