Working at a boarding academy makes life BUSY! There's always something to be doing and somewhere to be. Yesterday was the first full day I've had off in over 20 days. I slept in a bit, watched the Sabbath school lesson on 3ABN, showered, and made some food. Around 4:30 Adam picked Laurie, Nina, and I up and we went the two hours to the soccer championship game. Our guys team made it but the girls didn't.

The team we played was almost undefeated this whole season. Our team was the only team to beat them. And our girls team was the only team to even score against their girls.

The game last night was pretty crazy! In the first 20 minutes of the game Jeremy C., got hit and the wind was knocked out of him. They thought it was asthma for a minute and ran an inhaler out to him. It took him a couple minutes to stand up but he was ok, though he didn't play the rest of the game. In the second half one of our guys had the balls, one of their guys kicked the ball, our guy fell, and then their guy kicked our guy in the stomach. He had been playing dirty before that and we were happy to see him finally get a yellow card. Another one of their players got a yellow card for tripping. Our team got one or two I think... mostly for talking back to the refs.

It was 37 degrees at the game. We were freezing sitting on those medal bleachers for 80 plus minutes! We got in the car and cranked the heat but it still took us a while to warm up. We were going to stop somewhere for some supper on the way back but we didn't know that the town the game was in was out in the middle of nowhere so the best we could do was taco bell. But we had a good time and a few good laughes.

As for this week, Wednesday is the beginning of homeleave and I'll be going to my cousin's house. We're going to a concert Wednesday night and I'll spend Thursday hanging out at their house. Then Friday I'm going to go to cosmotology school with my friend, Adri. And I'm not sure where I'll be for the weekend but I'm looking forward to not having to worry about anything for a few days.
