Hey there everyone!
Last weekend was not only Nykerk but, but it was also family weekend. My parents drove up for the weekend and I really enjoyed spending time with them. My parents really like Holland. They are so glad that I decided to come to Hope. On Saturday morning they attended the president’s breakfast and said it was just great. They enjoyed meeting other parents.
Throughout the weekend, my parents and I were able to eat at a couple of local places down town. On Sunday, they had a family church service in the chapel. After chapel, we went out to eat then shopped the day away.
As a first year student, I am definitely learning to be more appreciative of my parents. It is nice to be in college and be independent, but I still sometimes miss my parents not being with me. However, college is so much fun and keeps me busy, so I don’t have a lot of time to stop and think about missing my family and friends. However, when I do get to see my family and friends; I love it!
The people here at Hope are so friendly and welcoming it’s like its own family and community.
Enjoy your week and spend some time with your family =]
