Parents’ Weekend

Hi All,

I just got back from Parents’ weekend. This is a really fun weekend when your parents come to classes on Friday and Saturday, and if you’re on a sports team, they get to watch your game too.

My mom came up and so did my aunt. They followed me around to class, and they had other things that they could go to as well. For example, my mom went to the meeting for parents if their child is interested in traveling abroad (I am, I want to go to China next winter), she went to the college counseling office, and she had a meeting with my adviser. On Saturday, I had a home field hockey game against Northfield Mount Hermon, and we won! The final score was 3-1. Afterwards, I finally got to go home.

I had been getting a cold, so it was really nice to go home and sleep all hours. I didn’t exactly do anything interesting except sleep, get some things I needed for school, and do homework. Although it doesn’t sound exciting, parents’ weekend is great because I get a three day weekend (we had Monday off), and I get to go off campus. I missed my room too. It was a great break from school. Especially with midterm grades coming out tomorrow, and I have to take the PSATs on Saturday. Although I’m stressed, Upper year has been pretty swell. To keep with my consistent 11:30pm bedtime, I will wish you all a goodnight. Talk to you soon!
