1. I was too busy with school.
2. I was not too busy, just too lazy.
I apologize for the second reason. We've been on break this whole week, and I guess I got caught up in that "Wow, I really don't have to do anything right now!" mentality - it's been splendiferous, actually.
But, here I sit, waiting for the rice to cook and for Michael to come back with the rest of our dinner, and I figured, why not, I'll get started on the most longest overdue blog post I've ever had.
To catch you up, I would like to start with a visual of what we've experienced on our October break thus far:
Another visual, this time of the soccer field:
For the last three years (well, okay, two and a half), the new administration building has been in progress of being built. It is nearly finished, I think; I'm not exactly sure what else needs to be done, other than taking the plastic off the new furniture inside it and moving more stuff inside.
All in all - there's a lot happening on campus during this break, none of which we will be taking part in! While I'm on the topic of our school campus, I took a video during our last week of school before October break that you might enjoy. We had several rainy days (not just the "rain for an hour" kind - the "all day steady to heavy rain" kind) and our campus flooded quite nicely:
So, what have we been up to outside of, well, nothing? Well, there have been a lot of odds and ends in the last few weeks (all those events I mentioned in the last post, for example). School was quite busy, with the end of our first semester, report cards, etc. We were also able to get back into our regular Saturday routine: going to the pool/water park at the mall with our friends! It isn't just a pool - it's a rooftop water park, complete with lazy river, water slides, lap pool, and kiddie pool/play area. It's pretty sweet, actually - you should be jealous. :) The pool was closed for renovation up through the middle of September, so we weren't able to go. The whole thing was redone quite nicely, though, and we've thoroughly enjoyed hanging out there each Saturday morning for a couple of hours.
We have another week of break - school starts up again on November 4. The next week won't be quite as boring as this - we'll be heading to a beach with some friends for several days! I'm really looking forward to spending some time in the sunshine, relaxing and reading a book. That's what breaks are for, right?
That is really about all I have to say - after such a long time between posts, you were probably expecting something a whole lot more exciting than that. So sorry to disappoint you!
Until another time...
