Hi Kristen! It's great to see you here. I'm so glad you made the connection here and on my blog. I know we (and others) will have a lot to share. I love your blog and heartily recommend that you share your posts here, in our Blog section. I look forward to learning a lot more about your family and activities. There are fellow Coloradans here. There are lots of families in the Natural Families Network. Like you, I'm the mom of a high schooler who gets outdoors with the family as often as possible, and I'm also a lacrosse mom! I'm sure I'll see you real soon. Cheers!
