Au Pair Story - Farm Life
By South African Au Pair Nomvula Khoza with the Koopal Family in Sarcoxie, MO.
Even though we live on a farm, the house is very modern. I practically do everything with the family, especially the kids. There's so much nature around which I love, a lot of space to play with the kids, and because it’s remote, there's no bad influence on the kids which makes them grounded and appreciate life more. The food is great: we have chickens that give us fresh organic eggs every day, we have a seasonal garden with organic fresh produce. It is a very loving community around here and with a generous family friend that lets us ride on her horses.
As a young person I know you might think, there's got to be more to life then farm life and nature and yes, there is more. The family has been very generous to me, by me using their car to get me around and plus I’m a very responsible person and I have earned their trust, so there are nearby towns that I visit occasionally and during my off days with my friends, (Joplin, Carthage and Springfield), there are malls, night clubs, outdoor activities and the YMCA.
