Congratulations, kids, you made it through another year of school. Hooray!
For those of you graduating tomorrow, great work. Life is full of chances to set and achieve goals and completing your high school diploma is a great place to start. We wish you the best as you head off into new adventures now that your high school days are history.
But, with every ending there comes a new beginning (good heavens, how cheesy can we get...I'm sure that is printed on a Hallmark card somewhere).
Sooooo, good news...
Only four weeks until trek!
Can you believe it?
We'd better put out a couple of important reminders for you.
Make sure that you are working to get all your things together so you aren't scrambling at the last minute to find something you need. Click on the "gear" tab at the top of this page for a list of what to pack. If you haven't put your pioneer clothing together yet GET ON IT! If you need help click on our "staff" tab and contact Wendy Stoddard or click this link for some tutorials on making your own pioneer garb.
Also, last chance..BREAK IN YOUR SHOES IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE IT YET! Seriously, you do NOT want blisters and you WILL get them if your shoes aren't well worn in before we leave.
We hope you all enjoy your end of school excitement and that you are looking forward to handcart excitement to come. Have a great summer (and we hope you see some trek in your near future)!
