Class Reunion

My favorite teacher, Mrs. Rowland!

Old friends!

Class of 1968 & 69 - White Pass High School, Randle, WA

Class of 1968 (I'm 4th from the right, front row)

When you graduate with a total of 48 classmates, you have to expect that your class reunions might be a little iffy. I have never gone to my class reunion before. I saw no reason to go back - ever! Then I reconnected with a friend on and suddenly I was in the loop! I got the golden invite! So, I put on my big girl panties and Bill and I went yesterday. It was a year late. And combined with the even smaller class of '69! But, it was a reunion and I actually had a good time. Comes from being comfortable in my own skin and knowing I am a totally different person than I was in high school. I was totally shy and couldn't even imagine talking to a boy! Well, who greeted me right off the bat? Some of those boys! Does an old lady good! Name tags were a very good thing, as I wasn't the only one whose memory was a tad shaky! Some live in the area still and of course knew each other and I guess there were a few reunions in the past, but evidently I was hard to reach - who knew?! So we had some burgers, took some pictures and agreed it had been too long! Maybe in another 5 or 10 years? We'll just have to wait and see!

Birthday Girls

There is nothing quite like a four year old girlie girl! Hannah just turned four as did a friend of hers. Saturday, June 6 was Hannah's party and the next day Talia celebrated hers! Talia's theme was Cinderella or princess, so I had the big idea of making a princess dress for Hannah.Cinchy, huh? Not so much! If anything could go wrong, it did, but I got it done in time for the party! I ended up having to "hot rod" it as Bill would say so it would fit! It was huge on her! Aren't they all just so cute! Some pics are at Hannah's house and some at Talia's home. Enjoy! Hannah was fascinated with Talia's baby brother!

Fun in Grandpa's Garage!

Who needs expensive toys for kids? Grandpa's garage is a veritable gold mine of fun things! Take the air compressor for instance! When bicycle tires were pumped up, the wheels began to spin in little one's minds! Are we having fun or what?!
