Today was our last day in Houston. This morning my roommate and myself woke up early so we could come downstairs to eat breakfast, which was really good. We had a crepe’d muffin with the choice of blueberry compote filling, that Mr. Scharfenberg made, or a poached egg on top that our host Tracy had made for us.
We sat in the kitchen for a while talking about our trip and things we accomplished and contributed in each house. Then we packed the car with our belongings and left for the airport, but not without saying our goodbyes and thank you’s to our generous hosts.
We made our way to the terminal where we all separated to buy souvenirs. Our flight from Houston to Atlanta departed at 11:20 am central time and landed around 2:00 pm east coast time, which is 1:00 central time. When we arrived to the Atlanta airport and after grabbing lunch, we spent time writing reflectiond on our service trip, reflecting on how Houston impacted us emotionally and mentally. Later that afternoon, we took off for Dulles. When we arrived the group headed to baggage claim — some of us met our parents at the baggage claim doors while others headed back to campus.
