This past Christmas we surprised my Mom with a collection of all the old
SUPER 8 HOME MOVIES converted to DVD!
I edited together some highlights from the Laura Lee footage, and thought I'd share them in case anyone would find them amusing. I gained 3 insights from watching these...
1. My personality is kinda....the same. I'm still in my own world, clumsy, either super happy or super grumpy, and highly motivated by cookies.
2. My parents really ARE the most supportive loving people ever. They gave my brother and I such a amazing childhood, and I'm so thankful for that.
3. I was born a nerd. In the 3rd video here, I'm not only wearing glasses and sporting a lazy eye, but when my Dad asks what I got for Christmas I exclaim, "STAR WARS!" And I dance like Elaine from Seinfeld. Wow.
Part 1: Newborn- First Steps (1979-80)
Part 2: Toddler (1980-81)
Part 3: Toddler - Preschool (1981-83)
And speaking of my Virginia roots...
I just got a shout out on the Prince William County Schools website! Living in a city where no one really knows me at all from back in Virginia, it's kinda nice to see myself referred to as an "Osbourn Park High School Alum." Warm fuzzies!
