Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello! We are on a horse farm in California but only 10 minutes from the town of Morgan Hill which is a large growing suburb…has all the big stores and a cute downtown area with cafe/restaurants/shops/parks/dinner theatre/etc.
There is town of Gilroy south of us with similar attractions but not as cute other than an old downtown street a few blocks long. Gilroy area has a community college if you’re interested in classes. We are only here 9 or 10 months of the year and split our time with our cabin in the north woods of Minnesota on a private lake and 120 acres of pristine woodland where we swim, fish, hunt, visit family and enjoy the nature, fresh air and fall colors.
We’re looking for someone more interested in rural/country life, traveling with horses and kids across country, and comfortable around large animals. We have plenty to keep us busy with our animals and kids. I’m a stay at home mom, planning to home school the kids. I also have a dog and 4 horses to care for and ride.
We’ve had 2 amazing nannies in the past and looking into the live-in option since we have a detached cottage and would appreciate a more flexible schedule and someone willing to travel with our family.
We are in no hurry and willing to wait until we find a great fit. Not many people are comfortable or experienced with hunting and horses.
