Back to the Books

Our first full week of school commences. With too much effort, Lindsey and I finally woke up this morning around 8:30, but managed to be out of the house by 9:00 and on our way to school. This morning we had Conversación and Cultura y Civilización. I LOVE our conversation class; the profesora is amazing.

After class, Lindsey and I went to buy bus tickets. Then we headed home. For lunch, Miguel made us pasta with tomato sauce, cheese, and bread. Our papá is diabetic, and when señora is home, she usually tells him what he can and can't eat. But today, mamá was out during la comida, and so papa poured half a bag of shredded cheese onto his pasta! "Una poca de libertad," he told us. 'A little bit of freedom!' He is SO funny. Señora lays down the law, but when the cat is away, the mice will play. Even Miguel was acting with a little more authority than usual!

When I'd finished eating, I had to hurry back to campus for my 3:00 History of the Spanish Language class. This is my favorite class because it is the most challenging, but also because it is the most interesting. When it was over at 5:00, I came home and rested. I skyped with my mom and my friends Emily and Sarah Kate.

Lindsey got home around 7:30, and we did our homework! We were getting really hungry when Miguel came to call us to dinner around 9:45. Tonight, we had sopa de patata (close to mashed potatoes), pizza, bread, and some kind of fish. To top it off, I had some strawberry yogurt. For some reason, I was so giggly tonight. It seemed to me that everything our family did was hilarious, so I would start laughing randomly. Miguel told me it's called la riza tonta, or la riza fluja - similar to what we might call the giggles. I was embarrassed and I didn't want them to think I was laughing at them, but I simply couldn't help it!

We came back up to our room, I skyped with Jacob, and now I'm getting ready for bed. Hopefully we will have better luck waking up tomorrow morning - I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Con amor,
