I love you guys!

Well, I'm sitting here on my computer, when I should be sleeping (as usual). I was feeling just a bit sentimental, and wanted to go to this blog to feel even more sentimental.

JP, I am loving that you are doing the logo for our beloved Badger. I can't wait to see the final-final product!

Everyone else--I love running into you, and just catching up. I was lucky and was invited to dinner at the Davis' home. Max, I just love your family! Gabe is going to be a great missionary, and your mom is just awe inspiring. I always leave feeling uplifted; and you, of course, are great to have a conversation with!

Lark and I were finally room mates this semester...for about 1 1/2 months. Now she's off at Badger, trying to thump me in the position of "the chef." ;)

I don't really know why I'm writing all this right now. I just really love you all, and I miss you all, and I really do hope that we can stay in touch and really love and support each other in all the good things we do!

Hope everyone is doing well. To those of you who don't post very much: please do! Keep us updated!

Love you guys!

-Rachel, amazing ninja, chef extraordinaire

First off, there are a ton of exciting things happening with everyone and I am so excited. And there is even more! But I won't spoil the surprise for others:)
Just wanted to update you on the logo. Here is a latest version that I was toying with. My thoughts are back to basic and simple as everything including life seems when you are at Badger.

Zion The Never Ending Quest

Ok, so I just got back from doing Summit. Which was amazing for all of you wondering how it was. It was different from Badger that is for sure. However, that feeling of being in a group with a common purpose and goal reminded me of Badger. I wish I could have that feeling of Zion with me always. It is a quest that I have been working on and will continue to work on for forever.

I do believe I have had glimpses of Zion. I have seen Zion when people who get to sleep in the warm comfort of the lodge go out of their way to bring me a warm nalgene, or when someone knows when to call me at just the right moment on a bad day. I have seen it when trying to mountain bike a ridiculously long uphill road, and in my usual style have injured myself to the point that I can't even push my bike up the hill, and a close friend pushes it for me. I could go on and on. I am truly grateful for all of you that help me come closer to understanding Zion and how to build it. It is that never ending quest to find it and make it bigger. I love you all.


P.S. Jeremy gets home on Wednesday, Yay!! Also, Congrats on the BABY Megan, I can't wait to meet one of the luckiest children alive, do to the fact they will have amazing parents.
