NCYC - National Catholic Youth Conference

Meggar, Dorito and I went to the Sprint Center today for the opening of NCYC joining 22,000 other teens for the National Catholic Youth Conference! Our homeschool group was evenly balanced with 3 chatty girls and 3 quiet boys. :-) Our first stop was the Theme Park, called the "Reign Forest" because this weekend is the Feast of Christ the King. The middle floor of Bartle Hall was full of Catholic vendors, T-Shirts, music, colleges, Guitar Heroes, inflatable obstacle courses, and a sports center created by Benedictine College with a mini-soccer field, 3 basketball courts, and frisbee games. Hannah D. met the "Moos Brothers" and everyone was trading hats, pins, and cool give-aways (mostly cow themed). Everyone loved the glow-in-the-dark yo-yos. Actually Dorito had more than his share of free yo-yos from the Salesians. Fun tricks on the dinner breaks.
