Sometime around when this blog is set to publish, a busload of teens and adults from North Kansas City High School, members of the choral music program, will be arriving in Port New Orleans. Hopefully it won’t take too long after that to get off the chartered bus and onto the Carnival Cruise ship Elation.
They will have spent a long night, since they left NKC High School around 4 p.m. on Sunday. One of those students happens to be mine, and while this will be his second time on a cruise ship, it will be his first time going somewhere this long without family along.
It should prove to be an interesting and hopefully exciting week for him. It could be a quiet week for us — perhaps too quiet. We are praying and wishing a great time for him and for them all — and for the sanity of the chaperones. (We’ll see how the sanity of his parents fares as well.)
