I miss the sense of adventure. When I was little, I was basically fearless. At the age of 4 and 5 I would wander off at the barn my dad worked at and be gone for hours. What was I doing? Splashing in a creek, swinging on a tire swing, jumped around on hay bales. If it looked kinda fun, I did it. Now, I think through all the consequences, do a pros & cons list, then thing. WWJD? (okay, that last part was a joke...)
2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
All my life, my parent, especially my daddy have called me Katie Girl. I love it and I hope that they call me that all my life.
When I was in 1st-4th grade, I was really into the playground, playing pretend (i.e. house, stranded on dessert island, teacher etc.) but as I got a little older I like to play games like four square and basketball.
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a teacher or an "Army Guy" For as long as I can remember, those were the two things that I wanted. No one knew that I wanted to be an "Army Guy" until my senior year in high school when I actually joined and followed my life long dream. And I might still be a teacher...
5. What was your favorite toy?
6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
I was obsessed with tape, glue, and sciscors. I loved to cut stuff up, tape together toilet paper tubes and glue together anything that looked like it should go together. My mom washed some of my sheets a few different times to discover that I had cut a 100 little cuts into them. Lucky her, right? I also used big words apparently? I don't really know what my family means by that, but I was correcting them on their grammar by the age of like...7. Sad, I know
