18 January 2014: and...we're home!
Our long trip home, beginning at 4pm New Zealand time in Christchurch and ending at JFK at 12:15am, lasted 26 hours, but our spirits have not dampened. Although everyone was tired, the energy of the trip still seemed to bubbling from all. The last hurrah for our group included a few photos, lots of hugs, and a final huddle and cheer. We had an amazing time in New Zealand and, with some patience from you, we'd love the opportunity to share that experience with you through pictures and stories. Enjoy those re-tellings, as they are an intricate part of your trip participant. Listen and ask about the details; they've learned a LOT over the last three weeks! Dr. Moran and I have learned much about our students and we feel very fortunate to have been able to do so through the flights, the activities, the housing nuances, and supermarkets we've experienced together. Once again, thank you for sharing your student(s) with us!
