One thing you need to be aware of is that the MIPS architecture (like many RISC architectures) has a number of instructions that do not take effect right away.
Instructions that fetch values from memory, for example, take so long to execute that another instruction (that doesn't access memory) can be executed before the memory access completes.
The MIPS architecture executes one instruction during such load delay slots.
