Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband Alex and I are traveling with our two kids since early December 2015. We will be travelling in the US for the next 6 months and travel in Canada after that. He is a computer engineer taking a break after a contract. I used to work at a daycare center in management.
We have a blog if you want to see some pictures :
It's in French though :)
Our two kids : Charlotte (7) and Leo (9) are really curious kids eager to learn another language and well behave.

Lovely family

We enjoyed this family...and their dog. The kids were happy and fun to be around. Traveling seems to suit them.

Lovely family

We enjoyed meeting this family and were so impressed with their travel with two kids and a dog. Good for them. The children were outstanding - quite self sufficient and charming. And the dog was cute too! They are welcome anytime.

Sweet Family; Super Nice!

Really enjoyed meeting Melissa and her family! They were very accommodating to my schedule for arrival time as I had a small window to greet them and make them feel welcome. They were very polite and friendly and we had a lovely chat before going out separate ways for the evening. Highly recommend them!

Extremely nice family ~ Children polite and cheerful ~ Quiet ~ Friendly ~&~ Fun

Arrived late in afternoon ~ After settled in opened the gate for the side yard so Kids and Pup could run. Boy did they RUN. Played tag among the trees for about an hour ~ Long time since I have heard such giggling. Had nice visit with parents until well after dark.

This AM Melissa said the Kids had slept in so guess they enjoyed the exercise. Later Kids ~ Pup ~ ~& ~ Pop were all playing tag in the side yard. Enjoyed the visit very much. This family is welcome back anytime.

We were pleasantly surprised when the family came to the door just before leaving with a gift of several 'flavors' of homemade soap. Very pleasant unassuming family.

A very nice couple with two well behaved children. I wish them a happy

Nice couple

They stayed with us for several days with their 2 adorable children. They were mostly gone during the day and came back in the evening.

Very pleasant and enjoyable to talk too.

Come back anytime.
