Goodness! That's quite the list of schools. Makes me realize just how lucky I was to attend kindergarten through my senior year at the same school!

Wow - can you say "Sprechen sie deutsch?" Seems like you've had a very interesting childhood. I attended three different schools - one public and two private.- oh and two different universities.

Blogger Denise Patrick said...
LOL, Amelia you're dating yourself. Do you know how long ago one-room schoolhouses went out? *ggg*

Christine - as a matter of fact, German was my undergraduate minor and I speak it well enough to get around when I go back to visit.

Blogger Michelle Pillow said...
That was a lot of schools! Which was your favorite area to live in?

Anonymous HighlandAmy said...
Wow! I've gone to quit a few schools too, although I'm not quite up to 13 yet... I think I'm at 10... maybe after grad school I can do a TT on schools I've gone to ;)

Blogger Denise Patrick said...
Michelle - I think #10 (UMMC) because I was old enough to be on my own and living in Munich, Germany. The adventures my roommate and friends and I got up to were amazing. Today I'd be scared to death to allow my own daughter to do some of the stuff we did!

Blogger UKZoe said...
If you count University I can make 7 schools! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Blogger Chelle said...
You have done some moving around! Thanks for visiting my blog!

I'm not sure I've attended thirteen schools! I might have come close, though.

Blogger Ciar Cullen said...
Wow! Go Terrapins! Okay, not the Munich campus LOL

Blogger Denise Patrick said...
Actually, Ciar, we were the Terrapins in Munich, too. I was a cheerleader and have the pictures to prove it!

Blogger Melissa said...
I need to do that! Hmmm, not sure I have had 13 thought....

Blogger Norma said...
I'll have to try that some day. I attended kindergarten in Alameda.

Blogger Raggedy said...

Wow...did you get degrees from these?

Wow! Lots of schools you have attended so yes I immediately thought you father must have been in the military.

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Happy St. Pat's!
