**If you would like to read an overview of our life down here in Grenada, head over here to my friend, Betsy's blog. She is currently on vacation and asked me to do a guest post for her Travel Series. While you're there, be sure to look around at the adorable felt headbands and clips that she makes. I'm sure you'll be able to find the perfect fall accessory from her collection!
For the first time in many months, Ryan and I enjoyed a somewhat normal weekend together. He had his first round of midterms last week, so he was free to enjoy himself until 8:00 this morning. I loved having him around for a few days, and he was able to get caught up on some rest and recharge before classes start again. He is currently in one of the most challenging terms of medical school, but is doing very well so far and actually enjoying the material.
We began our weekend on Friday evening by going out for pizza and ice cream with our friends, followed by playing games in their room. The next morning, we had a communication seminar that all new Resident Assistants are required to attend. However, we were the only ones who actually showed up, so they had to postpone the meeting. We spent the rest of the day watching college football - the perfect way to spend a fall afternoon (if only it felt like fall down here). Last night, we combined all of our weekend activities into one evening and ate dinner with friends while watching Sunday Night Football and playing a game. As much as we would like this to be a weekly routine, Ryan will diligently spend every free minute in the library from now until his next test.
