We are all safe and sound and on the ground in the Czech Republic. Of the twelve times I have come over here in the summer, this has been the smoothest trip we have ever had. Our connections were smooth (not to short and not too long) and every flight was great. We did leave the states a good bit earlier than we usually do and this had us arriving in Germany at 5:30AM on Tuesday and then arriving in Prague at 9:30am. The challenge has been staying awake here at our training facility. We were the first American Team to arrive so we have been in the position of waiting all day for the other teams and at the same time not having anything to do. We have filled our time with prayer hikes and games just trying to stay awake till 9:00 pm so we can get on Czech time as soon as possible. I was losing people left and right in the middle of sentence (often when they were talking) so I finally had to call it at 7:45 and send everybody off to bed.
