Scott and I have been married for 3 years and have two sons Angus 2 and Sam 3 months. We live rurally an hour north of Dunedin in Otago. Both Scott and Nadine were rural professionals until 3 years ago when we took the opportunity to go farming with Scotts family. We are a very busy family on the farm. We work hard but it provides a fantastic lifestyle. Angus and Sam are busy farm boys who love being outside. Scott and Nadine both love the outdoors enjoy Squash, travel, hunting, gardening and catching up with friends. We live near the small town of Dunback 1 hour north of the city of Dunedin in East Otago. East Otago has a lovely Central Otago climate with lots of sun and often a very hot/dry summer. The touristy coastal town of Oamaru is only an hour north and the Central Otago lakes are a couple of hours away. We have a 5 bedroom home with two bathrooms. We live upstairs and you would live downstairs with your own room and bathroom.

We are expecting our first child together! She is due to enter this world in the beginning of September. In the meantime we have the pleasure of Chris’s daughters Annika (7) and Chloe (4) every alternate weekend and every alternate Tuesday. We work full time so that is where we will need help caring for Adeline primarily. We don’t have the family support as an option – because we all live spread out now! We have fabulous relationships with our parents and siblings and see each other as often as our busy lives allow! We are a fun-loving, outgoing couple and our favourite way to spend spare time is by riding bicycles or doing "stuff". We love going away bike-packing and taking our small tent, or going camping with friends in our tent that is almost bigger than a house! We are looking for an au pair to be a part of our adventures and family life. The most important values to us are fun, communication and humour – we don’t read between lines well, we say it as it is and work it out!

Hi we are a family who likes to do a lot of activities outside like treks, swimming, motor bikes, cycling and horse riding, squash, tennis. We run our own motel business for the passed three and half years. We have enjoyed this very much and it has helped Jackson and Levi a lot with the natural ability to deal with lots of new and different types of people. We have recently also purchased have 6 acres of land which is only eight minutes drive from the motel, this offers us a lot more balance as a family to be able to provide the boys, a place to ride there motor cross bikes, ride the horses, play in the dirt, swim and have fun, in a safe environment. Also with both Matt and I having a love of motorbikes and horses it a brilliant balance.
