Welcoming a new member of our family.

Executive Director, Kim LaViolette Mosteller and her husband Isaiah, along with some happy grandparents, are proud to welcome an addition to our family.  Walker Lune Mosteller was born on 5-29-18 at 9:07pm.  He weighed 6lbs, 5 oz and is 18 inches long and growing. 

Isaiah and I realized how hard it was to name a baby, but we did agree we wanted it to have meaning in our lives...

"Walker" is a nod to the grounded mode by which we enjoy experiencing our neighborhood and our world. And like our walk together on the Camino de Santiago, we think of becoming parents as a long pilgrimage walk - a journey that we can never really be prepared for in the whole, but the magic happens amid the accumulation of thousands of small daily steps.

Throughout the pregnancy we referred to him as little "lune" which is french for "moon" since he was conceived on our honeymoon.  When he decided to enter the world under a full flower moon, we decided to keep it as his middle name.
