Yes- it has been 10 years since I graduated from high school. I graduated through a home school program but I went to Skyline from the time I was 4 years old until I was almost 17. That was 12 years of my life I spent with (mostly) the same classmates. They honored me by inviting me to attend the reunion. I had such good time catching up with everyone- seeing faces I have not seen since I left the mountain. Some of those faces look much the same- some looked so different I did have to ask who they were. Keep in mind- our class had a max. of 55-60 in it- and most of us were together from Headstart(now called Pre-k) until graduation- so these were a close bunch of kids. I do miss that about the mountain. I loved that school. The close knit lives of everyone- not the same thing my kids will have in the changes of elementary/middle school/high school here were we live. We had ONE campus for K-12. You just advanced to the next building... one for elementary (K-6) and one for high school (7-12).
Here we are 10 years later.... a couple of them are actually teachers at Skyline.... that just blows my mind.... teachers were OLD (or so I thought) and here someone MY age is now old enough to teach MY kids..... just weirds me out to say the least.
Lori and Emily- these two were my very good friends. They haven't changed much at all!
Another group shot...
This is just for Taylor and Michelle..... you KNEW I would be blogging about this :)-
This is Labristia- she was my sidekick throughout our entire elemantary years. We lived together it seemed. We have many (funny, embarrasing, I will never tell) stories that I hope we both forget!!!
And JD was a sweety and made sure that he made it to my reunion because I did not want to show up by myself! He had to be at the studio that morning and record 2 Christmas songs (start to finish) for an upcoming gospel Christmas CD that Joppa Pond Studios has in the works. He is picky and I know how long the NH project kept him in that studio- therefore I made sure he knew that I would likely cause great harm to him if he ditched me for recording.......
He went (even though Buena Vista is his LEAST fave restaraunt) and he smiled.... and I think he looked pretty cute ;)
We aren't having church tonight due to a death so we are all using tonight as a lazy, lay around, make-a-messs-so-mom-can-fix-it-back-tomorrow moment, so this is going to count as my normal Monday morning post because I am not seeing a spare minute for blog time amongst Hurricane Cantrell clean-up!!!!
