Katie hasn't changed.

If you missed my first studies in awkwardness and humility, visit here and here.

Old photos are fun.  Good memories, good stories, and a certain level of ridiculousness.  As I sorted through pictures from my childhood, I discovered that I haven't really changed all that much as I have grown up.  When in my Senior English class, we were assigned to come up with one specific adjective to describe each of our classmates.  Want to know what word my classmates chose for me? Predictable.  Here are a few examples:

I still don't go anywhere without my sunglasses.  
And I do love a good purse.

 I'm ok with taking calculated risks as long as
I can see the place I should land.  
Actually, I really just like keeping my feet on the ground.

 I multi-task in strange places.

I frequently craft until the wee hours of the morning.  
Also still use elmer's glue.
And sometimes rock pink footie pajamas. 
Or not.

I love my faith.
Five year old Katie may not know the difference between the Immaculate Conception and the Incarnation, but she fully adhered to the dogma of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.  Also, she had a Jesus WaterBaby and thought it was ok for the Blessed Virgin to have rainbows on her veil.

I still enjoy a good jam, like the one below.

What do you see in pictures of your childhood?  What are some ways that you have not changed a bit?
