Fall, Clean and Quiet

The house is Clean. Rooms vacuumed, floors mopped, and the dishes are being cleaned in the washer. I can smell the last batch of laundry washing and I have my favorite candle for Autumn, muled cider, burning! And to make it that more peaceful, my baby is falling asleep to lullaby's and the hum of the fan. This the most silence and peace I've felt for a long time. This is a vacation to me!

Well I needed some advice. Lance and I have been asked to participate in our stake's Trek, as a Ma and Pa. Luckily it's only a day, 8miles, so I'm not too worried about the walking. When I was in high school we did a three day trek, and I have to say, it was an awful experience. I didn't enjoy it at all! I've come to the conclusion, I have to gain a relationship with the youth first, before I do anything else, which I don't think will be too hard. Not to brag, but the youth flock to my husband. I need some extra ideas about what any of you enjoyed on your treks!? Anyone, please!

That is totally how I'm feeling right now! I just finished cleaning and Carson is sleeping! HEAVEN! :) The only activity I remember doing on the trek was WALKING in the pouring rain through the mud. Ha ha. Sorry no help here! Oh I do remember my ma snuck in some candy, and we loved her!

k my ma and pa were way rad. they were strong and i think the most important thing they did was help us with the work. they were awesome examples to us and totally made me want to work harder! i'm sure you'll be great chels, you are awesome with people. also, it was nice that our "parents" gave us a lot of time to ourselves for scriptures and journal time-i loveed the trek! [except for the rainy/muddy part like jamie said! totally remember that! yuck.]
