When my mom told me that she was sending me something fun in the mail I was not expecting something as awesome as the alphabet book about Colorado that I made in 4th grade. I think there’s some sort of federal law that all kids everywhere must study the state that they live in during 4th grade. As a Colorado kid, my teacher made us make an alphabet book about the state. The results are somewhat hilarious. I laughed at myself for a good ten minutes.
Two things: 1) I apparently was really bitter about having to edit these things and 2) I really loved the Baby-Sitter’s Club book series, written by Ann M. Martin. And another thing, one of my interests was geography?!
My love of aspen trees started at a young age.
My love of 14ers also started at a young age. Also my lack of ability to draw.
In case you were wondering, people don’t live in the tiny houses. You’re welcome.
I’ve been a believer in women’s rights since 1996. Oh yeah, 4th grade Paula was sassy!
I also had beef with Lewis and Clark. It was raining!
Many things in my life have changed since 4th grade but I like to think that I really got off to a good start at a young age. Mountains, aspen trees and Rocky Mountain National Park? I’m still the same Paula. Thanks for sending me some fun mail mom!
