1. A special thanks to Kyooty who included me for this Back to School tag. I am tagging all my readers and blogging buddies. So, if you have a blog, please let me know in the comment section that you are playing so I can read your response. And if you don’t want to play, no problem!
2. What was your Favorite School Item to buy?
??? For the 12 years, I went to parochial school and wore uniforms, so I never experienced the joy or drama of back-to-school shopping. This year, my oldest daughter is entering kindergarten, but I am home schooling her. My good friend just sent us two large boxes of hand-me-down winter girls’ clothes that the Ladybug and Bumblebee had a blast trying on. That is the extent of my back-to-school clothes shopping experience. Thanks a million Steph!
3.What was your Favorite Subject in School?
By far, English and History. I love to read and I love to write. I love stories of old, fiction and non-fiction. Currently, my girls and I are listening to audio books of the Chronicles of Narnia. Ladybug loves the series, she is really into knights, dragons, swords, and shields now. Bumblebee loves anything princess.
4.Did you ride the bus? Ride in the carpool? or Mom/Dad drive you in?
Actually, I walked or rode my bike to and from school for the most part. My Dad worked and my Mom was in heaven with Jesus by the time I was in 7th grade. When I was 16, I bought myself an orange 1973 Super Beetle. I loved that car!
5. Did you have a Sack Lunch or Cafeteria?
There was no cafeteria at my grade school or high school, so it was sack lunch or nothing. We did have a killer Bagel Bakery down the street from my high school. I still love bagels, but try to stay away from all of those carbs.
6.What is your favorite memory from school days?
Hanging out with my friends, especially Stephanie. We were kind of crazy in high school, but we sure had a good time.
7.(Bonus question?) What I didn’t like?
That everyone went away to college, but I did not. I ended up joining the Army so I could see the world and get money for college. I was stationed in Europe for three years and received $36,000 through the G.I. bill and the Army College Fund. Nine years later, I graduated cum laude from Fresno State, with a much better grade point average than I had in high school. Life is a journey, not a race.
