So in a little less than a week from today, I will have some visitors from home coming to Limerick. My sister, Megan, and her friend Alyssa are coming to visit next week and are flying into Ireland on Saturday morning. I am really looking forward to this, as the last few weeks have been busy, hectic, and a little stressful. It will be great to spend some time with people from home and to show them a little bit about how I have been living for the past few months.
There are a lot of things happening next week as well in terms of basketball, and coaching; which will give the girls a chance to see a bunch of games and get a little insight into Irish basketball. Aside from the basketball, I know the girls will be interested in traveling a lot and seeing different parts of the country, which is a must considering the great things the country has to offer. I have encouraged them to see as much as they can in the 8 days they will be here, as who knows if they will ever get the opportunity to come back.
The one thing that I have been able to take so far with having people come visit so far, is to truly enjoy the experience with them and make every day count. Making great memories and having great experiences to talk about in the future is something that is often taken for granted. Memories are something that last a lifetime, and being able to make them with people you really care about is invaluable.
I look forward to keeping you updated on when the girls arrive and how we decide to kick off next weekend!
