Winter Vacation

12. January 2009 | Kategorie Uncategorized

With only a few days left of my winter break, I figured it was time for an update. Winter break offically started on December 19th. I had my finals the whole week before that, but it was a surprisingly unstressful week. The only test I really stressed about that my bio exam. It wasn’t comprehensive which made it a lot less stressful, but I was still a little stressed about it. I did well on all of my exams which was a real relief. On the 19th, my last final was over by 8 am so I packed up and did some christmas shopping in Sioux Falls before Tyler and Jon met me. We ate some lunch, ran some errands and then we headed to Dear Mountain so Tyler could try and teach Jon and I how to snowboard. It was a pretty long teaching, slow learners you know, but it was really fun.

The next big event was Christmas eve and Christmas day. My family and I spent Christmas eve at Grandma Rausch’s house like always. It was a night full of songs, great food, and wonderful family time. Then the Val Rausch’s headed home and opened the rest of the presents. (Bryce and Linds were there in voice and spirit.) The next morning everyone went to church and got ready to make our annual trip to Sioux Falls. Instead of going with the rest of my family, I drove over to Corona, SD and had Christmas dinner with Tyler’s family. From there Tyler drove to Sioux Falls and we carried on with the Miles side usual festivities.

The day after Christmas is usually a shopping day, but this year was a little different. Tyler and I spent it driving to Spearfish. His family’s tradition is going skiing/snowboarding (thus the lessons) the day after Christmas. It was really fun. We were out there for four days. The first and last were spent on the road. The second day was snowboarding from nine to 3ish. We also visited the Ugly Horse in Deadwood and ate some taste pizza there. The rest of the night was very quite, full of lots of z’s. The next morning, day 3, was like a usual Sunday morning for me, church then brunch you know. We spent the rest of the day in Deadwood being tourist and watching Tyler’s cousin, Ben, lose his money on slot machines. We were in the number 10 saloon to see the 4th quarter of the Vikings game. They won by a point and qualified for the playoffs!

For New Year’s eve I went over to Tyler’s house and we watched Eagle eye. In my opinion, it was a really great movie. Brenna had a bunch of girls spending the night, so when I got there the house was still pretty active.

The rest of vaction was spent doing a variety of different activeties. I went sledding and snowmobiling with Tyler. I did house work for Dad. I also spend a lot of time with nothing to do. Now I am spending my final days packing and getting ready to go back to school. Hopefully the plan is to get almost everything ready to go today, tomorrow go to Pierre and see Dad get sworn in, and then on Wednesday head to school. Because of the snow, my family and I might not be able to make it to the swearing in,sad!

    The worst part of winter vacation was all the packing up and traveling. And family. But not you, of course. Just, you know… dog family… and Bryce.

    We made it to the swearing in. Weather was the pits though.
