    Our family has always been passionate about the great outdoors. Mostly because we live in the Blue Ridge Mountains, which is about as pretty a place as you can possibly imagine (if you have to imagine it, then please do come visit this area, ‘cause it’s worth the trip!!) But also because our sons love getting outside. Even in their deepest stages of internet-attachment, they’ve craved a way to expend some of their pent up energies.

    I hate speaking for our other SHS Admin, aandwsmom, but I’m pretty sure she’ll tell you herself (she’ll be chiming in for the discussion part) that the natural world has always been deeply ingrained into their family as well.

    About five years ago, I posted this question on the Parenting Beyond Belief Facebook page: “How do you help your kids achieve a sense of belonging?” I’d been thinking about this as my son Connor entered high school. He seemed a little disconnected from others in an unhelpful way.

    The comment thread quickly exploded into two camps. Some expressed outrage at the question. It brings to mind tribalism, division, us vs. them. One said, “This doesn’t sound like something an atheist parent should even ask! It sounds like a question from a religious parent!” Another said it was “Very disappointing. I’m a member of the human race, that’s all I need.” ...

    TFZ, let me know how you like the Instant Pot. I've been looking those over lately. My dh, who does most of the cooking though, is such a tradionalist, I'm not sure he'd allow one in the house! ...
