Meet the Felkers

The east coast has hippies too. At least now it does! In 2002, we packed up our family of mom, dad and 5 kids, left our home in southern California, and drove across the country in an RV. We stayed for a few months in Kansas, before continuing on to Delaware. In March of 2003 we rented a home and decided to stay awhile.

We are the Felkers. Our clan has grown more in the last 9 years to now include 3 more children and 2 grandchildren, and a zoo of furkids who have come and gone.

I am Heather, the family manager, aka "mom". Aside from keeping the home running and the chaos to a dull roar, I am a babywearing educator and owner of Sling With Me. In my spare time I am a La Leche League leader, a leader for our local babywearing group, and work on the board of our local homeschool co-op. I am also finding my way in a newly necessary gluten free diet.

My eternal mate is Brad. He is an aircraft mechanic by trade, and scout dad/ leader on the side. He also enjoys volunteering for our local little league each spring and supporting the swim team each summer.

Brad and I all dressed up a couple of years ago.

Together we parented Patrick, Cameron and Allyson, all grown now. The boys have both returned home for a time, Allyson is away at college near Kimber in Idaho. Still keeping us busy at home are Jayson, Dalton, Landon, Maddox, Sterling, and the grandkids, Phoenix and Ari. Yep, 7 kids, 13 and under. Never a dull moment around here.

In classic hippie style, we are an extended breastfeeding, babywearing, sleep sharing, selective vaxing, homeschooling, natural food eating, cloth diaper using, {fairly} normal family. Stick around and see how and why we do what we do.
