We are the worst at blogging...

So we've been here on Sint Eustatius for like 2 months now... it's hot. By the by, this is Darcy, I feel like I have to say that because I generally don't do this. So, school is going well, I feel lucky that my degree (that I almost finished) was in Health Sciences because most, if not all, of the classes I'm taking this semester are pretty much review. I'm enjoying it though and still learning a lot. I'm told that 2nd term is the worst of the 4 so, looking forward to that!
Some people will be grossed out by this but my favorite thing is Anatomy lab where I get to dissect the human body, I never thought I would be ok with this, let alone enjoy it but it's amazing, the human body that is. My group is very good about letting me do most of the dissection as I seem to enjoy it more than anyone else and I've had some good feedback from the professor who used to be a general surgeon back in India, which is always encouraging.
Lianna and Pearl are enjoying it here, pretty nice that immigration doesn't allow anyone to work here so they get to just hang out, enjoy the island life, and hopefully make me a sandwich! Haha, jk, I can make my own sandwich... Pearl is getting so big and speaking in complete sentences here and there, she is so independent. Whenever we let her walk anywhere she fights pretty hard not to hold hands, but Statia drivers are insane and try to drive as close as possible to people and sometimes hit them. So I will be looking for a cheap car once my student loans snafu if finally figured out! Ha, seriously, I applied for student loans in January and still don't have the money in my account!
Anywho, that's it I guess, we'll try to be better about posting on this thing, I guess I should do it more since I started it! Lianna is in charge of the pictures, I don't even know how to use our camera anyway!
