I'll admit that I wasn't truly on board, only because I really wasn't in the mood to come up with a pioneer wardrobe for four boys.
Thankfully, Goodwill came to the rescue, even if we did wait till the last minute to shop.
Joseph did not want to go. I wasn't going to make him go until he told me that it was going to "waste his time."

People took time off of work to go.
A waste of my 15 year old son's time?
I think not.
Much to his dismay (and he was a HUGE grump about it) we made him go.
Here are the hand carts that they had to pull.
Each kids was assigned a "family" that they had to live with for the weekend.
This is Josh's family.
|Pretty sure that pioneers didn't have sunglasses.|
That's Tim for ya.
