Parents Weekend Finally Here

10.06.2009After much anticipation, parent's weekend has finally begun. For most it started a little bit later than most of my other friends. After class, I went straight to work where I worked from 4:30-7:30 coaching the youth cheerleading team at Twigs Gymnastics. Before hand, I knew my mom and grandfather were going to pick me up, so when it was getting close to get off work, I saw them walk through the door, and I can't lie, it was pretty exciting. They got to watch me for about fifteen minutes and see what my actual job is. They got to see the actual youth cheerleading team, which was pretty cool for me, to show my family what I was working towards. After practice was over, I went out to give them both a hug and see how they were. My friend Anthony and I decided to tumble for a little bit to show my family what skills we had.

Tired from tumbling, my family and I left and went to eat at Bonefish Grill in Dayton. I had eaten there a few times, so I knew what to expect. We waited for a table for over half an hour, but for the meal we ate, it was well worth it, not to mention, being around family. I had calamari as an appetizer and for the main course, a 10 ounce filet mignon with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. By the end, nothing was left on my plate, but I was stuffed. This is one of the many aspects I love about parent's weekend, it gives me a chance to eat an awesome meal off campus and majority of the time not having to pay for it.


Content with the meal we had eaten, my grandfather headed back to the hotel, and my mom and I went to my house to drop of a few things before we went to pick up my mom's boyfriend, Terry, from the airport. We eventually picked him up, and they dropped me back off at my house. They had a pretty long day driving from Georgia, New York, and flying from Rhode Island, so they went to catch up on some sleep before tomorrow. We have a pretty big day planned tomorrow. I'm running the on campus Frerick's 5k, cheering at the football game, then having people over at my house tomorrow night. So it should be a pretty good time. I'm really excited to have my family here, so it's been great so far. But I must hit the bed. I got an early start to my day tomorrow so I need to get some sleep. I hope everybody has a great weekend.
