thank you!

We are overwhelmed and amazed by the number of people who have caught this dream with us. You sing better, make better movies,  take way better pictures than us, and are more qualified to watch our kids than we are! We are filled with appreciation. You are willing to leave your lives, friends, and families to be with us for a year.  There is no greater compliment.

We accidentally created a community with our Nanny Video.  I feel like we have made a huge worldly connection with kindred spirits. I want our viewers to feel like each time they come to our site or page that they can breath a sigh of relief, knowing that there will only be positive content and people here. I am doing this for my benefit but also for yours. I want you to feel like this is a safe place. That you won’t leave with any sort of hostility attached to your visit due to an unkind comment, thought, or remark. Dreams are sacred here, and we’ll never tear yours down.

This is my goal. Attainable? I think so.

Here are a few funny answers and stats from the survey that you filled out. Your answers and insights have been hilarious and inspirational.

For colors:
Listing the color as your first choice 4% of you like the color Red, Beckett’s favorite color

5 of you said, “Sorry boys…it’s pink!”
one person’s favorite color is salmon
one person said raspberry pink

Out of Characters:
two people are Rex from Toy Story

one person said they are 100% the Bird from the movie Up!

Your answers are captivating on why you would like to travel with us. We’ve decided to make an in home coffee table book on this response alone. It is just for our family to enjoy and reflect upon.  We hope that is Ok.

We are all discovering what life truly has to offer us personally. We hope that your course will migrate with ours and that might not be physically.

We can’t control everything that happens to us in life. Our control is in our desires, the purity of our motives, and the wholeheartedness of our efforts. Still, let us all take flight together. Let us start with fulfilling our lives and see where it takes us.

  1. I applied! Even if you don’t choose me though, this was enough motivation for me to follow my dream of travelling. Keeping up with your updates are so fun, kind and positive that it reminds us to follow our dreams too. Well done guys!

  2. Thank you for having given us the opportunity to be part of your dream and project! Thank you for helping people to visualize the world better than what it appears to be. Can’t wait to see how your project goes and I’ll be definitely part of it, behind the screen (following you) or holding your cute amazing kiddos, who knows 🙂
    Much blessings guys! Praying for you!
    Kathleen HERRGOTT.

    1. By the way guys, if you need any help for places to stay in France or Germany or Italy, let me know as I definitely can help with that. And if you need any tips for your travels in Germany, France and Italy as well, I can help. Blessings, Kathleen.

  3. That was beautifully put. Glad you took courage to invite a stranger to be part of your world and to fall in love with being a Nanny and seeing the world through their eyes. The things you both said inspired a lot of people and I hope this adventure got your family brings you all the happiness in the world. Enjoy and congrats on your happiness ❤🌏🌎🌍✨✨💞

  4. This is so moving ❤️ Ahh! Si much genuine happiness; the best! It is SO contagious to read all of your updates! I have crossed fingers, toes, and eyes to even be considered amongst the thousands! I pray my video touches your heart ❤️

  5. Thank you for giving someone the chance to have such an amazing adventure with your family! I feel lucky to have had the chance to apply and you made me realize how fortunate most of us are. No matter who you choose I can’t wait to follow you on your journey.

  6. I just wanted to say this whole experience is so exciting and inspirational. I’m about to finish my masters degree in elementary education and wanted to take a break from school and give back to the rest of the world! I have been so stuck deciding how I was going to do this. Basically I need to be around kids… like all the time, they’re what I love for. This experience could not have come at a better time, not to mention be more perfect. You guys are doing something so unimaginably incredible and your kids will thank you when they are older. From a teachers standpoint, exposure to new things is one of the best things you can do for your kids! You are making a difference just by your passion to do what you love. I know I’m against millions but doing this in general fuels my fire in continuing my dream of teaching and traveling and I thank you guys so much for being so cool 🙂

  7. Thank us?? Thank YOU for this crazy wonderful opportunity. I have the most insane amount of butterflies anxiously waiting to see if I am the lucky one chosen by you to share in this adventure. I am already imagining the laughs, adventures, and growth that we would all experience together. You are an amazing family who have created an amazing community and the world is a better place because you all are in it. Im really hoping you find me to be the perfect fit for your family but if not, I’m praying that you find that right person to share in this journey with you all!
    Much love from Springfield, MO!!

