In the beginning there were 2, and those 2 were missing something. So they went out and discovered the perfect combination of each one and made 3, but 3 was not nearly enough so soon they made 4. 4 was good for a while, a long while actually, and then something was still missing so they decided that number 5 was in order. So here we are a happily little family of 5!
Ok that is little corny but it is really how it happened. I met my husband in 1996, we got married in May of 2001, had our daughter in October of 2001, then added a son in August of 2004. We thought things were good but decided that it might maybe one more might be even better! So in June of 2010 we added our second son to the mix.
So yes we are a family of 5 people and many pets in a house that is a little too small and these are our adventures on our path to becoming a green family.... ok, ok, a lite green family. Because as an American family with average kids there is no way I can convince them to become totally green and off the grid. But hey a girl can dream!
