Week 2: Favorite Childhood Memory
My favorite childhood memory would probably be staying overnight at my Grama and Popa's house almost every Friday, Saturday, and some Sunday's. We were able to stay Sunday nights and Grama and Popa's because my Grama was a Foster Grandparent in our classes at the Elementary School and would take us to school in the mornings since she would pick us up anyways if we hadn't stayed overnight at her house. My Grama was a Foster Grandparent in my elementary classes from Kindergarten all the way through the Sixth Grade. Once I finished elementary school she 'retired' from being a Foster Grandparent.
When we stayed over at my Grama and Popa's house we would also play doctor or hairdresser with my Uncle Ted. We would wrap his arms, hands, and/or head in ace bandage wraps and do his hair with tons and tons of hairspray or gel. At night we would play hide and seek and hide from him and he would try to find us. Most times he would have the better hiding places and when we got close to finding him he would jump out and scare us and usually make us scream.
A memory I have with my Uncle John is every winter for years and years we would go skiing at Bogus Basin. We would go every year after Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas Eve. Then he moved to Seattle. Boy, have I missed skiing.
