The Natural Parents Network Gathering I Couldn’t Attend

On the weekend of October 8 some of the amazing women and men who work hard to make Natural Parents Network the wonderful community and resource that it is got together for a meet-up at two locations across the U.S. — the Midwest and the Northwest. This was the first time that many of the volunteers have met in person after a year of collaborating on this amazing website. Please scroll to the bottom of this post for a list of links so that you can read what some of the other volunteers had to say about this incredible First Annual Natural Parents Network Team Get-Together!

I wasn’t able to attend, but thought my readers would enjoy checking out the post from many of those who could. It will be interesting to read the different perspectives, and you get to see photos of them in action. Who doesn’t love to see some of their favorite bloggers doing something besides blogging?

From what I’ve seen so far, it looks like they had a really good time. Maybe we’ll plan a southeast get together next year. Wouldn’t it be nice to hang out on the beach? I think so!

I’ve enjoyed working with and getting to know these lasdies over the past year. They are serious, silly, and real. I’m looking forward to meeting them in person in hopefully the very near future.
