I don’t really get homesick at college, but I do miss people from back home. Due to the fact that I live in Arkansas, I rarely get to see my family throughout the school year. But this weekend, the entire family (with the exception of my beloved basset hound, Jabba) came up to see me! Both of my parents are English professors at the college in my home town so they were able to get some funding to come to Calvin’s rather famous “Festival of Faith and Writing.” My brother tagged along for the ride, but also did the “Friday’s at Calvin” program while he was up here. The weekend I spent with them consisted of gardens, dining, and lots of smiles.
