2013 Classic Trip Journal

 

10 July 2013

First full day in the books as it is now 10:30 pm and kids are in bed.

Arrived at 9 am, got luggage without  issues and then long bus transfer to Flensburg.  We stopped about 1:30 for lunch and kids had bratwurst, schnitzel, pommes frites, fish and chips, water, etc.

Good first experience.  Weather is awesome, about 80 degrees.

We did have our first sit ups, my Houston boys, Donnovan and Carlos followed by Amber.  Now the seal is broken so lets see how  they respond.  More rules to be taught tomorrow so I am sure more stories as well.

We arrive at sports-center about 6:15, got into our rooms, 5-6 per room, and then went on a jog through town.  We did Ed style sit ups and push ups and returned about 45 minutes later.  Great sweat, exactly what we needed after long transfer.

Dinner was pasta salad, meatballs, sandwiches, and jello.  perfect.  and Yes, kids ate ENTIRE plate full.  Some had to sit awhile but it was awesome dinner. Kids will learn to be more flexible in trying different foods as well as taking the right  portions to start off with.

Only had one boy did the names tonight as kids are exhausted and happy to announce that Jonathan Otto go all names perfect so no sit ups for him.

Shower and bed and all phones in my room tonight.  If any of them go off, I see team sit ups in the their future. 


Breakfast club at 6:30 am tomorrow as we kick it in high gear. 

Tour off to great start as we have some great kids and I am really excited about the upcoming memories that we will create.

Speak with you tomorrow and thanks for all of the prayers and well wishes.

 

Ciao

Ed
