Because It's Sunday!

Who doesn't like to go back in time and remember what you were like as a lil' one?! Well, head over to A Complete Waste of Make Up and Link up to  share what you were like.
Sunday Social
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
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.

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
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?
I really didn't play with a lot of toys. I had a cap gun that I really liked. And I always enjoyed playing Hotwheels, but what it came down to, was that when my parents got me some awesome toy, I usually had fun with it for like a week before I went back to spalshing in the creek or doing something that involved more imagination that toys.

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
I'm the one in the chair. I still sit with my feet up like that...My mom gets so mad because I do it at the dinner table.

I was 3 years old in this picture (right) I remember getting dressed for this day and feeling like a lil' clown. I thought I was so cute.
I was a regular Picasso, no? Both of my sisters have pictures just like this one, and their teachers helped them. So there's are awesome and I have a lumpy face and crazy ears...(confession? I still draw about this well...)
1st grade...I was sooo proud of those missing teeth and was so excited to get my school picture taken without them. Check out my ears! They still stick out like that...

I'm Katie. I'm a 20-something Soldier & student taking each day one step at a time. Living through all the growing pains that come with becoming that person that I always wanted to be & finding that bright side in all of this Camo-Colored Chaos. You can get to know more about me here.

I miss the fearlessness too. I remember how much fun it used to be doing flips on trampolines. And now I'm scared to just jump on them. I would love to be able to do one of those flips too, because I remember them being so much fun.
