English family get- together group

Hi everyone,
My name is Christel and I am Swiss, although my husband and the kids are dual citizens, American and Swiss. We have six kids, currently five of them are living with us. Their ages are 13, 9, 5, 3 and 1 year old.
I love English but normally I talk to the kids in German and my husband talks to them in English. So now they sometimes sort of speak swinglish.
We would like to get together with other families, who live near to us. We live in the Canton of Freiburg.
My goal would be to get together to talk and socialize with other English speaking families and so the kids could practice their English.
Plus it would be great to celebrate different American/Canadian holidays together, like Thanksgiving, or Halloween (is coming up next).
We are really flexible, any suggestions from your part would be great.
It would be fun just to get together to have coffee (or beer for the guys….
So please, feel free to contact me and my family.

Christel Roth

Hi Christel,

We're not exactly what you're asking for but my family (with kids aged 6 and 9) will be over for a little more than a week in November and we're looking to make acquaintances. It'd be good for our kids to meet kids with some Swiss, I think, and good for us to see other areas. We're all English or American so we can offer about all the English you'd like. We were thinking of a day trip to Bern from Zurich anyway (gotta get our money's worth out of the rail pass) so seeing Frieberg while we're there would be an added plus for us.

Happy to make it work if you'd be interested in a meetup.
