Adventures in First Grade

Wednesday, July 4, 2012


This morning I woke up feeling nervous and it took me a minute to figure out why.  Oh yes, it all came rushing back.  Spray in 3, 2, 1.  Will I be able to leave the house or not?  I took a deep breath, closed my eyes, and walked into the bathroom.  (By the way, I don't recommend closing your eyes and walking when you just wake did not work out well.  Hello doorjamb!).

I counted to three and opened my eyes.

I am a normal tan color!!  What a huge relief!

To celebrate not being an orange zebra AND America's birthday:

Sometimes I stop and think about the courage our forefathers possessed to declare Independence and then to actually gain it.  My two favorite presidents, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, had amazing foresight in creating the foundation on which our country is built.

Happy Fourth of July!

  4. I'm glad the spray tan worked out for you. I was thinking of doing the same for my sons wedding this summer, but I'm such a chicken with things like that.
