Day 2 blog of the day 2

Wow I am on a roll today.  I am actually completing day 2 on day 2!  Thanks for checking in.  I am glad to see that my hiatus did not cause me to lose all my readers.

Day 2 -Describe your high school self.  What extracurricular activities, if any, did you participate in during high school?




This was me at 14 in Europe.  I was such a brat.  My sister and mother also look like they are having a delightful time don't they!  The scariest part that is was during the first few days of the trip.  I can only imagine some of the pictures that were captured towards the end of our two week adventure.  Please remind me of this picture when Shazam and I decide that a European vacation is a great idea when Little E is 14.  


This picture really isn't a true reflection of who I was in high school but I certainly had my moments.  I was actually pretty happy in high school.  I wasn't part of the popular crew but I had a core of great friends.  I was a gymnast and most of my non school time was taken up by practice and competitions in both my Y team and my high school team.  I often went from one practice to another.  I was in phenomenal shape and ate about 6 meals per day.  I was an average to above average student and pretty much the same type of gymnast.  I didn't mind not being the star.  I work really hard for my B grades and was diagnosed with a learning disability in the 11th grade.  This really made a difference for me and made so many of my struggles make sense.  Once I more fully understood how my brain worked it was amazing how much easier school was.  It made senior year and college so much more productive and successful.  High School was not the best years of my life but it was fun.  I don't miss being a teenager but I think I came through pretty unscathed.


Since you have not seen any photos of Little Miss E I will leave you with a few recent shots.
