Welcome to the Wensman and Fritz blog for the 2018 summer! On this site, you will be able to find information about our crew for the rest of the summer. We will be posting updates about our crew meetings and everything everyone is learning throughout the summer! In addition to the blog posts, we will be adding photos and keeping an updated calendar so everyone can follow along with our progress while we prepare for our trip! As school finishes, we will be meeting more frequently to prepare for our trip. We are so excited for this upcoming adventure with the girls. McKenna and I would like to start off by introducing ourselves and what our first meeting consisted of!
To begin, I’m Mackenzie Fritz. I am currently attending the College of Saint Benedict, with a major in nursing. Fall of 2018, I will be starting my Junior year here at CSB. This will be my first year guiding, but my third trip through Les Voyaguers. My first year trip was in the summer of 2016, and in the summer of 2017 I went on the Middle Track Far North Trip. I am so excited to co-guide with McKenna and am also so excited to have the opportunity to work with your girls and share this experience with them!
And I’m McKenna Wensman. I graduated from Cathedral in 2016 and am currently a sophomore (almost a junior, yay!) at the University of Minnesota working towards a career as a nurse. I went on my first trip through Les Voyageurs in 2015 and was part of Mackenzie’s Middle Track Far North crew last summer. I am so excited to be guiding along side one of my past crewmates and friends. While this is my third trip through LVI, it will be my first year guiding. Thank you, parents for sharing your daughters with us this summer. We have a fun summer ahead of us and I hope that you and your girls are excited as we are to start our adventure together!
As most of you may know, on March 31st we had our first get together. It was great to see everyone together for the first time! We went to Perkins and got to meet each other over a delicious breakfast. We can already tell its going to be an awesome summer!! The girls had many questions, and answering them made everyone that much more excited! The girls were able to share more about themselves to each other and start to get to know each other before we begin the process of preparing for our great adventure. This meeting made us so much more excited for the parent meeting and the rest of the summer!
Just a reminder that the parent meeting will be on April 22nd at 6pm at Cathedral High School. We are excited to see everyone there!
Please contact us if you have any questions!
Our last supper will approach quickly, and we cannot wait!
With great excitement,
McKenna and Mackenzie
