Hello from Phoenix!
I have so much to tell you about our travels over the past five days — freezing temperatures, a runaway semi, a gorgeous mountain picnic, another incredibly awesome homestay, breathtaking red cliffs, multiple wild animals, and a hair-raising experience in a parking garage. Alas, it is after midnight here (which means it is after 2am back home in Minnesota!), and I’ve been awake since 4:30am (local time) and up since 6am (cooking pancakes and hashbrowns for our sleepy-eyed and hard-working travelers). I am very tired, and I’m not sure my storytelling and/or writing skills are currently up to par.
I just wanted you to know that we made it!!!
We arrived at Hotel San Carlos, two blocks away from the Convention Center in downtown Phoenix, just before 4:00 on Tuesday afternoon, 6/19/12. Of course there’s plenty more to tell, and I have every intention of writing it down for you. But you will have to wait until I’ve gotten some rest.
For those of you with family members who are on this journey, I can assure you that everyone is in good spirits, excited to be here, and having a wonderful time!
Tomorrow, Justice GA 2012 begins! Wahoo!
