It's time for Mama Kat's Writers Workshop:)
1.) Your 15 minutes of fame.
Not sure you can handle my fame because it's HOT... and I mean really HOT!!! Last summer, we hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon with my 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter. This had been a dream of my husbands and we talked about it when we dated. I went along with it "Yes, dear that sounds like fun!" never really believing that we would do it. But crazy as it sounds... we did do it. It was challenging, exhilirating, daunting, fun, scary, rewarding and best of all we made it out to tell of our adventure. So my 15 minutes of fame you ask? I wrote a story about it and was featured in our local family magazine, Chesapeake Family Magazine. The kids were even on the front cover and loved when one of their teachers asked them for an autograph. I am so, so, so proud of them. Now when they start in on the "I can't do... blah.. blah.. blahh....!" , I reply "Oh yes you can. You can do anything... you hiked the Grand Canyon!"
