Yesterday, I picked my two older girls and husband up from a four-day reenactment hike – Pioneer Trek – with the area’s church youth group. Yes, I got my teenage daughters to dress in long skirts and bonnets (ahem…I sewed the bonnets myself!), skip showering for several days, and walk for many, many miles pulling a heavy wooden handcart. They cooked all of their meals over a fire and slept without pillows under the stars.
And when I picked them up, they were smiling. Incredible.
Ok, that’s actually a kissy face.
Um…Twizzler was too young to go on Trek this time around, but he sure had fun picking the girls up and hugging as many stinky teens as he could…
Necco was leading the way with the boys. She’s a strong girl!
PS – my husband attended Pioneer Trek Thursday through Monday as a helper and had a blast as well.
Have you ever done anything like Trek?
