Thursday morning was spent at Dr. Ransom's old high school Glenelg High School in Glenelg, Maryland. The school's Madrigals performed for us. They were amazing. We performed a few songs and did a little recruiting but they had to leave. We sang a couple more songs as different classes came and went. We got to take a break and explore the school a little and then we took a short trip to the Columbia Mall for a little down time before our performance at our hosts' church.
The church catered a meal for us and then we did a little mini concert with Hand bells, FAITH, and the whole choir performing. Afterwards we went home with our host families again and had a little down time. Our hosts were Jerry and Barb Cooper, the church's pastor and his wife. They were so much fun. Students Molly Beasley and Sarah Dunn stayed at the same host home as Kaylee and I. We watched TV for a little while. March Madness was on so of course I was only partially involved in the conversational chit chat. We decided to play Imaginiff... and that is when things got a little more interesting.
We popped some popcorn, poured ourselves some sodas, and gathered around the table. Jerry went to bed so it was just us girls. We had so much fun getting to know each other a little bit better. It was a night of almost constant laughter. It was so much fun. We really hated that we had to leave. We stayed up way too late but it was all totally worth it. We actually lucked out compared to everyone else. Because Jerry and Barb were the pastors of the church we were supposed to meet up at, they lived in the parsonage which was not even ten yards away from the church probably so we were close enough to walk.
