Well, we finally made it to California. We left our church office yesterday morning with two vans filled with 16 people at MIDNIGHT. I tried to sleep during the day so that I would be rested, but of course it didn’t happen. Between packing and picking up the vans, I showed up at the church already tired, and praying that I’d be able to make the 6 hour drive to CA.
Luckily with the expertise of Tyler Lund and 4 Red Bulls, and gift packages from our CCS parents, we rolled into Disney around 6:30 AM. There were no near-death experiences but according to Tyler, (after I made this observation), there WERE some near- life experiences. 🙂 We all played frisbee in the parking lot after a few egg McMuffins, met up with the McKennas and the Keslers, and the group headed to Disney while I went over to Biola to get all of our rooms ready.
We probably took 20 pictures of our students in their zombie-like state from the night before… this was one of my favorite parts of the day: watching everyone from our group transition slowly from tired, to crankie, to delirious, to slap-happy, and to the final stage of sleeplessness which I call zombie.
Katie and Connor were the first ones to turn zombie before we ever got into Disney. We had to quarantine them so that the others wouldn’t get infected. Ha!
