It's official, we're blogging from Europe! We've said goodbye to the US for a year (or so), hopped the plane, and after a long and blissfully uneventful overnight flight, we're in the Zurich airport tapping into the high speed wireless. We're waiting for our flight to Belgrade, which has been delayed a bit, and then a bit again. The kids are trouping along, and except for a few sharp words going through security (Owen just has NO security antenna), everybody is pretty happy. Ella wants to get some M&M's for 2.90 Swiss Francs, but we've got only dollars right now, so sad girl has to make due with the box of Sees Candy that Brenna brought. Yes - Brenna is sitting in Switzerland eating a box of chocolates from California. Along with her first cup of coffee - in a paper cup from an airport kiosk. If all coffee at airports in Europe is like this she may not come back.
More soon about sad goodbyes, last-minute freak-outs, and the final days of prep.
