Au Pairs share their smiles.

All people smile in the same language. Proverb.

Go Au Pair agency sponsored the FRUA  Holiday Party. Several Au Pairs from Philadelphia, Bucks County and close NJ and I volunteered for  this event.

They shared their time and smiles with FRUA families and kids adopted from Russian speaking countries.

It was a great cultural experience for Au Pairs, who came from Germany, Brazil, El Salvador and Panama.  Now they live with American families, take care of the kids and learn about American culture. They also have a unique opportunity to learn more about different countries.

The FRUA party was great. It really was. Everyone learned a lot about Russian culture tradition and heritage there.

Russian speaking kids prepared a special concert and then they played together with kids adopted from Russia and former Soviet Union countries.

The families enjoyed delicious Russian food and a huge cake that Go Au Pair agency kindly presented for this special event.

It was a very special time for all of us.  Au Pairs enjoyed painting on children’s face. Several Au Pairs are experienced face painters. Kids loved the face painting that Au Pairs did for them.

Au Pairs were busy helping with preparations for the event, playing with kids, and smiling.

There is a well-known Russian song ” Smile”

A smile will make a dull day brighter,
A smile will make a rainbow appear in the sky…
Communicate your smile,
And it will come back to you more than once.

Au Pairs volunteered and smiled, smiled and smiled because smiles are contagious!   


Au Pairs’ Chinese New Year celebration

Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency are going to celebrate the Chinese New Year in Chinatown in Philadelphia, which is the nation’s fourth largest Chinatown.

The Chinese New Year is the oldest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese year 4710 begins on Jan. 23, 2012. Read more:

We will observe the Year of the Dragon with delicious foods, music and fun. We are going to learn Chinese heritage, traditions and culture. I may finally learn  how to use chopsticks :-).

The Au Pair program helps Au Pairs to learn the American culture. Au Pairs have many activities in historical and cultural places where they get together, get to know each other better, make friends and have fun.

But here is much more. This amazing program helps Au Pairs also learn about other cultures and celebrate holidays that are unique to Au Pairs countries. For example, an Asian au-pair can bring  the unique Asian culture and host family get to experience the world without leaving their house. :-).

Right now there are Au Pairs from 9 different countries: China, Brazil, Ukraine, Panama, France, Colombia, El Salvador, South Africa, Russia in Go Au Pair’s cluster in Philadelphia, Bucks County and part of NJ. We will  use the opportunity to celebrate many holidays, make up the events and learn more about different countries.

Our next meeting will be the Brazilian Festival with a costume party, Brazilian food cooking class, costume  and dance competition, Brazilian music and much more. Then we are going to volunteer for children adopted from Russia and learn all about Russian culture, tradition and heritage.

Chinese people say that a celebration of  Chinese New Year attracts prosperity, abundance, success and good fortune  into our life.  Come join us if you need good luck in the New Year!
