"We arrived at the hotel yesterday evening and immediately jumped into another time of debrief. It was a refreshing time together as a team. This morning we leave the hotel at 5 a.m. to catch our 7 a.m. flight. O.o. I'm up at 4. It was nice to sleep in an air conditioned room and get a warm shower this morning, so I feel somewhat clean finally. Hopefully we will be giving hugs all around 16 - 17 hours from now!"
At this end, we've coordinated three drivers (two of the same as before, but now my husband is one of the "chauffeurs") and three vans (one borrowed) and one U-Haul trailer to go down and get them from the airport. I will be checking FlightAware.com to watch for delays. And once they're in Houston, Steph can call/text.
Their flight is due in around 7:15 p.m. Of course, they need to get everyone's luggage, get loaded in the vans, and drive up to St. Cloud (and get unloaded and picked up at Calvary at I-don't-know-when).
