♫♪All my bags are packed I'm ready to go♫♪

♫♪I'm leaving on a jet plane♫♪

Ok, I'll stop singing now. Seriously though, I'm all packed, and I leave in less then 14 hours. Wow it's finally here :). I'm almost done everything on my to do list. I just have a couple stops to make on my way to the church to meet up with the rest of the 10 people going.

We are meeting at 5:30pm to pack our 2nd suitcase with the supplies we are bringing with us. Then we are meeting back at the church at 2am to begin our night of travel. We'll be flying out of the Detroit airport. We have a layover in Miami, then we fly to the Dominican.

Well, I must sign off now. There is still some last minute things I must do. Later!

T Minus 65hrs and Counting

I can't believe I leave for the Dominican in less the 65 hours. WOW! I'm pretty sure I'm completely ready for the trip. We met as a team on Sunday evening to finish getting all the craft stuff ready for the 3 day camps we're going to be doing. On the weekend I went shopping with Jocelyne for miscellaneous stuff we needed for the trip and I've started packing.

I'm just getting so excited! I've been watching videos online of people who went where we're going to work with Haitian children and it's getting me so pumped for it. But at the same time I don't feel anxious about the trip. I just hope I don't get all anxious and sleep deprived in the next 2 nights. I definitely need to get my sleep since we'll be leaving at 2am to begin our 14 hours of traveling. I'm sure I'll be getting lots of energy from adrenalin and excitement.

Woah I'm getting super excited just think about it. Well I must get back to work.