  8. I am happy to be a part of your community, and pray you find exactly what you need as you go through the applications. I commented on something else you posted that I am so blessed by how calm, positive, and kind you are in every post you make. Your children, and so many others, are watching and learning from you. Thank you for opening your lives to far beyond your neighborhood!

  9. Thank you for opening this opportunity up to everyone. I know it was not what you were expecting but, to be able to have the chance to travel and teach the history of our world and have the experience of a lifetime is a dream come true. I will continue to cross fingers in hope that I will be on this journey with you and writing my own blog the experience but, if I am not chosen I will enjoy it from here.

  10. Thanks for allowing us to be part of your dream! In a small way it’s helped me to continue dreaming!! You guys are amazing! X

  11. This is such an amazing community to be a part of and to watch grow. I am more than grateful to say that I am rooting for the success of this family and all that includes. It has been lovely to see your fun-loving family in affect! Thank you!

  12. You’re a lovely family. I think Beckett is destined for TV. What a little ball of energy. Wren is chill and Porter as happy as can be. You’re all lovely souls and your unique charisma is vivid in the photos and videos you share. Best wishes to all applicants and crunch time for you too! There are lots of courageous individuals sharing their vulnerability and skill set. Can’t wait until you have your top 10 chosen.

  13. You guys are an inspiration and amazing to see you wanting to travel with your children. Hopefully will get the chance to speak to you about my application 🙂 good luck!

  14. That is an awesome God given goal, the best type, which means it will definitely be achievable! Bless you heaps as you go through the decision making process.

  15. I am so excited to watch and continue to be apart of your journey! My prayer is that you all are blessed beyond belief and are a blessing to those you encounter and meet! You guys are living my dream, but are inspiring me and many others on continuing forth to pursuing ours! Much love!

  16. Thank you for the opportunity to apply! What an inspiration you are. You only live one life…and you are giving a great one to those kiddos. Even if I am not chosen, after I cry in my bathtub, I will have been thankful to even have been in this great community with you. Xoxox

  17. Good luck with your decision making process! I wish you all the luck! I applied myself, and even if I’m not chosen, thank you for showing all of us that it really is possible to go after our dreams!

  18. Thank you so much for sharing both your families dream and this amazing family adventure with all of us. I applied (the google drive) that very first evening while grilling dinner for my nanny kids. My boss was definietly supportive. For me the traveling would be the icing on the cake. As a career nanny, to be able to combine a dream with what I love doing (being a nanny) would be amazing. I know the odds are slim, so regardless I am looking forward to following your journey. Even if that’s through FB and YouTube. Best of luck getting though all those applications/emails. Sounds like a full-time job. Happy Sunday!

  19. I think we’re the one that should thank you! So many people had the chance to apply for what could be THE dream job. In just a couple of days, you guys put joy and hope in our lives. Even if you just take one person, you guys made us believe that it was possible. I’m pretty sure that more people will now travel even if they have kids, jobs, and even if they don’t have a lot of money. You gave us the trust that it was possible, and I thank you for that. For my part, I now know that it would be something that I will do in the futur, and I hope that our journey will eventually come together so that we have a chance to meet. Good luck guys!

  20. Your family is such an inspiration. I found out about you guys yesterday and thankfully had time to apply. Even if I don’t get to take this trip with you guys, I am so incredibly moved to start planning the things where I have said “I want to do that one day.” TODAY is the day for me. Hopefully I can embark on this beautiful experience with you and fulfill these dreams! Much love <3 – Sarah

  21. You guys are an inspiration! Keep being you, good luck with your choice and your trip, and thank you for letting us feel like we are a little part of this magical journey!!!

  22. I think what you’re doing is extraordinary! The lifestyle you live is one that any child would be blessed to have. I hope your kiddos love the home-school life just as much as I did, because it opens so many doors and allows for such creativity. The very best of luck while searching for that one perfect person who will mold into your family well. I enjoyed applying and look forward to following you through this journey whether it’s here in Michigan or through flight with you!

