This past Thursday was Thanksgiving, and I was lucky enough to be able to spend it with my Sport Changes Life Family up in Belfast. It was so nice to see all those involved with the program, including the Victory Scholars. Although not everyone was available to make it, it was still so much fun to see those who could come. It wasn’t with my actual family, but being able to gather with a group of people I care about and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal (nontraditional, but still delicious), is what Thanksgiving is all about.
I loved hanging out with my Irish family, and it made me feel a little more at home. Speaking of home, I guess my cousins were missing me too, because they photoshopped me into the annual cousin picture this year (and added an extra 4 or 5 inches to my cousin Mandy but who’s counting?).
After Thanksgiving dinner, The other Victory Scholars and I enjoyed a nice night on the town, where we got to catch up and have some fun. It was a blast, and I hope we can all get together again soon!
