You will find our family and community to be full of Southern charm and country fun. The house has a casual feel and host family gatherings that are full of unique local foods like: gumbo, crawfish, bar-b-que, jambalaya, hamburgers, and sweet tea. We welcome you to join our friends an family in colorful family stories and general conversations on the porch swing or around the camp fire. Our property includes a vegetable garden and the following animals: horses (trained for western speed events and trails,) two small dogs (mini Australian Shepherd & Corgi/ Jack Russell), two cats ( friendly barn cats.) We live in an old family home with an acre of land. Down our street lives many of our extended family, including both sets of grandparents. We feel blessed to have them in our daily lives and hope you do also.
We are a family of 10+ but only three people live in our home. Trent is the man of the house and loves to relax outside with an evening beer and some good music. He works for our city and is also a lead singer and guitar player in a Southern Rock/ Country band. He plays his music at local night clubs and festivals. He also loves to hunt, fish and ride his ATV or trucks. Our youngest child is an athletic All-American girl who is a true extrovert. She hates when our house is empty. Most of her free time is spent at school sport events, soccer practice or riding horses. My name Deanna I love nature, hikes, camping, and exploring cities and towns. I once dreamed of being in the Peace Core or adopting orphans but neither happened. I have found happiness in doing volunteer work locally and in Mexico, gardening, and learning new skills. I currently work with special needs children teaching and supporting them emotionally.
Outside our home lives our two grown children with spouses, and three grandchildren and two more on the way. We have a few extra children who started as exchange students and now are family. We are not part of the exchange program this year because local high school did not allow the program due to COVID. Workaway is a new adventure for us and we have hosted four guest so far.
Our workaway home is in a suburban community 45min from New Orleans and 30min from Baton Rouge the home is quite during the day which allows for online studies and independent exploration by Uber or your personal transportation. The evenings are spent enjoying life with our friends, family, or animals along with going house chores. Most weeks include small social gathering or cultural events. We are a busy bunch so get ready to live a new life.

I would love to learn a few words in your language, but pronunciation of new words is not something I master easily. Be prepared to laugh some as I try. Feel free to coach me by saying good morning in your native language and helping me learn the proper response.
