I was born at : at the McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, UT. I was ___ lbs. __ oz. and ___ in. long. Three minutes later, my twin sister Madison was born.
I first became a big sister when my little sister Hannah was born on July 6, 1997.
The summer after kindergarten, our family moved from the teeny town of Monument Valley, Utah to the barely-bigger town of Blanding, Utah.
My dad baptized and confirmed me a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Blanding, UT on my 8th birthday.
I got my driver's license!
I turned eighteen and can now drive a car after midnight, buy spray paint and dry ice, and sign my own legal documents (also, as a friend pointed out, I can now order things off TV). Hmmm... awesome.
Before Madison and I were born, my family lived in Kearney, New Jersey because my dad was going to graduate school at New York University. We lived there for another year after I was born until my dad finished his master's program. Then we moved to Monument Valley, Utah, where we lived for five years.
I started my freshman year of high school at San Juan High School in Blanding, UT.
I competed at the Utah Cross Country State Championships, along with the rest of my cross country team. We won first place in the 2A division, and became state champions!
After thinking about it a lot, I decided I wanted to come to BYU. I put in my application, and then all I had to do was wait.
I left my home in Blanding, UT and moved to Provo, UT to start school at Brigham Young University.
My parents spilled the beans and told me that Santa Claus wasn't real. I got over it.
My youngest sister Joy was born on a cold day in February 2003 in Monticello, UT. I can still remember getting checked out of school and visiting my mom and new little sister in the hospital.
After waiting through the long cold winter, I finally received word from BYU about my application, and... I was accepted!
I graduated from the Seminary Program of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints after four years of attendance and participation.
After twelve years in the public education system, I graduated from San Juan High School (Blanding, UT) on May 22, 2012.
