5 Things You Didn't Know About These SLPs & A Give Away!

I was just sitting here scrolling through Facebook and ran across Jessica at The Speech Space's linky.  I enjoyed reading everyone's blog so much that I was inspired to join in the fun.  My sweet colleague and longtime friend and I share this blog so I thought I'd do a little twist on the linky and share 5 things you didn't know about us.  Here goes:

1.  Angela and I both attended Auburn University where we received our B.S. Degree in Education (Speech Pathology) and graduated in 1994.  Even though we graduated together, I am nine years older than Angela.  After completing 3 years of college, I decided I wanted to take a short break.  My short break turned into a long one, but I'm so thankful for God's timing. I can't imagine my life being any other way!

Throwing it way back to when we were right out of college! War Eagle!
This was from twin day.  Angela doesn't wear glasses but she put on a pair of mine for the pic.

2. Immediately after graduation, Angela and I were hired as school SLPs at a small school system in Franklin, Georgia; and we have worked together for the past 22 years.  There are only three SLPs in our system and we all share an office which brings me to my 3rd fact.

 3. We HATE to be cold! We keep our office nice and toasty!

4. We don't like ice cream, but we love chocolate :)

5. We both think families come first! Angela has two fantastic teenagers.  Trey just turned 17 and is the kicker for our region champion high school football team.  Sara Kate is 15 and is a varsity cheerleader and also competes on the award-winning Stingrays cheer team. Her husband, Ken, is a great guy who coaches and teaches P.E in our system.  I have three wonderful children.  My oldest daughter, Brittany, is a stay-at-home mom to my precious grandson, Tillman.  She's married to my son-in-law, Chase, who is a pharmacist. My son, Luke, is a site coordinator for Pine Cove Christian Camp and is currently attending seminary.  My youngest daughter, Meg, attends the University of West Georgia where she is a member of the tennis team. My husband, Rudd, (who is a great guy as well) works in Atlanta for Coca-Cola.
