Birmingham just rocks. It’s not only the home to Magic City Slingers, but it’s also the home to Fresh Air Family, a nonprofit organization that helps families enjoy the outdoors with guided hikes and other outdoor activities led by experts.
I recently had a meeting with some of the folks who make Fresh Air Family work, and our two organizations are going to work together in 2008 to help babywearers enjoy the outdoors and help outdoors enthusiasts enjoy babywearing. In addition to some Fresh Air Family events especially for Magic City Slingers, there are some other opportunities for Birmingham-area babywearers to get the most out of this relationship.
If you’re interested in joining a Fresh Air Family club especially for babywearing families, please vote in the poll on the sidebar. Kids can participate in the club, voting for activities they’d like to do, and even holding club offices. So please consult with your school-age kids before you vote. 😉
Also, Fresh Air Family can organize campouts. We could do a lot of babywearing instruction at a campout (and do a lot of other fun stuff), and the older kids would love it. If this is something your family would be interested in, please let us know by voting in the camping poll on the sidebar.
