My Do-Over Moment

If life had a "do-over" button I would push it and go back to Junior High.  I know crazy, right? Who wants to go back to Junior High?!  I had an over all good experience in Jr. high... I mean I must have liked it since I later became a middle school teacher.  But there is one thing I would change.  I would have joined the swim team.

Here I am in Junior High.... Aren't I so cute??  

I was not involved in any sports or extra curricular activities during Junior High.  I love to swim and I am good at it.  I am not overly athletic but I can swim like a fish!  During the school year we had swimming as part of our gym class and I aced all the strokes.  The gym teacher would use me as an example.  Too bad they never encouraged me to join the team.  I think I would have had a lot of fun.

As a teacher of Junior Highers, I see the benefits of being on a team, especially during those tough early teen years.  It boost confidence, gives you goals to work on, and builds good relationships.  Who knows, I may have gotten a scholarship to college too! : ) Ok- that is taking it a bit far, but with the Summer Olympics coming up I get all dreamy and think of what might have been...

A word on Do-Overs from Frigidaire:   The Frigidaire Gallery™Dishwasher gets dishes fully cleaned the first time, so there are no dish do-overs. Nearly half of adults admit to re-washing and/or re-drying dishes after the dishwasher cycle has been completed. To prevent dishwasher do-overs, Frigidaire® is stepping in with its new Gallery® Dishwasher featuring the OrbitCleanTM Wash Arm, ensuring dishes are cleaned right the first time.

 So, tell me friends, What would you do over?
