We're Here!

Well, I've got to tell ya...I've not had so much fun on a road trip in quite awhile! I can't wait to get my camera downloaded with the videos and pictures. (I forgot to bring the cable :-( ) These "kids" are great. I am having a fabulous time getting to know all of them, and it's only day 1.

This CIY is well thought-out. They've built in plenty of community time: time for group discussion as well as play. There's also personal encounter time with God. They just find a spot and read the Word or pray and worship or just write in their journals. I'm excited about this for myself as well as for them. I know when we have conferences with KFC, there's not a whole lot of personal time. Dinner is considered personal time. But at those functions unless you can manage to eat alone in your room - it's never personal time. So I'm overjoyed that's builot-in here. The music is of course fantastic! And I have the tub o'snacks in my room - so I get visitors which is another cool part. Even when it's after midnight. Yawn!!!! But thankfully enough, my body is so used to getting up before 8:00 a.m. our time (that's sleeping late for me-usually up around 5:30 a.m.) and it's an hour behind here. But that also means me and some girls didn't get to bed till around 3:00 a.m. our time.

And one thing's for sure - I will be getting my exercise! It's literally a walk uphill both ways experience since we have to use an overpass pedway to get to the meeting areas. Well...better go brush my teeth and get this day rolling!

Glad you all arrived safe and sound. Tell my hubby I love him!
