I went with my son to the middle school orientation today that just happens to be in my old high school stomping grounds. What memories were flowing through my mind while I was walking the halls? My kids probably thought I was crazy. I kept saying to them, “I used to sit right there on that bench during lunch.” and “I used to check out of school all the time in that office. Look, there are the same secretaries!” 18 years ago I graduated from those halls and the school began to be used as a middle school that next year when the new high school was complete. Isn’t it neat that my son will be enjoying the last year that the school will be used at all? They are building a new middle school now that will be complete Fall 2008. The even neater thing is that my fourth grade teacher is working at the middle school and she recognized me without me giving her my name. Okay, that is a LONG time ago! She was one of my favorite teachers in elementary and I was so excited to see her again. Memories are fun, but they also make you a little sad, too. Here is to school starting on Thursday. A time of making memories that you will never forget!
