Description of our house
Our historic (for Montana) clapboard home is one of the oldest in the town, yet still is only 101 years old. It is comfortable, welcoming, and friendly. The street is shady with mature trees. The double lot offers a large roomy yard with lots of children's equipment such as a swingset, a trampoline, sandbox, and slider. There is an old but sturdy picnic table and a pen with 3 rabbits, plus a raised flower bed. Friends love to relax in the backyard. There are indoor pets which can be boarded, and weekly basic maid service. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom with a claw-foot tub. Downstairs there is a guest bedroom with its own bathroom. The living room has a fold-out couch which sleeps 2. We have satelite TV in 3 rooms.

= marks the location of this home
We live in the small historic district of a Montana town which has about 10,000 people. Nearly everyone here is friendly and helpful. Outdoor activities abound throughout the state, which is large even by North American standards, and very large by European standards, so you must leave extra time to travel to various ares of the state--but it's worth it. There are nearby (and state-wide) mountain ranges and 2 Native American reservations nearby. There are also Dinosaur digs, large and small lakes, and a medical facility.
Something about ourselves
I am a single mother of 3 kids ages 8, 10, and 13. I am an ER doctor and work 24 hour shifts. I can get 4-5 weeks off at a time but must plan several months ahead. We homeschool and we can travel without reguard to the state school schedule. We just plan ahead and then incorporate the travel into our studies. We've never exchanged homes before, but feel very excited about it! My parents will travel with us. When I was very young we lived abroad for 5 years and we'd like to travel together again. They live in North Carolina and their house could be used for the exchange also. My parents are artists and retired teachers.
