Hey there,<br><br>
I'm looking for families in Langley, BC - I have two girls - 2 and 5yrs and plan on homeschooling this year. I'm hoping to find other families around this area ... tired of defending my co-sleeping-still nursing-no vaccines lifestyle.<br><br>
Cheers,<br>
Jennifer

I live in the Maple Ridge/Mission area... I know some AP moms in Cloverdale and Chilliwack too... we had a Fraser Valley thread going for a while there and some other nearby moms posted <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I hang out with the Vancouver moms too... its a great group... worth the drive into the city <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We nonvax, homebirth, cd, extended bf, babywear and now hs... so I understand what you mean!!<br><br>

I'm in Abbotsford but I spent my teenage years in Langley (my parents still live there). My girls are 5 (well, almost) and 3 and I have a 13 month old son. I'm always looking for other little friends for my kids. We don't know too many IRL.

I just joined here last night and I am so excited to see other Fraser Valley "AP-ish" families!<br><br>
We are in Langley City, and I have a daughter, who was 3 in March and and almost 18m/o son.<br><br>
I have a great group of mommy friends that I get together with occasionally (less and less it seems these days) - but none of them really seem to "<i>get</i>" me KWIM.<br><i>"why would you want to carry her/him all the time?"<br>
"how could you bf past 1yr/18m/whilepg/past 2yrs/2 at the same time?"</i><br>
And I have just come to avaoid the co-sleeping and vax & circ issues b/c it's not worth the debate...LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
I'm looking forward to getting to know some new friends here!<br><br>

Hi all,<br>
I have just recently returned to the Abbotsford area. I too am 'way out there', or so I have been told. I am still nursing my almost 3 year and extended nursed the older two. No vax. Cloth diapered when needed. Weird food issues. And homeschooling! Oh and other 'hang-ups' too numerous to mention. I'd love to find some folks more 'on the same page'. My other two crunchie-like friends moved away about 2 years ago.<br>
I do know grat8fulmom......Hi Jen!<br>
So if anyone would like to plan some sorta get together I am so in!!!!!<br>
Great to see you all here!!!<br>
Hope to hook up sometime!!

I'm in Cloverdale - would be up for meeting with some people - though I'll admit I'm not NEARLY as "crunchy" as most here seem to be. We have 5 children ages 6, almsot 5, 3 and 18 month old twins. We homeschool & cloth diaper but I take my double stroller everywhere unless dh is with me - then we each backpack one twin.

Hi Cheryl!<br>
I'm just a "slightly crunchy" myself -LOL- I used a stroller (my dd was 23 lbs at 6m/o) and we cloth diaper about 60% of the time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I still use a stroller most of the time, and my ds (20m/o) doesn't like the sling anymore, he wants to walk.<br>
We are planning on moving and are looking at Cloverdale (Clover Valley Station & that area) - who knows, we could end up neighbours... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Hi, are you guys still out there??<br><br>
I moved to cloverdale from n.van in may. I'm hooked in to the vancouver group but never thought to see more local. Glad to see you all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> .<br><br>
I'm supposed to be getting dinner on so I'll have to get back here.<br><br>
Quickly though, our son just turned 3 last week. We still BF (just 1 a day for our cuddles!), no vax, carried him, organic etc. oh, and co-sleep but we did buy him a bed just recently, we're pretty excited after 3 yrs! It's beside our bed and he starts there and ends the night with us <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

Hi Janet!<br><br>
Nice to see you resurrect our thread ! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
There seem to be a few of us AP-ish families in the Langley/Cloverdale/Abby area. We should all plan to meet at one of the community center drop-ins this fall. There is a great one in Walnut Grove - I just have to check the times/dates - I think they were Tues & Thurs.<br><br>
Anyone else interested???<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Mama's in Langley, Cloverdale, even Abbotsford: Please come out of the woodwork again!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
We're all settled here in Cloverdale (we moved in May), but I'm feeling increasingly isolated. My 3yr DS is quite happy to play alone quite a bit but he talks about 'his friends' alot. We haven't really met up with anyone out here and I am definitely ready to meet some like minded souls!<br><br>
We are and will be homeschooling and I would love to start building our community for that. I'm going to join and start going go to some of the activities from the Homelearner's South of the Fraser group.<br><br>
So, does anyone want to play?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bouncy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bouncy"><br><br>

I would love to connect with any local AP mamas!!<br>
We are in Langley City, not far from Douglas Park, and my dd is 3 (4 in March) and I have a 2 y/o ds.<br>
We are totally working with the idea of homeschooling or at least looking into alternative schooling (there is a fine arts Elem. near us)<br>
I know the holidays are a crazy time of year, but there is a drop in playtime at Douglas Park Center on Tues & Fri that might be fun for some of us to meet up at.<br><br>
PM me if you woould like to connect <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We are planning to move to South Surrey/White Rock this spring or summer... just thought I'd come say hi! As a non-vaxing, CDing, unschooling, etc. mama I'd loooove to get to know some other AP families.

Wow! I must say I am very excited to see people from the Abbotsford are on this thread. I've just moved here form Vancouver Eastside and I'm a little culture shocked. Compounding the feeling of isolation is the fact that having lived practially downtown since I was a teenager, I never learned how to drive. Trying to learn quickly now! i realize some of these posts are a few months old but if any ap/vegan/crunchy/whatever-parents in the Abbotsford area would like to get together please pm me. I only wish I could get out to Surrey/Langley/Maple Ridge etc. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

I noticed my link to this thread and thought I'd delete it as I never followed through, and here there were TWO new posts just today!!<br><br>
I'll take that to mean we need to get together. My son turned 3 in Oct., we'd love to get together.<br><br>
Should we try a park? A drop in group? I'd be happy to have people over? Or go to someone's house?<br><br>
Devin still naps and so I need to be home by 1-1:30, and we have a bit of time too between 3:30-5. Sometimes that's when we need out.<br><br>
Next week we have Wed free, any takers??<br><br>

Hello Janet!<br><br>
I feel silly asking this since I've lived in the Lower Mainland my whole life, but where exactly is Cloverdale in relation to Abbotsford? I'm Going to look on my map as well. If i can get out there I'm game for meeting up on wednesday or some other day that works for others. Keep in touch!<br><br>

Hello All!<br><br>
I saw that this thread was still active. We live in Cloverdale/Langley and I was wondering if anyone did end up meeting at the Douglas Rec Centre drop in. If you're planning on doing it again let me know I would love to come!!<br>
Thanks.
