This daughter of mine is one of those kids who always went strong from sun-up to sun-down. I had to work extra hard to keep her busy and occupied and out of trouble. Kids who have a high level of intelligence can be a challenge and this kiddo was often too smart for her own britches.

flag at a football game with her dance team.
Such a proud moment.
|Heather at a social function with one of her|
Texas A&M Professors invited to attend. Actually, this is
her "Ring Dunk." I don't even want to explain...
I'll save it for later.
At that time, she decided to "...never swim in the lake again."
About two hours later, she was swimming in the lake and at one with the Amoebas. I guess she figured the old adage to be true...if you can't beat them, might as well join them.

lake in the background; the lake full of Amoebas.
|An exciting summer of shadowing a prestigious brain surgeon|
in Houston's renowned Medical Center.
A beautiful opportunity where she discovered that
she absolutely LOVED being in a surgical room.
Those amoebas have NOTHING on that gal!
|Heather, in Junior High, ready for school.|
Always a great student.
Heather is one determined gal. Probably much more determined than some people realize, but I've witnessed a life-time of that dogged mindset. I know she doesn't like to sit still for too long. Movement in knowledge has been her delight. She loves learning, especially if it involves science.
|Heather catching fish. She was the one in the family|
who always caught the "weird" things.
This shot has a normal fish!
|Who would've thought that her parents|
would be raising chickens after she grew up?
