My 11 year old son and I are seeking a wonderful young woman to come and live with us for a while in Southern Spain.

My son has always been homeschooled but lives more of what we call an "unschooling or world schooling" life.....learning from life and following his interests.....without curriculum or testing etc.. My son needs more company and someone fabulous with whom he can work on projects and enjoy life as he is super sociable and I am a single working mama who needs help with household stuff like meals and general upkeep (not a lot) and the ability to go out without my son sometimes!!...

We would both love to have someone come live with us for about 3-4 months to start, with the possibility of it extending if all of us feel so inclined (and maybe even traveling with us as we take our forays into other parts of the world several times a year), and be part of our family.

End of September/early October would be the start time ….. Room and food would be provided in exchange for becoming part of our family and sharing in this world schooling adventure with us. We live above a large gorgeous village in Andalusia on the ocean with mountains and countryside hugging us. It has a good amount of life going on - hiking, windsports and watersports, art, culture, music, sports, and wonderfully interesting people from all around the world - but it is also peaceful and quiet. The whole area is stunning and magical. We are an hour from the amazing city of Malaga and about the same from wonderful Granada. Life is really really good here.

We think we would like someone who is at least 18 years old (for legal reasons) and probably no more than 30 but we are open….youthful and full of energy and positivity is the key here….someone who is hungry to experience not just new people and cultures but to be part of a small family and who totally respects and enjoys the unschooling/worldschooling way of living and being. Creativity is a key need for us as my son is super creative but needs someone to express it all with…..and someone who is up for fun but is also super responsible, sensible, independent and mature. Someone who truly adores being with a child of my son’s age (straddling young boy/pre-teen ages) and digging into projects of all sorts…..Lego, music, art, filmmaking, silliness, nature, animals, sports, cooking and more…

Fluent English is a must and if Spanish is also spoken, that would be a super big plus both for us and for getting around in the area but classes are available and either way it is not a deal breaker…..We are vegetarian but have no problem being around meat. We eat as much organic as possible and live a very natural, healthy lifestyle....so someone who is more naturally inclined would be fabulous.
We have friends and community from all over the world and enjoy a varied, active and fun life which we look forward to sharing in all its hues with the right young woman. ;o)))
