Love to Have Visitors!

This past weekend was so much fun. My parents came up this weekend to talk on the student parent panel for admitted students day. My parents were thrilled when they were asked to speak on the panel. My mom loves Hope College more than anyone at Hope College. I enjoyed talking together with them on the panel. The parents in the audience asked some very good questions about adjusting to college life, and they were able to hear the prospective from both a parent and student. My dad really enjoyed embarrassing me with the microphone on stage, and my mom loves to talk anytime she is given the opportunity. I actually hope we are able to do it again next year.

 During my parents’ visit, they took my friends and me out to eat. On Friday night we walked to the Peanut store downtown, and they bought me some candy. My best friend Ali’s boyfriend from Indiana came to visit so Matthias and I went out to eat with Ali and Steven at Salt & Pepper. It was my first time eating there, and the meal was so delicious.

de Bour’s. Once again, we enjoyed a delicious meal. I ate my whole omelet, four pieces of toast, and some pancakes. After breakfast I attended the admitted students activities fair then walked over to the Haworth for the student-parent panel.

Breakfast from de Bour’s

On Saturday afternoon I played soccer with a big group of people and went on a five-mile run with one of my friends. Then on Saturday evening my parents ate dinner at Matthias’s house. Our parents enjoyed meeting each other; we stayed for dinner for three and a half hours! As I said earlier, my mom loves to talk…

Sunday morning started off great with attending church at Manna. My friend Grace also had her parents in town. Our families went to the Alpen Rose for brunch, and we brought Bob and some other friends along as well. The food tasted delicious as usual, and no one left the table hungry.

I was so happy to have my parents in town, and they both loved the visit to Holland. I cannot wait to see them again in only a couple of weeks. In the mean time, I am going to enjoy my last couple weeks at Hope. Time is flying!!!
