Ireland has landed




Hello you all,

We have made it safely here in Belfast, Ireland . It was a "wee" bit long plane ride, but we managed. We are all so excited to be here and we will continue to send you updates throughout the week. We had a little bit of trouble getting through customs, but it was okay and they eventually let us into the country! So we are leaving for Carlow tomorrow (which is in the Republic of Ireland) and that is about a 5-6 hour drive. Carlow is where our first camp will be and it starts Monday! We are so excited and I can't believe I am here!! Later today they are taking us on a bus tour and then we will catch up on sleep! Right now we are having tea and crumpets...yeah tea and crumpets. Totally crazy and I am loving every bit of this culture!

Love you all and God Bless, Melinda and Ireland team

Haha, glad to hear you're guys made in safely. You'll be at Lucan hopefully when you read this. Hope your first camp went well and you're all prepared for the next one. You all rock.
