Less than 3 weeks and counting!

So I thought I would post some exciting updates about our upcoming trip! We leave in less than three weeks so there is a lot to do yet to prepare. As of today we got our train tickets! Yes, that is right, we are going to be riding the train from Frankfurt to Paris. We debated back and forth whether we should fly or take the train, but as we looked at all of our options we decided that it would be a lot of fun to ride through the European country side and see it from a train. As of a year ago, they got new trains in parts of Europe, one being the route from Frankfurt to Paris. So our trip will take just under four hours compared to the six that it would have taken a few years ago. I am not sure you can even check-in, get through security and take the flight in less than 4 hours. There is still a lot to do. We have our hotel in Paris booked, but we still need to book one in Frankfurt for the night before we fly home.  There is a lot of planning to do while we are in Paris as well. 
As for our time in Latvia, the students are busy with skits and Summer Explosion. We are having last minute meetings and getting our packing lists ready. Our two weeks there will be preparing for camp, being at camp and then debriefing from camp. 
We will continue to keep you updated as the time draws even closer!
