Hello - I am new today!  I have a son (10), daughter (7) and 2 stepsons (12 & 16).  We are an eco-friendly family that walks and bikes everywhere.  I have raised both my kids as naturally as possible, breastfeeding both for at least 2 years. I am a writer by profession.  My second book - on honoring Mother Earth - will be published this fall. I am very happy to find this community!  I am usually the "weird" one!

My hubby is a bike fanatic and has many.  I prefer to walk, but I have a cruiser for longer trips.  Kids have mountain bikes and we have 3 velomobiles - mostly that my husband and step-sons use, although now my girl wants a pink one!  (has to be modified for smaller sizes)
