1. I am purebred Dutch even though I am 3rd generation to live in the U.S. My maiden name is De Vries and my married name is Van Wyk. And my son will be the 4th generation "purebred", rather unusual.

2. I skipped kindergarten and went straight into first grade, so I was always the youngest in my class by almost a year.

3. My husband and I lived in Germany for a year.

4. I hate answering or talking on the phone.

5. My husband does all the grocery shopping and cooking for our family.

6. I put myself through college and grad school by cleaning homes and waitressing. It was hard.

7. As I was growing up, during the school year we lived in Michigan, and during the summers we lived in Washington, which I loved. My Dad was a school teacher. We always drove between the two states and camped. With three kids, how did my Mom ever manage that?

Hey Pal :) How are things? I just wanted to tell you to watch the mail this week, I shipped your second package on Thurday. Have a great day!

Interesting facts - I do think that it is very unusual to be 100% anything these days. My mom is 100% Portuguese, but I am a mixture of three things (that, Scotch-Irish and Sicilian.)

Same here on #4, #5 and #6 (on #6, just waitressing - I would have failed miserably at house cleaning LOL.)
