I Still Got It.....A Little

On Monday I went to the Mormon Trail Center to interpret for a group coming in from the Deaf school in Iowa. There were about 35 kids from 5th to 8th grade. I was pretty nervous because it has been about 4 years since I've done any interpreting. But I must say, I was okay. Adequate at least. I was nothing like I was when I was in my prime, but I held my own and they still got something out of it. There was another girl there interpreting also. She is in an interpeting program right now and is going to graduate in May. I could still voice better than her (voicing is a deaf person signing and the interpreter says out loud what they are signing), actually she couldn't do any of the voicing. So I wasn't horrible and it was very fun to sign again and get to hang out with some deaf folks. Now I remember why I love signing so much.

I know only one word in sign language, actually now that I think about it, maybe it's two words.