  23. I feel honored to be a part of this great adventure. May you all enjoy this trip of a lifetime; a trip that I believe will make history. Blessed are those who share in the joy of others. Diamonds & tea cakes, love & friendships, truth & light, may you find all of these things on your travels & more. So much love for everyone reading this. God be with you all. Love. Peace. Smiles.

  24. Thank you for thia opportunity to apply. I actually recorded a video and posted on IG. After posting and tagging #fivetakeflight I realized my video was too long, it took almost 2mins and couldn’t upload it full. So I personal messaged you on facebook and direct message you on IG. I sent my whole video there. I hope you consider that. Thank you. I hope you find your nanny soon . Enjoy your travel and God bless you and your family.

  25. I was able to finally upload my application and video last night – hooray! Thank YOU so much for this follow up post – it’s so nice to catch a glimpse of all the amazing personalities that have applied for this position! Even if I am not chosen to come along on your trip, I hope that whoever does join you will bless you all and enhance the quality of your journey with their character and talents. Hearing about this opportunity has made me realize just how much I really want to explore new places. And may your kids forever be glad that you included “favorite color” and “Disney character” on your questionnaire – it’s great that you let them have a say!

  26. This is awesome! What you are doing is awesome! Definitely praying for you guys as you choose someone to come alongside you on all your adventures! No matter who you choose, it’s going to be a fantastic adventure 🙂 blessings

  27. Praying for your family as you make this very important decision! I hope whoever you choose will be perfect for your family!
    Thank you so much for giving us all this amazing oppurtunity I look forward to being a part of this journey whether in person or here at home in my living room. It will be so fun to watch Beckett, Porter, and Wren as they go around the world and see new things… I really love it that you are instilling a love for travel and adventure in them.
    You all are amazing and I am looking forward to seeing who you choose ( and hoping it will be me!! 😀 )
    Best of luck,
    Hannah Burwell

  28. You have such a beautiful soul and are so gifted with words! Your family has inspired me so much just in this short time, and I am continually praying I will be blessed to join your family! Sending prayers to all of you while in this decision making process!❤

  29. Wren doesn’t lilke dummies? me neither. I never have used one, and I’m doing well! I applied too. However I am so afraid, my application arrives too late, because of the time lag here in Europe.

  30. Wow!!! I am so excited for you to take this adventure. It’s really quite amazing what you are planning to do. You and your family look like you have a lot of fun together. This adventure will be a a once in a lifetime for you guys as well as any one of us that you pick. I can’t wait to see what the next update will be. And I know even if I’m not picked I’ll definitely be keeping up with you guys on this journey. Thanks so much and God bless!!

  31. I applied! 🙂 But regardless of the outcome, thank you for allowing all of us to be a part of this! So incredibly moved and inspired by your family.
    P.S. If you go to Thailand, visit Chiangmai! It’s amazing. There is an Elephant Sanctuary called Elephant Nature Park (ENP) where you can go volunteer and work/play with elephants! Such an experience!

  32. I applied and I am super excited for you guy’s. I love your update they are always so positive and inspiring. The Facebook lives are my favorite I hope you do more. If you still need/want ideas for where to go I suggest Madrid, Spain, when I had the chance to go to Europe it was one of my favorite city’s we when to.

  33. Thank you for your story and sharing you adventure! I’m so excited to follow along and see what your family learns and discovers. This is an amazing journey your decide to embark on and I’m extatic to see the blogs and photos!

  34. I, also, applied! Even if I don’t get picked, I want to personally Thank You for giving me the drive and the motivation to travel again. It’s been a trying couple years for me, but your video helped me to find the joy in travel again.

  35. I applied and have been grinning like an idiot seeing all of the other applications come through. It’s a beautiful world out there and I love seeing how many others recognize that and want to share in it together. You have quite the process ahead of you, but man, those Rex’s must be top contenders. Thank you for including us all in this journey, from taking the time to read applications, to creating a sacred space for dreams to take roots. The best is somehow yet to come!

  36. Thank you! You are an example to follow, an inspiration to many people, love to see all the love everyone is spraying, nowadays there is a lot of hate in the social media. Glad I found the video because I love to read your website!!!

