What Up Michigannn

Well, I wasn’t sure if I would make it, but I made it through the week. Thankfully it is Friday and classes are over for the week. My parents are coming to Holland tonight, and I cannot wait to spend some time with them. I feel like I haven’t seen them in a really long time, but it has been less than a month. They are coming to bring me clothes for Florida and Mexico.

I leave on Thursday for Marco Island, Florida with my friend Grace. Hope has a winter break so we get the following Monday and Tuesday off school. Grace and I really wanted to enjoy our break and thought Florida would be the perfect place to do it.

During Spring break I am going on a mission trip to Juarez, Mexico with eleven people from Hope and some people from my hometown. My dad wants to have an informational meeting with all of the Hope students attending the trip. I am so incredibly excited! Florida is in less than a week, and Mexico isn’t too far behind it.

Well on Wednesday afternoon my friend Marga and I drove to Ann Arbor for the Michigan vs. Indiana basketball game. We first ate dinner at my cousin’s house in Ann Arbor then headed to the game with my cousin and his friends. Michigan won and the game was a lot of fun! I had never been to a Michigan basketball game before, so I thought it was a great experience.

On the way home, Marga and I jammed out to music and enjoyed each other’s company. Of course, we stopped at Biggby on the way there and Starbucks on the way back. There is no such thing as a road trip without coffee!

Well that’s all I have for now! I’m excited to see my parents and I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
