**COUNTDOWN TO 36** 18 days left

This is exciting. If you are still hanging with me on this countdown, I promise you that there will be some cool moments, exciting moments, sad moments, messy moments and as of now, living and loving life moments.

*

So age 6 was cool, cause that’s when I really started to remember life. I remember Grandpa Solomon so vividly.

*

Age 7 is when we moved. Mom put a map on the table and flipped a coin, and where ever it landed is where she was going to move. She flipped the coin and it landed on AZ. True story. She initially wanted to move to Florida. She was relieved when it landed in AZ cause then we would be closer to Grandpa.

*

We first moved to Phoenix. We lived across the street from the fairgrounds. I think we lived in another house with a roommate before that but I cant remember which came first.

*

I was in first grade when we moved here and I went to Indian Bend Elementary School. Remember yesterday I said my first language was Spanish. Well that was still the same in AZ, LOL. I spoke more Spanish than I did English. Mom still wonders how they passed me to second grade if I barley knew the language. So she enrolled me at St. Gregory’s Catholic School to repeat first grade. I was the tallest one in my class and the darkest one. Mom always had 2 braids in my hair. I hated how this one boy would always pull my hair, so one day I turned around and punched him in the face. He didn’t pull my hair again.

*

I was a girl scout and started as a brownie. I loved being a brownie, it was so fun. That is the only thing I remember doing.

*

This is the year mom met my sister’s dad whom my brother and I call our dad Raymond.

*

Age 7 was huge cause we moved to a new state and I became a girl scout. Fun times!!

*

Let’s wait to see what age 8 has for us tomorrow. Hopefully it’s exciting!!

*

love, me