  37. Thank You for giving myself and so many others the chance to D.R.E.A.M. To dream of a magical adventure through the eyes of young children around the globe <3 Also, thank you for the opportunity to make a video introducing myself, for with that I got to see through my sisters eyes how much they love me. And must give credit to Emma (11) and Ellie (7) for making the entire film <3 <3

  38. You’re family is truly inspirational. I would love to join you on your worldly travels. (I hope I followed the right channels to send in my application.)
    Please contact me to meet you if you ever travel to South Africa.
    I pray that God will bless you with the best Nanny with a big heart, kindess and who can inspire your kids everyday.

  40. No one is more qualified than you to watch your children. Mommy and daddy are the BEST in all children’s eyes and lives. A nanny’s love can come in a close second place. I know you’ll find a wonderful individual to fill the role. Peace and blessings. ~ CC

  41. We need to thank you for opening up your doors and showing us your amazing family and let us to get to know you. I think you are extremely brave for what you are doing and I am sure this experience will be one in a lifetime for Beckett,Porter and Wren. Just the opportunity to meet you is gratifying. I hope it can be personally but if not I wish you all the best for this 2017/2018. I will follow up for sure.

  42. Hiiii from Granada, Spain! (Definitely, a city to add to your traveling-with-kids-bucket list!) It seems that I just missed such an amazing opportunity with you and your family since I just got to see your video and the energizing adventure you are offering! I’ve been already working as an elementary teacher in California for few years and will continue to do it abroad because it is my big dream. Your excitement and positive vibes do inspire me to keep on living big and cherish every moment with your beloved ones! Wish I had known about your project ahead of time to apply for it, but let me know if I still have any chance 🙂
    Safe and happy travels!

  43. Thank you! I love your positive mind!! Keep it as long as possible 🤗 I applied, but whether you will choose me or not, I hope this will be an amazing part of your life! Love from Germany!

  44. You really have build a beautiful community through this process. I really look forward to following your family trip (whoever the nanny ends up being!) as you and your family have truely become an inspiration for me and my future family! Thanks for setting the stage! 🙂

  45. I hope i’ll find someone one day that would go through an crazy travel adventure with me and my future kids you guys are family goals i already feel so connected to your family and can’t wait to see all the future travel pictures with 5 big smiles on it.
    Thank you for inspiring me and probably everyone else,whiteout a doubt i know that your travels will motivate me to be the best version of myself so Thank You !
    Lots of love,

  46. Thank you for sharing so much of your pure and simple joy, you have a gift with words and your chrilden are gifted with parents as caring as you. Offering one lucky soul to grow with you as they see the world from there own eyes as well as from your three beautifull children’s eyes is very generous and inspiring! I would feel blessed to share such an incredible adventure with you. I hope you guys find your perfect 6th ❤🌎 I can’t wait to follow you on your journey, either in person🤞🏼 Or thru your blog and videos☺

  47. What beautiful and deep words !! 😀 In such a heartless world, I’m glad I can find sensitive people like you! Of course, if you allow us to, we will follow this journey with you.

  48. Thank you to your and your family for being amazing and inspirational. I know this process will be difficult for you. I myself have applied, however, I know there are thousands of applicants. I wish you good luck on having to go through thousands of applications and picking one.
    xoxo Gaby

  49. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to apply and just giving me the experience to see how blessed I am and how blessed YOUR family is. I hope God gives you the courage and peace with your decision. ❤

  50. As happy as I was to simply apply for an amazing opportunity such as this, I am even more excited (but also nervous) to see what your final decision will be. Whether I am the candidate that you chose or not, I would love to be a resource to you and your children for their educational needs. My job has brought me so much insight as to how children learn and grow at different paces, and I want to continue to share that knowledge I have gained with everyone I can in any way possible! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, or have whoever you chose reach out to me, for questions or concerns with their homeschooling plan. I have millions of ideas for how to make education a fun and exciting experience for children and even adults of all ages that I would love to see become reality!

