I hope everyone is well and enjoying their 2006 so far. I can't
believe it's nearly Easter already! In London the weather is very chilly. We've even seen some snow this month. Lots
of children have tried their best to build some snowmen and the city, although very cold, is looking bright.
For those of you already in America, this month's 'Touchdown'
has plenty of things to interest you - we know how much you all enjoyed last issue's Christmas cookie recipe, so we've
added another little treat for the Easter holidays. We also have more information on the Global Awareness
program from our American office: a great opportunity for you to share your culture and brush up on your public
If you're thinking of joining the program, we have lots of great
features for you, inlcuding stories from host families, interviews with au pairs and travel opportunities. We hope these
help you in your decision making. If you would still like to be an au pair, we now have an on-line application form, which
is part of our new-look website. Click here to read more.
It’s always lovely to hear
from you all so keep letters and pictures coming! Send them onto us
Wishing you all a great
Au Pair in America
