Snowtubing Fun

 

This January we met for a multi-cluster snowtubing event at Nashoba Valley Snowtubing Park.  Over 50 au pairs attended this annual event and had a lot of fun exploring this activity.

Counselors prepared hot chocolate and snacks that waited for au pairs after they came in from tubing the slopes to warm up.

Here’s our little group.  Nice smiles, ladies!

Coffee at the Charles River

 

In June, we had planned to go canoeing and have a picnic in Concord. Unfortunately, it was rainy that day. On our rain date, most au pairs preferred to meet for coffee in Cambridge. So we picked up some coffee and sat near the Charles River in Cambridge. It was a nice, relaxing meeting.

In the summer we say good-bye and hello to a lot of au pairs. At our meeting, we wished Natalie, Lena and Amandine farewell. Good luck with your future endeavors!

Au Pairs go minigolfing

 

Our cluster meeting in August was an outing to McGolf in Dedham.  It was a small meeting as many au pairs are vacationing in the summer, either by themselves or with their host families.

We welcomed Karina and Natalie from Germany to our cluster and said good-bye to Kongfang.

After our round of minigolf, we enjoyed some ice cream and chatted a bit more.

Au Pairs visit the Prudential Center Skywalk

On a beautiful Sunday in April, we joined three other local au pair clusters and visited the Prudential Center Skywalk.  It was about 50 of us and we had a great time.

We met in the food court first to chat, collect money and take care of au pair business.  We welcomed new au pair Eye and said good-bye to Carolina who is moving to another au pair cluster.

Once on the 50th floor, we enjoyed an audio tour and a beautiful view of Boston and its surroundings

Visit to the Beach

On a beautiful day in August, our au pair cluster went to Nahant beach.  It was nice for the summer arrivals to meet each other and more seasoned au pairs. It helps them adapt more easily after they have left their families and friend network to come to a new country.

We welcomed Laura B, Laura L, Victoria, Shiran, and Jaqueline.  We said good-bye to Tifaine who moved to another host family.

Au Pair Barbecue

This month, we met at my house for a barbecue.  Since it is summer, there were many good-byes and some hellos.  We said good-bye to Melissa, Tazmyn, Natalia, Audrey, Liz and Priscilla.   Good luck to you all with your future endeavors!  We said hello to Londeka and Miriam, who had just arrived to the area that week.   It was nice to see them start making connections with other au pairs.  They also benefited from advice and feedback from the more seasoned au pairs.

Au Pairs Canoe and Picnic in Historic Concord

What a fun event our annual canoeing and picnic was again this June!  For our cluster meeting, we met up with 2 other clusters at the South Bridge boat house.  From there, au pairs canoed to the North Bridge, where counselors had prepared a picnic with fruit, brownies and lemonade.  It was a beautiful day, perfect for our event.

Summer is a big time for good-byes.  We said good-bye to Julia, Junika, Jenni, Khim and Lucie.  We wish you all the best for your future!   We welcomed Veronika into our cluster.
