Today was our first day with YFC in Frederick, Maryland. We're staying with the Bjorndals--a nice long stretch of a homestay. Their daughter is getting married within the year, so we've been able to share some of our recent experience with that process.

We're sticking to our standard busy schedule--about two schools a day this week, and we're doing the same sort of thing as we did in Scranton--showing our video in local public schools so as to improve relations between YFC's Campus Life program and the school administration.

This evening, we met up with a couple of YFC staff members, Josh and Luke. We went out for some good Mexican food, and then checked out the bowling alley. Unfortunately, it was league night, so we had to forgo bowling. Instead, we visited a little coffee shop in downtown Frederick. There, we passed the evening by playing Scrabble, playing cards, and sipping drinks amidst the ambiance of open mic performances.

It was so nice to hang out with some people our own age--they were very similar to us, socially, which made the the time very enjoyable. We laughed, we chatted, we had a great time!

And we get to sleep in a bedroom in a house :) We've been spoiled
