It's a girl!!

It was an overcast September day, when my mother went into labor while at work. She was rushed to the hospital and gave birth to me, Tracy. I had flaming red hair and blue eyes. Now, I have strawberry-blonde hair and gray eyes. Go figure.

I don't remember a lot of my childhood, due to the fact that I was a baby. I learned to swim when I was 3 years old, and learned to dive from the diving board at age five. I was an active child. I started in a private school at age 4. I loved school, and was able to read and print when I left Kindergarten. I even go to play one of the three little pigs in a play. I was the "stuff." ;)

Enter first grade and loved it. My teacher was great. The most exciting thing was the first grade circus. I was the ringmaster. I was so cute. We had tumblers, clowns, poodles, "fat"lady (stuffed with ballons), a tiger and bear, body builders, and tight rope walkers. I still have my outfit!!! You know, it doesn't fit anymore. ;)

Second grade hit and I was writing in cursive. We had a huge word to spell: hatzakorzian. It was on our spelling test!!! Think about it, a 6 year old spelling that. Second grade wasn't my fave, but I made it through with E's for EXCELLENT!!!

Third grade came and wasn't one of my faves at all. My cousins taught it. She was at least 200 years old! We had a bake sale to buy a new globe; only we never got one. We figured she used the money to buy a new hip. She always beated her fists against her hips when she walked. To a third grader, it made sense!!

Here comes fourth grade. Boy did I hate it. The teacher didn't like me and I didn't like her either. At least it was mutual. She constantly sent me out in hall, even if I didn't do anything!! One thing I do remember is, we had to learn the capitals of the states, and I wasn't in class to learn them, so I cheated. Yes, I know it was bad, but I had to! We also took an overnight trip to Frankfort and Louisville, Ky.

Then came fifth grade. Boy did I love this class. My teacher was really nice and I still keep in touch with her even to this day. One of the cool things that we got to do was make a twin of ourselves. We had to make a real life size dummy, with the exact same clothes; everything. I really enjoyed that, only I didn't like the fact that there were two of me running around this world. I'd never want to get cloned!!! We also made a haunted house in our classroom. Now, when I was young, in second, third, and fourth grade, I went through the haunted house for a quarter. They were a joke, even to a kid. We decided that ours would actually be scary. We had kids crying for their mothers when they left. Needless to say, it was a success!!! Lastly, we got to go to Huntsville, AL. We even went inside a real shuttle! I thought I was the coolest thing on earth. I really enjoyed fifth grade.

Well, that about sums up the highlights of my elementary days. Yes, those were the days. But, as most people would agree, I wouldn't want to go back to them for the world. I have much more better things that lie ahead to go back and repeat my younger days. Well, I guess if you are truely interested, you can follow me to my middle school years. Hope you ahd fun in the first 10 years of my life.

To middle school we go......

I'm sick of reading about her, take me back!
