Trek and stuff

After all the craziness of sewing and planning and packing and attending meetings, it is finally here. We leave our house at 5:15 in the MORNING to meet up with everyone at the Stake Center and we leave from there no later than 7AM to head out to the trail head. There, Jon and I will be assigned a family. We'll go from not having any children to have eight teenagers. I'll let you know how that goes after the fact.

While we're a little nervous, we're also really excited. We'll be dressed up as pioneers, we'll be pulling a handcart, we'll be sleeping under the stars, and we'll be playing games and participating in reenactments. Jon's favorite part of it so far is knowing that we don't have to pack our own food-- every meal will be provided for us. He says that alone will make it the easiest camping trip he'll be a part of planning.

It should be good. Wish us luck!

Also, a happy bit of news that I don't feel like I can share on my photography blog yet-- I have been asked to share a photo of mine in one of the next newsletters that will go out by The Impossible Project. I've been photographing all kinds of subjects with film by the Impossible Project for over a year now, and it has been exciting to see how far they've come. I'm so excited to be a part of their history.


  1. wow! it has been weeks since i've checked blogs. i have missed so much!

    first of all, i get a prize because i read all 3 girls camp posts! :)

    second, good job making it through girls camp. i knew you were going to have a great time. girls camp is the best. i found myself missing it while i was reading your posts. i miss the "solo" time where you go out and write your testimony/read your scriptures. my very favorite though would have to be singing at night with the flashlights. i'm so glad you had the experience of going up to camp. the girls in your ward look fun. cute pics.

    so, i'm excited to hear about the trek. i want to hear all about it. that is something that i have never experienced. it seems like it would be awesome. i bet you guys had a great time.

    also, congrats about the impossible project. that seems really cool. i will have to hear more about that when i actually see you. it sounds like we have a lot to talk about. now we just need to plan a time to hang out. :)

  2. Chrissy,
    Okay, you are amazing! You will get a prize. Does cookies sound good?

    Maybe you'll get called back into YW some time. There were some really amazing parts of Girl's camp that I hope to get to experience again next year. I think I'd get to soak things up and appreciate them more the second time around.

    I'm going to call you today to set something up as far as hanging out. I have free time again!
