Day #1 (6/14) - Despite our best efforts at planning ahead, there were some in our house that stayed up all night packing and preparing, and were still stuffing things into extra bags the last possible moment. Although departing the house was a bit hectic, we made it to our meeting spot in plenty of time, full of anticipation, (and hopeful that we hadn't forgotten anything important).
Our flight took off at 10:30pm, California time. Although the flight was more than 14 hours, we all
had a great time reading, talking, playing on-board games, and of course sleeping. For those of
you praying for us, thank you! It went very well.
