Also I'm a cold blooded person, seriously I am always freezing... so when one of the girls went for a swim in the lake water I was floored because the water was ice water! But then I shocked myself as I started peer pressuring all the girls to do the same (here I was in two down coats still shivering). We wanted everyone to go swimming, and then it evolved into jumping off the cliff! We all hauled over there some wanting to jump off the cliff and some refusing to. But as we all stood up there, one by one each of the girls gave in and jumped off the cliff. It was exhilarating and a lot of fun.

I finally got around to finishing this video from my girls backpacking trip this summer. I just want to say that I'm so grateful for such a great group of girls who inspire and support each other. I actually hadn't ever gone backpacking before except for one time in like grade school. I was actually really nervous, and the night before Brandon was making me build fires in our backyard and teaching me all his skills. haha! But I went and it was something I so needed. The peace and beauty of nature filled my soul, and the company was the cherry on top. I even got to get a morning run in all by myself and I ran just listened to the silence. Its amazing that as a mom, you really start to miss silence and to be able to meditate and think.
