Makin' ourselves at home

Things have been running pretty smoothly so far. The layover at O'hare airport allowed a few people to catch some z's while others stretched their legs and explored terminal C. Our trip down to New Orleans unfortunately wasn't as quiet as it's predecessor. We had a screaming baby for the duration of the flight. We also were a little more cramped then our last flight and we struggled to get comfortable. It also didn't help that the captain started out the flight telling us we were going to be delayed because of a chipped propeller. That 5 minute delay turned into a 45 minute wait and see. I woke up twice thinking we were in the air but we were just driving around the tarmac waiting for a turn to take off. The rest of the flight was pretty uneventful except for the person in front of me who decided to recline their chair into my face when I was sleeping. After we landed it didn't take us long to get our luggage and rental van and hit the road to Peace Lutheran Mission Center. It's a cozy complex right off of the main highway. There's a kitchen for us to use, multiple showers, and separated sleeping spaces for the guys and girls. We're sharing the campground with a group from Roanoke College in Virginia. After we claimed our sleeping areas we went exploring in Slidell,LA to get a quick lunch. We all got our orders to go and sat outside because it was 60 and sunny this afternoon. After lunch we rested up before our big night out to Mulate's in the French Quarter. I'll let someone else fill you in on the rest of the night. My fingers are getting tired of typing on my phone anyway. I writing this entry 007 style as I lay underneath a sheet so I won't wake up the guy next to me.
