Sand, Sun and Fun!

Hello Everyone!

Yesterday, Holland had a high of 80; the nicest day in 2011. The Pine Grove was filled with people playing music, reading a book, kicking a soccer ball, swinging on a hammock, long boarding, napping, and just hanging out with friends. Students broke out their warm weather clothes and shoved their jackets and sweaters in the back of their closets. I personally loved pulling out my flip-flops; they have missed me.

I typically spend Sundays working on homework, but this amazing weather needed to be recognized. Instead of working on homework, I played in the pine grove, long boarded, visited the beach, and ate at Qdoba.

The beach was absolutely beautiful. The water felt very chilly, but the sun felt so nice. Little kids were flying kites and making sand castles; they were so cute. I wanted to join them, but I swung on the swing set instead.

After our visit to the beach, we drove around Holland in my friend’s Mercedes convertible. It was so much fun sitting on the back of the car and enjoying the warm weather. We blasted the music as loud as we could and enjoyed riding around in Holland.

Needless to say, I did not complete any homework yesterday, but I worked at JP’s all day so I made up for my work from yesterday. It is important to enjoy college, but schoolwork also needs to be completed (at least that is what my parents tell me).

I hope you all have wonderful weeks!

Until next time,


Drive Around Holland!