  51. It’s amazing to discover a family like your. I’m really happy to trying participate in your wonderful live during one year. But in other case I would be happy if your family visit my city, Granada, in Spain and we get to know and have a great day! My house is open for you! Best wishes! Xxx Belen

  52. I pray for your family and for choosing the right person who will be with you in your journey. God bless!! From Philippines 🇵🇭 with love ❤️

  53. Hi, I saw your youtube video and I just have one word (or should I say world) to youbguys WOOOW! It’s an amazing idea you have. I haven’t applied but if you think I seem interested, shoot and email 🙂

    Used to be an an au pair for a year with an amazing family that I’m still in contact with, one of the best choices I’ve made!! It was the best year of my life and I developed so much as a person!! Played with the kids (6 and 8 years old), we did homework and was outside a lot which I love!! Also had a blog when au pairing for my family back home and shared my life in photos cuz photography is one of my hobbies. Let me know if you wanna read my blog from that year! Take care and good luck to find the right person for you 🙂

    Love from Sweden
    Emma, 20 years old

  54. What a truly incredible family! I applied and would love more than anything to be your nanny but whoever gets chosen will be richly blessed!

  55. Thank you for this opportunity! I definitely applied because I would love to do this with your family BUT if I’m not chosen thats okay. It has sparked more of a want/need to travel the world in me and also to go for my dreams in life. Whatever Jesus wants for me I’m totally in even if it seems scary or nerve racking! Again thank for for the opportunity to even apply whether I get it or not! I’m looking forward to seeing where this adventure takes your family!

  56. We are the ones who have to thank YOU!
    I applied for the job and I have to be honest, when I first saw your video I thought “OH MY GOD I WANT TO GO!!” but then I took 2 days to really think about it, to make sure I would be prepared for the challenge. And I am. I really am. But at the same time, I know that I have one in a million chances to be chosen so I can’t wait to know your decision!!
    Thank you again, you have an amazing family !!

  57. Thank you so much for this opportunity to apply for such a great job and a great adventure as well. I am very excited and nervous to see who you choose. I know that you are following your hearts. The strongest weapon we will ever own is our hearts and I can see that your family shows that quite q bit. I am hoping to join your family in your great adventure and if not in person, hopefully online, but prefer in person. 🙂

  58. I just want to thank you for your courage and openness to even come up with an idea like this! It really has created a community where we all share similar passions. It’s amazing to see how big your idea has become and it makes me excited to even be a part of your process! Applying to this opportunity has given me more confidence and pride than any other experience because although it’s a one in a million chance, we all need to be courageous enough to try it! And look at how many people did! It’s truly amazing. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your process!

  59. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity. Your family motivated a lot of people around the globe. It’s really great to see a wonderful family just like yours. I’d totally appreciate if you could read my application, but my hope is for you to get the perfect Nanny for the kids, because nothing is more important than these lovely blessed kids 🙂 take care!

  60. That book is the first presses treasure from this trip. I’m pray that God guessed you to the person that will be an unimaginable blessing for your family. Even if it’s not me.

  61. I’m pray that God guessed you to the person that will be an unimaginable blessing for your family. Even if it’s not me.

  62. The great thing about this entire process is that sweet baby Wren is too little to remember much of it so in another 4 or 5 years you will have to do it all again! Who knows, by then there may be another adorable little fair maiden who will also need to have experience a true connection with the people of the world 😉

  63. I applied…Ha, at least I believe I did. I’m still new to this whole “social media” thing. Not sure if anything I “forwarded” actually was received on your end. Hopefully it was (video, answers to questions and imessage) and it’s not floating somewhere in space in someone’s “cloud”. 😮

    Anyhow, this “social media/video” thing was an experience, alone…only took me several takes. :I I didn’t realize I was limited to a few seconds (as you can tell – I can talk). It was tough trying to cram my thoughts in less than a minute. It wasn’t until after the deadline (yes, the video was sent last night with just minutes to spare) I realized I could have tagged on several more videos. Hopefully you live by the motto…”less is more” 😉

    Well, the whole experience was spontaneous, fun and enlightening. I’m glad I participated, no matter the outcome. It was wonderful getting to know your beautiful family via facbook and your website. I love your heartfelt videos, blogs and comments.

    But I have to admit…I do not envy you right know. You have a long, arduous task ahead of you right now. I can not imagine having to pick the one perfect person out of thousands of perfect people to care for your prescious children.

