"I just love goats, man"

‘Tis the season for crunchy leaves, a chilly breeze and pumpkins. And goats, too, I guess.

SYM staff recently took youth to a pumpkin patch outside the city, where we took a hayride, tackled an 11-acre corn maze (shaped like the state of Washington!), and pet some adorable (and some not-so-adorable animals). As it turns out, cows have very long tongues and goats love us. Plus, God blessed our adventure with some sunny skies, which is always a win here in Seattle. 

In all seriousness, outings like these are moments of fresh air for many of the young people we encounter. For some of them, it's their only opportunity to step away from the burdens of homeless living. I am so grateful that SYM is able to engage young people in this way, through laughter and new experiences. Oh, and goats, too, I guess...
