This weekend like many of my fellow SMC students, I went home for Fall Break. My break started after my Statistics class on Friday. My class ends at 1:10 and my Dad met me in Alliot right after class. I was carpooling with another girl from my softball team and a nearby town and she didn’t get out of class until around 3, so I conned my Dad into lunch at Sweetwaters. My Dad and I headed into Burlington and had a delicious lunch. We both got burgers. He got the “Green With Envy” burger and I got the “Bed Rock” burger. Then we headed back to campus to pick up Carleen. After getting Carleen at the suites we headed south towards Connecticut.
Friday night I got home pretty late so I just hung out and caught up with my parents. It was good to see my parents after so long being at school.
Saturday I slept in which was a great change after waking up for class in the week and softball on the weekends. I went to Kiwispoon with my best friend from home Dani. Kiwispoon is a frozen yogurt place that moved in during the summer and I am somewhat obsessed with it. I had pumpkin flavored, YUM! Next, I headed over to my neighbor Landon’s baseball game. He is 6 and it is so cute to watch him play. After the game, I went home and we had dinner with the neighborhood. My neighborhood is really close and it was awesome to see everyone.
Sunday, I went to church with my family. Then, we went to Brueggar's Bagels for breakfast. After going home and organizing my room for a bit, my mom and I went to a vineyard in my town. The vineyard is called Paradise Hills and it is right in Wallingford. We had to drive down this gravel road and then BAM, its easy to forget that we were in my town. We met my Aunt, Cousin, Grandma, and some of our family friends. We had so much fun talking and laughing while enjoying some yummy treats. On Sunday night, we had dinner as a family. It was really great to get my family together to eat.
I spent Monday studying and packing my clothes back up. I also added some more clothes to bring back to school. Monday afternoon I went back to my high school to visit some of my old teachers and catch a volleyball game. It was really weird but fun being back at Sheehan. It was nice to see my old teachers and catch up.
That brings us to Tuesday. Tuesday I spent packing up, procrastinating studying, and watching my dad and his friend lay tile in our basement. Now, I am back on my way to SMC!
I loved being home, but I am so happy to be back at SMC!
