What story does your family always tell about you? When I was 7 years old my family brought my oldest sister out to BYU for her first year of college. On the last day we were out here we went to University Mall where I tripped and split my knee open on the uneven flagstone. We rushed to the hospital where I had to get 5 stitches in my right knee. Later that day we were at Helaman Halls saying goodbye to my oldest sister, and I tripped again and re-split my knee open in the exact same spot. My entire family was off to the hospital again for stitches for the second time in one day. I'd like to believe I'm not so clumsy anymore, but I'm not positive!
