Thank you Shea from Flying through Life on giving me my first blog award!
The rules of this award are to say 3 random facts about yourself and then pass the award along to 5 other bloggers.
My 3 random facts:
1. Kids are drawn to me. I don't know if it is my height or my manner, but often times kids come up to me and talk. And when I pick up the kids at school, their classmates always come up to me and show me things and talk to me. I am pretty sure I missed my calling as a teacher, but I do consider going back to school and becoming a teacher.
2. I was a lifeguard for a couple of summers when I was younger. I rescued two kids during that time. I also rescued a kid at the pool on our recent trip to Vegas. It wasn't very dramatic or anything, but the little girl was in trouble and her mother was about 3 feet away. Not passing judgement in the least, but the mom just didn't notice the girl struggling. I always say that you can read the eyes...the eyes show if someone is in trouble....and her eyes were screaming! The girl simply walked in too deep, and her little tip-toes weren't helping her. I simply grabbed her by her armpit and pulled her up. She was fine. The mom was confused.
3. I have an extra bone in my foot. I learned about said bone in college. I was actually a pretty decent volleyball player, but within days into pre-season my junior year I sprained my ankle pretty badly. After all the x-rays, and whatnot, the bone was discovered. I always saw the bump in my foot, but I just thought everyone always had that. I also have a tattoo right around my extra bone area. I got the tattoo, a purple star, when I was a PCV. We took a weekend trip to Prague and that is when I got it. And that event is a story in and of itself! This tattoo artist's name was Parzba. I guess if you look hard enough you can see my extra bone...it is about 2 inches in front of my tattoo.
They say tattoos are addictive, but I haven't gotten another one yet. Steve and I talk about getting tattoos, something to represent the kids, and I am sure it will happen sooner or later.
Since this award was given to me by a fellow pilot wife, I am going to pass it along to other pilot wives that blog:
