Mitch's last test was on Wednesday so we planned to go to Galveston on Thursday but then that morning, the private school called me in to sub and obviously, I didn't want to turn down a job. I subbed in kindergarten which was very fun. I had forgotten how hard it was to remember how to form a p, or what sound the o made. It was fun to see those little hands try and spell as they tried to sound out big words like computer.
So the next day, we packed up some lunches (we're on a tight budget and eating out doesn't really fit it anywhere...I don't know why but I love budgeting by the way) and headed down to the beach in Galveston. On our way down there, we hit a pretty good rainstorm and from the looks of the dark sky, a hurricane could have been rolling in for all we knew. We just kept driving though, and eventually we made it to the beach! It was so much fun to see the ocean waves and jump in the amazingly warm water. We only stayed for a couple hours though because after a while, we got enough salt water in our throats to last us a few months, and the storm was getting worse so we ate our lunch and packed up.
Another fun thing we did over the break was go to the BYU women's soccer game. Someone is our ward let us know they were coming to play Rice and offered us tickets. We decided that it would be fun to go and cheer on our Cougs. The Rice soccer stadium was really pretty with the med center in the background all lit up at night. I can honestly say that this was one of the first nights that Mitch and I felt like we were just comfortable outside instead of blazing hot. I hope Houston starts to cool down because I am missing the fall that I know in Utah. There were quite a few Cougar fans there, mostly from our ward.