    May GOD highlight to you a PERFECT selection of HIS chosing, and may your family be forever blessed with him or her.

    GOD Bless your family and your travels!!!

  64. Hello guys 🙂

    I may have been too late in applying 🙁 Still unable to send my video to you as am waiting for your reply on Insta. In any case, your family’s dream is becoming an inspiration to many and together with your nanny if choice, you will continue to inspire and uplift all of your followers. This is truly amazing. I cannot wait to follow you on your journey (if not physically, then remotely) and when you hit Asia, please please let me host you in my beautiful island of Penang, Malaysia. We have the best of east meets west! And the food here 😱😱 You HAVE to visit!

    All the very best in your process as well as come July, when you start making memories and building dreams. XOXO

  65. As I follow along with your videos and posts and reading the comments here, I find myself wondering how many men applied.

      1. I am just finding this and I’m so disappointed I did not have the opportunity to file and application. I’ve been a mom, grandmother, caregiver to both my parents before they passed. That’s the nature of my personality……to give and not take. Since my mother passed away last April, I literally have no baggage to make a huge transition into a nomadic life for a year. My two children are grown, and I have two grandsons, ages 2.8 years, and one 4 months old. I teach Sunday School to pre-schoolers. If no one jumps out, and you’d like a well traveled surrogate mother/grandmother who is young at heart, and loves the wonder of children and their upbringing, please let me know. I never saw the application, but I do know that God is calling me to do something completely unique. I can’t imagine what could be a better scenario… travel with kids, and young adults and see the world while learning at the same time. God bless, and may he lead you to the exact person for this job. Suzanne aka Gigi to my grandson.

      2. You guys are an inspiration! I am now looking at all avenues of life and travel and planning my future with more options tha I thought possible. I do hope to find a place in your family but I am also looking into and planning my tentative travel 2017! Life’s adventure is more beautiful each day!

  66. Thank you guys a bunch. I’m grateful for having the chance to apply. I’m happy a whole bunch of people also had this opportunity. I’ve seen some of their video entries and found that they were more than qualified. Can’t wait to see whom ever you choose. I will surely be following your adventures whether I am physically with you or at home waiting to watch your new Youtube vlog.

    Best wishes,
    Nikia 🙂

  67. I’d like your lovely family to know that this post was beautifully written and enormously appreciated. Although I have applied for joining you on this grand adventure as a nanny,I’d also like to tell you that whether or not I’m the lucky one chosen,watching your nanny video,as well as binging the rest of your YouTube channel afterwards and checking out your blog and Instagram,has re-inspired and re-motivated me to follow my personal dreams of traveling the world and being adventurous. So,an enormous thank you from me to your family for bringing to life the person I am and hope to become! I can’t fully express how grateful I am to be even a small part of this process you are going through and I pray the Lord guides you in the decision you are faced with in finding the perfect person to join you on this adventure. Again,huge thanks and much appreciation! Lots of love,Andrea

  68. This was beautiful and reassuring.

    I am one of your applicants. I felt a bit harassing trying to get to know you through your social media and blogs as well as try to give you a small hint as to who I am. As I read more I felt less concerned. You and your family give a very welcoming vibe. I do want to apologize for all the notifications you’re probably getting from me in particular. I just get excited every time I see something you’ve posted that I can make a connection to. ( my name is Amanda my brother/ heros name is Derek …the first connection I made ) I am HONORED that my response may be on your coffee table somewhere someday.

    Thank you for allowing me to apply for the idea I have been most excited about in years. Your little bird and boys deserve the best. I hope you find exactly who God has set aside for you

  69. This has been the most beautiful out pour of love and support. Following your story has been an amazing way to start off the new year. I wish your family the best and thank you for sending your kindness into the world. May you have safe and amazing travels. ♥

  70. Hi five take flight-family,
    I’m kind of stalking you guys with comments here and there, simply because I’m so disappointed I found out this morning (Europe(s) time zone) I couldn’t apply anymore. The reason for me being late is that I wanted to talk this through with my boyfriend because it is a big thing. And since my boyfriend was on the road in Mexico and we needed to Skype it was a little more difficult… But we decided I should go for it! And then I couldn’t apply.
    This way I hope to grab your attention just for a second so you can get my application off the waiting list and/or read my résumé. I believe I truly have something to offer for you guys too and I think we might be a match made in heaven! 😉

