My day in age group associations

My morning was spent with: three-year-old and three-month-old
  • "But mom, who was my mommy and daddy when you and daddy were little kids? No, mom! Who was my mommy and daddy when you were little? No! Who?"
  • Tears
My early afternoon was spent with: kindergartners
  • Penguin crafts
  • Snacktime
  • Zipping coats
My late afternoon/evening was spent with: college students
  • First day of Dance 171, Beginning Clog
  • "Sweet! You're from Wyoming, too? I've never met anyone from Wyoming in any class I've ever taken at BYU before! THREE people are from Wyoming in this class?"
  • Me: "My name is Emily. I graduated in 97 in International Relations." 23-yr-old Teacher: "Was that part of the Marriott School?" "No, the Kennedy Center. The major has changed a few times since then." "Yeah, I'll BET it has!"
My evening was spent with: mostly septuagenarians
  • Relief Society dinner and self-defense class
  • Surprisingly strong 70+-year-old women
  • Lots of talk about memory loss, willing 101-yr-old mothers to die, Candida
All were enjoyable in their own way. But looking forward to the last half hour of my day when I get to have some solid conversation/kitchen cleaning help/maybe a back massage from a person: exactly my same age. Holla for 34-year-olds.

Wyomingites like to clog. There is always clogging in Wyoming parades. I would know, I'm from Wyoming.

Emily said...

Kalli, I know, right? Where else would all the Wyomingians on campus converge but in a clogging class?!

abby said...

i can't believe you are clogging- awesome. is there really not an international relations major anymore?

Sarah said...

are you a clogging lover yet? are you going to have to make up your own dance with a partner for your final?

Emz said...

love seeing the contrast of where our days start and end [as well as all the good stuff in the middle].

BTW - love your new template.

one of my first roommates at ricks was from texas and a clogger.

she also was a kleptomaniac.

watch your purse,
just sayin. . .

Sarah said...

i'm back to say that clogging rocks. i hope you liked it. even in your socks.

and did liz make your header? it looks so good!

When I first read this, I thought "23-year-old teacher! What!" Then I realized that 23 is not really that young after all. But, 34 is young too. ;)

What an interesting day you had! Love thos questions from the kids. They will always keep you on your toes. Or is that not where you want to be when you are trying to clog?

amyegodfrey said...

Very cool that you're clogging. I would like to do that. Interesting that you had the whole spectrum of ages that day.

Natalie said...

I took clogging. my parents felt sorry for me and my general lack of coordination so they got me a private instructor:). ya, i was that good.

amen to the conversation with husbands at the end of the day. priceless:). Even if they are a year or two older:)...

Natalie said...

Emily, i love websites who write about many home business opportunity. You're all over that aren't you? don't miss out:)!
