So long, farewell…
The title is harkening back to 2008 when we were in the Sound of Music for Schmeckfest. Check out our nunsense photo album on facebook.It’s quite entertaining.
Yesterday was Renee’s official farewell party at the camp (her last day is March 16). We had some camping gear laid out along with the map of the trail and our schedule. It was fun sharing some of our enthusiasm and knowledge of the trail. “So, how long is this trail?” and “How many miles are you going to do a day?” were common questions. If you need answers to these questions yet, you will find the answers on our blog. Scavenger hunt time! 🙂 Or you can come to our chapel on the Freeman Academy campus March 12 at 10:10am.
Renee held up remarkably well considering this day was focused on all she will leave behind. Tears only entered her eyes once. However there will still be grieving to be done yet. Mary made all Renee’s favorite snacks, so this week she will be munching on left-over corny mix, mini fruit pizzas and peanut butter rice crispy bars with chocolate on top. Aren’t you sad you missed it? If you come out to camp, she might share. A super THANK YOU to all those who came out to camp to celebrate with her.
For those of you that would enjoy sending us some gifts as we are hiking we have made a page called maidrops.Here you will find suggestions of items to send, along with addresses and time frame for mailing. We look forward to these packages. It will be fun to see what surprises people send. In other words we are open to items other than the suggestions….as long as they are light and small.
In all we are getting to the point where we’ve done all the research and planning we can and are ready to just get er done. Or at least get er started…
Next week you can look forward to a post about beef jerky. YEAH! We know you are on the edge of your seats. This is the extent of our excitement these days. Every little thing counts.
Goodbye until next time.