  71. I am glad and grateful that a friend shared your post to me on FB. It made me then started pondering of this great opportunity. Thank you!
    Many dreams to travel, I am one of them. And I tried to go out there and explore. Many tried different jobs, I am one of them. And childcare always full me back that I believe it is my calling. Many get the opportunity I am fortunate to be one of them. And live permanently in Canada. For all these I am so thankful to my creator and to all the people who had been part of my life. Now, I Thank you and your whole family for this wonderful ideas and making us believing in our dreams. I will be following your journey and through you will enjoy the feelings. I put my application and even if I am not chosen, I am thankful for the opportunity. God bless and take care of you and the whole community you have created.

  72. I know that you are probably overwhelmed with submissions for your amazing opportunity, but you should truly take a moment to consider my dear friend Jackie Cleary of Brockton, MA for this position. Nothing fits her more than caring for children and seeing the world. She is responsible and qualified. I know you would regret not considering her. She has posted a video for you as instructed on instagram.

  73. Thank you for posting such warmth, positivity, inspiration and encouragement! For helping us all to start believing in ourselves abilities if we desire and put our minds to it to be able to fulfil our dreams if we but have faith!!! Please keep on inspiring!!! Even though don’t personally know you guys, beginning to love you guys through your words and videos!!!

  74. Thanks for allowing the opportunity alone! Good luck in your endeavours (I’d hope to accompany you all, but if not, best of luck, have FUN, take lots of pics, eat lots of pizza and enjoy time together!) You guys are #goals. 😊

  75. First of all thank you so much for the opportunity to even apply and possibly be considered. I can’t imagine how overwhelmed you may be with all the applicants and I hope you find someone of course who fits your family and needs perfectly. Although I of course hope and pray I am chosen or even considered, what matters most is that you find someone who loves you and your children as much as they would their own family! That’s one thing I’ve learned in my time at Disney; some kids will wait hours to meet you, some have waited their entire lives for that moment. And when the characters show them love back there is a true magic that can’t be explained. I don’t know that I’ve ever appreciated and loved the innocence of a child as much as I do now after spending day in and day out with them. There is nothing as sweet and fervent than knowing you’ve touched a child’s heart, even if for a short time. And that’s why I do what I do. And I’m sure whoever you choose will feel the same feelings for and your family. Blessings to you all! I know the decision will be tough and I pray you find the right fit and have the Best Year Ever!!!!

  76. Your family seems so lovely! I can’t wait to follow your adventures, physically, (I applied) or by way of your blog and travel pictures.
    Like has been stated before, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to even be considered to care for your sweet children. I am sure you will deliberate and find the perfect match for your family and the needs you have.
    I will follow your family on social media if not in person.
    Hugs and blessings!! Happy Trails!!!

  77. Dreams do come true with hope, faithfulness and kindness! 😊
    Thank you for keeping your dreams alive and giving so many people the chance to dream too!
    Hope I make the cut and best of luck to you all!
    Samantha Lavin 😀 🇨🇦🇬🇧

  78. As many others have said, I also have signed up for the waiting list but since I know you all have a plethora of great choices, I am still excited to follow you all virtually on your journey. It has definitely sparked an interest and opened my eyes to more career opportunities that incorporate both loving children and seeing the world. Thank you for sharing your joy and passion with the rest of us! My prayers will be with you all as well as you travel!

  79. This is a lovely post. I’ll keep my comment short since I know you have a bit of reading material to get through at the moment. 😉 I’m really curious, what’s the final count. How many people applied, in the end?

