Hi everyone!  It's raining here in Southern Cal...we haven't had much rain this year.  It sounds nice but... I always kinda dread the work day.  Since it's so uncommon the kiddos get rainy weird/hyper if that makes sense. :o/
Anyway the answer to the question is: SWIMMER!  I was a competitive swimmer and had the opportunity to travel all over the country growing up.  Some of my claims to fame were: beating Janet Evans a few times and breaking a record of Dara Torres.  Now I lap swim with a bunch of washed up older people.. totally kidding...people just like me.  LOL and I still love it very much.  I loved all your guesses though.
Here's our winner:
congrats Lori - good guess!
I hope you all had fun playing's fun getting to know each other better.  Some of your guesses were so creative. :o)


  1. Sorry I missed out, you look like a runner :) I love the rain, as long as I'm home, and I AM! Anyways, I just checked out your class site, great ideas!

  2. I soooo know what you mean about the kiddos being rainy/weird. Every time there is a change in the weather, and where I teach there are many changes, my little darlin's do the same thing -- Ugh!!

  3. Hey Vicki thats cool! I was a swimmer too, actually scored a swimming scholarship to come to the USA from Australia and swam at ASU :)

    On another note... I am a swimmer too!!!! I started swimming competitively at the age of 6 and continued all the way until I started college. I still love swimming and try to jump in the water every chance I get. Kudos to you for your dedication!
