Steph's idea of a weekend off of studying is going on adventures. Maybe a hash, or a hike to a waterfall. A day spent snorkeling on Magazine Beach or sunning on Grand Anse. Trying out a new restaurant and watching a sunset on the sand.
While Josh's idea of a weekend off is slightly more relaxing. It includes lounging on the couch watching football, LOTS of football. Maybe watching a movie in bed. Eating pancakes and cookies, both of which I would be in charge of making. And staying in our PJ's ALL DAY LONG.
Do you see a bit of a difference here?
So this weekend we compromised.
On Saturday morning, while Josh slept in late, I headed to Grand Anse for beach day with Bel Air Children's Home. This home actually has really young babies. And I love to go and spend the morning cuddling and playing with them.

This morning, we headed to church on campus with CSA (Christian Student Association), came home and had lunch, and then spent a couple hours on the beach throwing the frisbee. Tonight we are heading to dinner with a few of our Newcastle friends. Tomorrow Josh is back to school and will be hitting the books hard in preparation for his next set of tests in 6 weeks. If I haven't already mentioned, 4th term is no joke.
I wish weekends like this could happen more often, but I guess it makes me treasure them even more because they don't, even if I do have to compromise every once in awhile.
