It's time to be pioneers! Last week Mark and I were part of the support staff for a handcart trek that involved 290 kids from our stake (a collection of 8 Mormon wards, or congregations).
Hello heat and sagebrush!
At the start of the week - our pioneer clothes are still fresh and clean! We are standing near the handcarts that the kids will be pulling through the dust and sagebrush all week.
See the handcarts waaaaay over there...
Dorothy and Ken. We were all Ma's and Pa's together 4 years ago. This year Dorothy and Ken were a Ma and Pa again, and we were on the support staff. It was always good to check in with them at the meals and hear how things were going with their family.
Oh, and did I mention dust? Ugh. In your shoes, your hair, your clothes, your eyes, your teeth. Dust.
I don't have photos of two of my favorite things that happened after the company arrived in Zion. And I want to hit the "publish" button now and finish getting ready for church. But I'll write about them soon. I promise.
