Senior English Honor's Class: Besides having to read Beowulf, Shakespeare, and more, we had a major Senior Research Project, so Mrs. Wheeler arranged for us to travel to PSU for a research trip. Remember this was an honors class - supposed to be the top in the class (so what was I doing in there huh?). Well, everything went well during our research - all18 of us spreading out at the library, gleaning, searching, feeling cool since we were at a college. Long story short - Ryan and I couldn't find anyone else, so we found the closest place to eat Pizza Hut. That's where we ran into most of the rest of the group - all in the back room - drinking beer, no teacher in sight. Ryan and I stayed at the front, ate our pizza and got out of there. On the bus ride back, there were only 3 students (sitting at the front of the bus) that didn't drink. They thought they really got away from it, but one week later, we were all called into the office - 3 at a time. Only one of the 14 who had been drinking confessed and the rest of them blamed the three of us for getting caught. They had no idea that their talking in the halls and their actions on the bus - they narked on themselves! Connie and I had more respect for him than we ever did for the others.

The Olympic Games were held in Los Angeles that year and the flame went through Caney, a nearby town where I went to school, so we did the only thing we thought we should - skipped some of church to see it pass by.

A week after returning from Haiti, Mom and Aunt Jerre, favorite cousin's mom, took us to see Oklahoma! at an outdoor theater. I made it through high school, but would I survive college? Come back next week to find out how this KS girl adjusted to college life.
Well, there is only one more week left for this Piggy Tale adventure. I hope that you've learned a little bit more about me (if you made it though each week, you're the best!), and that somehow this has inspired you to write some of your own Piggy Tales to pass down to your children or family. Not all experiences are great, but God uses those events to His good. You never know when or where He will use those hidden memories and experiences to touch someone else's life.
If you would like to read more Piggy Tales from other ladies, hope on Over to Mommy's Piggy Tales. If you would like to join in and start recording your own Piggy Tales, contact Jana at Mommy's Piggy Tales to find out how (jannajoy25 (at) hotmail.com). she has a second session starting up in October.
