    We hope that you have been enjoying the blog. I’m glad that we decided to do this because it is helping us remember the details of each day. At this time, the events are starting to blend together after 7 full days of activity. It will be hard to leave here on Sunday, but we really do look forward to getting back to our dogs, our family and our wonderful friends in the states.

    Have a great day… see y’all soon!

I just got milk chocolate this time, but I will be trying others when we go back! So we all got our hot chocolates to go and started the walk back to campus! It was a long day and we were tired. Time to rest up because tomorrow starts a brand new day... tomorrow we'll be heading to Cobh! ...