  80. Hi maam and sir.

  81. I just wanted to thank you guys for giving the community such an amazing opportunity. My mom showed me your video and I was so excited to apply. A few weeks ago I didn’t know what I wanted to do after I graduate high school; I then watched your video. I realized, as I was watching, that this is the direction I want to go. I want to travel. I have always loved the idea of traveling. I’ve lived in the same state for my entire life, and the farthest I’ve travel is New York and the Bahamas. I applied for this job because I LOVE kids and working with them. I’ve been babysitting since I was 12, and I even took a class to be certified in child care. I wanted to thank you guys, because even though one individual will have the opportunity to share your adventure with you guys, yiu have inspired so many people. For me personally, yiur family was the one to send the spark of where I want to go after I graduate.
    So again, just thank you, and I hope I get to know your kids and share this opportunity with your family.❤

  82. Hi guys, if you still looking for a nanny, I will be grateful to be a part of this trip and share magic and love to your childrens.I’m a good cooker, I love to play and teach childs and learn about them.
    I’ve been babysiter and I speak many languages: spanish,french,italian (basic), catalan and english 🙂
    Ones of my favourite things in life is travel, so will be just perfect!
    Lovely family, amazing trip 🙂
    Lost of love!!

  83. The hope this has instilled in me. The hope of the pure possibility that my life COULD be like this. I have been filled throughout my entire core with hope that I’ve never really felt before. I am so thankful for your family. For this. It has enlightened my mind and honestly brought tears to my eyes and shivers down my spine. The vision of my life being filled with my wildest dreams. A life that before i saw as absolutely unattainable. You have made it a possibility. And it makes me really emotional. Thank you fivetakeflight family

    1. If nothing else comes out of all that’s happening right now I would be perfectly content after reading your comment. Thank you for sharing this. You have added to my dream and hope.

  84. You guys have left me and so many others so inspired! I am inspired to do well but to also do good, to follow dreams, and to do whatever it takes to see the rest of what is out there! Keep being awesome!!

  85. I wish to express my appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this matter. Just after looking out through the search engines and coming across solutions that were not powerful, I thought my entire life was well over. Being alive without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you’ve solved by way of this review is a serious case, as well as ones that could have adversely affected my career if I had not discovered your web site. The ability and kindness in maneuvering the whole lot was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I can also at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks very much for the reliable and result oriented help. I won’t hesitate to propose the website to any individual who would like guide on this topic.

  86. I wish I had found this sooner so I could have applied and
    possibly joined you. I have lots of experience with children and homeschooling and traveling. I’ll just have to enjoy watching you have fun while I teach another year in Japan. If you come here, I’d recommend the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. It’s made especially for kids.

  87. Hi there, You’ve performed an excellent job. I’ll certainly digg it and in my opinion suggest to my friends. I am sure they’ll be benefited from this website.

  88. I have applied! i hope i get it ,but if i don’t i wish luck to who ever does and cant wait to share the (virtual or actual) trip with all of you!
    Seeing this made me realize that i cannot wait to start my journey, traveling and working, and that it will definitely involve travel! thank you two and good luck selecting and shifting through what im sure are many, many amazing applicants!

  89. Thank you for this opportunity 🙂 I look forward to watching your adventure and seeing your children grow, both mentally and physically!
    Sending love from a dinosaur in China! Xx

  90. Beautiful family. I am the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, I am building the same values in them as you want to do with your children. Not with the opportunity that you have, but with the most important love, wisdom, experience of everything that I have learned throughout my own experiences. Good luck in everything you undertake.

  91. Hi! I am from Argentina and I am really interested. How can I apply for the job? I hope we can keep in touch and thank you for your time 🙂

  92. Hi family Tillotson, I would like to have this opportunity, I am Brazilian and would be an opportunity to improve my English, a language that I am passionate about, taking care of children, that I love doing it too, meeting Native Americans and traveling the world, I would really like this wonderful and perhaps unique chance in life.

  93. My name is Lucia, I am a retired teacher, I worked for 13 years in daycare as a child caregiver and 25 years as a teacher. My whole life was living in this environment, first helping my parents to take care of my brothers, then as the first family member to go For college, I graduated in early childhood education and for adorable 25 years I taught the first words to almost a thousand people who today cry not being me teaching their children, I always invented something to get their attention, sang, invented rhymes and many times The students from other rooms came to participate too. I love children very much and today I spend my time with my goddaughter Valentina who helps me to reduce the lack of school. I love imagining traveling the world, if I have the opportunity, I’ll know how to enjoy it in the best way possible. Congratulations on giving us all this great chance and we’ll meet in July. Good luck.
