Our family is trying to get "back to basics." We feel like God gave us this earth and it is our responsibility to be a good steward of His gift. We recycle as much as possible. We use cloth diapers most of the time. We have tried our hand at gardening. We try to eat whole foods (does chocolate ice cream count???). We would like to live more simply. Russell would love to go "off the grid" eventually but as of right now, that is a dream for our future.
