I've been Tagged!

Thanks to Journey 2 Learn for tagging me and challenging me to be transparent and to try to remember these things!

1) I wrote 3 encyclopedia entries for a Biographical Encyclopedia in College. This was pre-wiki and probably nobody reads it anymore. But I can say that I'm published!!

2) I was a little tour guide from 2nd to 6th grade at our local historical home. I gave tours by complete memorization through the house by myself. I loved it when an aunt or uncle or grandparents came to visit and take one of my guided tours. It brings tears to my eyes now to remember my Grammie and Auntie Sharon, who are in Heaven now, coming to take a tour from me.

3) A victorian homes magazine from San Fransisco interviewed me and featured me in an article about "wee tour guides." It was published a couple of years later and some of the facts were way off but it was about me!

4) I only had one small grammatical revision to do when I turned my Masters thesis in for the first time. I was totally shocked and felt so guilty that my friends' thesis were being torn apart that I didn't tell any of them.

5) Before I married my husband, I had only been to 6 states, now I have been to too many to count. And I love it!! My most favorite thing in the world is to take a road trip with our family, whining and all! Which brings me to #6

6) My dream is to home school the girls for a year and live in an RV traveling all over the continent doing mission services in each place. I can't tell you how much I want to do this!! I think about it all the time and hope to start planning out some of the trip soon. My goal is to take the trip when our girls are in Junior high. I actually believe that it will happen.

7) I wish I had stuck with the violin that I played for only 2 years.

Now, I tag these blogs/people to complete this survey! I cheated and only tagged 4 because I just don't know anymore who I think would complete the survey. Have fun ladies!

I hear ya about wishing I had stuck with my musical instrument. My son just started playing trombone in 6th grade and my younger one is a wild man on the drums. I hope they stick with it.

I love your home schooling/traveling idea!

Thanks for stopping by Uptake and leaving me a comment about where to find deals on the Texas State Fair! Very helpful.

parenting pink! You outed me! My mom is totally going to disown me now! Still don't know who I'm going to vote for and if she reads this, she will start sending me forward after forward about how I should vote her way for sure. I probably will anyway. There are a few issues I can't totally get over enough yet to vote for the donkey.

That's it for politalk on my blog, I promise.

Love your 7! My parents RV schooled my sister and I for one year while we traveled the country. It is an amazing experience. I hope it all works out for you to do!
