I had one more question from a reader who wants to know how it came to be that I was born in Panama. The simple answer: my mom was there! haha.. The real answer: it was a bottom line decision. When my Dad finished college he was married and had a new baby, so he needed to find the best income he could.. teaching jobs in Panama paid better than here in the U.S., so off they went. That's how it happened! My family stayed there for 9 years, and all three girls were born there. I am the youngest, so I don't remember Panama at all. I was two when they decided to move back to Minnesota.
Some day I would like to go there and see where I'm from! The above picture is a house my family (thought perhaps not I) used to live in. The area has now become a resort, so I could go back and stay in my family's same old house! Awesome!
