So We Don't Forget

Just in case you've been following me on Wednesdays, Wednesday's Walk from Lynnette's blog has changed to:

Just click on the button above if you want to join in (link up) or just to read what it's all about!

Today's topic is:
School Days - Tell us about a school memory from when you were a child - or school memories with your children. If you're a homeschooler, feel free to tell us something about your homeschool day (a special activity, first day of school, field trip, etc).

I'm going to be brave here and tattle on myself just a bit. I was a little naughty (or maybe ornery) in grade school. I had a problem talking! (I know imagine that!) When I was in the 2nd grade (I went to a catholic school), I had seven (count them) SEVEN pink slips! I was almost expelled!!! Can you believe that? All of you who just said yes, I'm giving you a look right now! I would get in trouble for talking and when the teacher would ask me to stop, I would kindly tell her, "Just a minute. I'm not done yet!" And then I would get a pink slip. A pink slip was NOT good. Especially when I got home and had to explain AGAIN why I got another pink slip. When I got my 7th pink slip, I had a personal invitation to go, not to the principals office (already been there!), but to the PRIEST this time. Oh boy was that BAD! I was told that if I got one more pink slip in the 2nd grade, I would be expelled! Believe you me, I did NOT get another one. I guess the threat worked.

I would like to say that all that is WAY behind me and I'm so much more mature and well behaved, but probably NOT! I still have a little bit of an ornery streak in me at times. Okay, all of you that I gave the look to earlier, I'm giving it to you again! STOP THAT! I just know how to turn an awkward situation into a fun situation! YES, THAT'S IT!

And I wander where my girls get it? From their father of course!!! HEE HEE!!

I also got in trouble for talking in school a couple times. But hey, that gift of gab has paid off with my blog! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog today. If you have anymore questions about school choices, feel free to ask me anything. I am an open book. :) Grins!

Hi Chatterbox! (Are you giving me the look?)

I was the quiet one in school, I was always drawn to the talkative ones like you!

Same in my marriage. My husband is the talkative one! (smile)

Good post!

Hi Kelci!

So nice to meet you on my Wednesday's Walk today. I'm kind of late getting around. Loved your post...imagine all those pink slips, girl! You would love my daughter...she is full of chatter.

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog today. I pray you are continuing to feel supported and cared for as you miss your sweet baby girl. I am so sorry for your loss...

Well, you ornery little booger! ha! I was a perfect little angel. (Well, maybe not exactly) My little sister was the talker. We called her (well actually her friends at work used to call her) Lonna Lip Flapper. HA HA!!

So glad to hear you still have a little ornery in you - I'm sure you're a blast. We have to have that Starbucks visit soon!
