Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are the s, and we live in Indianola Iowa. We are 30 minutes outside of Des Moines and live directly across from a state park, so outdoor adventure is on our doorstep. We are lucky enough to live in the beautiful country, 10 minutes from the center of town with restaurants, Simpson College, and many things to do.

My name is Lily , and my husbands name is Cory. Cory just retired from the Air Force, and we live just down the road from his parents and his brother. Our children are Quin, who just turned 2, and Karl, who was born in June and is growing up quickly. They are happy children, and Quin will take you on as many outdoor adventures as you let her. You will soon see our family will become yours.

Both my husband and I work 5 days a week from home, my husband works in cyber security and I work in building COVID prevention software.

A typical day for you would start at 7:00am and end around 4:00pm. We would appreciate help with Quin and Karl during the day, and we can take the bulk of care back at night. We would be happy to help as we are home with you, but hope you can take the lead.

Our ideal au pair is very simple to describe. It is someone who will love and care for our children as if they are her own. We believe in honesty and open communication. Never hesitate to come to us if you need to ask a question or you need our help in some way.

We will not need help with any major housework, as we have a cleaning lady come every other Friday. The biggest task I would ask of you is to help me fold laundry! As a mother of two small kids I always seem to get behind on this, and a helping hand would be fantastic.

Hope all is well, and please send along any questions you may have. Welcome to our family!
