Farewell to our dear friend Anita!

It is the middle of the summer and sadly but at the same time happily we have to say good bye to Anita Pinzon! She came at the end of January 2017 and after all this time she is leaving with a big smile and good memories with her family back in Colombia! Lets see what she said in our short but interesting interview!

20170903_163959

What places did you visit and which one you like the most? Well, I had the opportunity to visit some states around the country like Michigan, California and Miami and some others but honestly I don’t have a favorite cause in most of them I had fun!

What was your favorite way to spend your time in the USA? Since I didn’t work on weekends most of the time I traveled with my friends in order to have fun and try new things!

Whats your favorite thing of being a au pair? I can say that I had the chance to live and share memories with an amazing host family, I was able to improve my English skills and of course enjoy my time with my host kids.

 

How do you like the experience  being a part of an American Family? I really like this experience cause I was involved in the culture by speaking their language, trying their food and of course their life style in a real environment.

 

Finally, Anita said that she wishes us all the best in our lives (including the cluster, LAR and Go Au Pair), and that she will keep us in her hearth forever!

Thank you so much for your words Anita, we wish you the best! We are sure that your family in your country can not wait to see you! We hope you had a great time with us and keep it up my friend!

A limo ride with my host kid!

Happy Spring! Summer is coming up and the weather is very warm and lovely!
Today my story will be about my limo! Yes, Mariella, my older host kid, and I call it limo! Maria from Ukraine

Every morning my princess Mariella and I have the coolest ride to school! No, it’s not a car, it is a bike with a track for kids! It has a windows there so Mariella can look around during our trip to school. Mariella has a protection from the bugs so no one can disturb her, and she has place for bottle of water there!Maria Bucks County Au Pair

We are having so much fun riding this cool Limo.  All our neighbors know us and they are friendly waving and saying hi to us. School personal saying, “oh, limo has arrived!” It is really cool and helpful for us  – instead of 15-20 min walking – it takes like 7-8 min riding ! It’s really good exercise and helps me wake up in the morning.

When I come to pick up Mariella from school every single parent wants to open the limo and they all  say WOW! That is so cool!Maria Au Pair Ukraine

Thank you my host mom Alla Gerzon for such a nice gift! We love it!

International picnic with the dishes from twelve countries!

The next Au Pair meeting of Go Au Pair cluster in the Philadelphia and Bucks County area – international food picnic – will be on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the Independence National Historical Park, 6th St & Market St, Philadelphia, PA 19106. All Au Pairs will bring a dish from their countries! There will be dishes from 12 countries in our Sunday picnic menu or maybe even more because many Au Pairs planed to bring their friends. We will test variety of dishes from China, Colombia, South Africa and Ecuador -since we have many Au Pairs from those countries. Also, we will have an opportunity to try dishes from Hungary, El Salvador, Brazil, Ukraine, Peru, France, Germany and Argentina!

The Au Pair program is a cultural exchange program. Go Au Pair cluster meetings give the Au Pairs chance to meet other Au Pairs from around the world and learn/share their unique culture. We will enjoy the Au Pair international cuisine- the food represents the traditions, stories, and geography and we learned a lot simply trying different food.Au Pair farewell picnic Independence National Historical Park 2

There is also a great opportunity to learn about American history and culture because  we will have the picnic right across the Independence National Historical Hall in the center city of Philadelphia. The Independence Hall is known as the birthplace of the United States. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were signed there. Our international Au Pair team will enjoy the historical Landmark and great company of friends.

Au Pairs will have fun sharing the experience, taking many photos and creating new memories. After the meeting, they will visit many historical places together.

Welcome to the cluster, Arminda!

Soledad Araujos (Arminda) is from El Salvador, joining our cluster in a couple days, which is great for several reasons:

  1. We did not have a new au pair in a while. 
  2. She is going to the au pair of my Host Mom‘s brother! This is very exciting!

18318139_1873037702934292_494796990_o

She wanted to be an au pair, because she thinks, that taking care of children is one of her passions, so that could make her and other people happy!

She likes going to the beach and listening to music. Sometimes she goes to the gym and to the lake close to her grandma’s house! She is interested in improving her English, getting to know more about the culture in the US and of course to make friends from different countries!

Her friends says, she is responsible, patient and honest. She, also thinks, that she is good at teaching English.18318035_1873037526267643_251446801_o.jpg

Arminda would like to travel around the World with her little sister, that way they could visit Paris to see the Eiffel Tower.

On the weekends, she likes to go to her grandma’s house and swim the entire evening with her cousins and old friends. They talk about their plans  and experiences they had during the week.18280767_1873038532934209_1443411727_n
