We are so proud of our daughter Megan! This Sunday we celebrated her graduation from Hope College with many of our extended family.
We want to thank God for all that He has done in her life over the years, and especially the past 4 at Hope
We also want to thank so many of you that have contributed to her success - by your encouragement, by your loving care, by your 'taking care' of her while we have been in Uganda and Lesotho. It is not easy being away from our kids, but we have seen them taken care of and loved on by so many of you when we have not been able to be physically there. Thanks too to our Uganda and Kenyan friends that helped to 'shape' Megan while she was in school there.
It was great to get back in the USA a week ahead of time to 'reset' our clocks and be 'awake' for her graduation. Graduation at Hope always falls at the same time as
the Holland Tulip Festival so we got the added fun
of seeing over a million tulips in blossom around Holland.
Graduation day was sunny and we enjoyed having family there with us. Adam flew in from DC and Kelly drove
up from Taylor University in Indiana. Sally's mom and sister and kids came as well as some of our family. It was great to see not only Megan graduate but also some of her Rift Valley Academy classmates.
After grad we went over to Aaron and Jenn's (thank you again!) and had a party to celebrate Megan's birthday, her graduation and Mother's day.
Lots of food and conversation, getting caught up with family, seeing the newest addition to the Pepper family - Dan and McKenzie's daughter - welcome to this crazy family Alexis Pepper.
So what's next for Megan?
For the next two months she's coming back to Lesotho with her sister to spend their summer (our winter) together. She interviewed with CityYear and is waiting to hear about a job in Boston that would start late August. Meanwhile we will spend till May 21st here in the MidWest enjoying time with family and friends.
