While Robert and Maxwell were freezing in a tent, I was in Little Rock celebrating my 20th High School reunion! I stayed at my friend Laura’s house which was great because the pre and post parties ended up there both nights! It was fun to see so many familiar faces…
20 years seems like a long time but I’d say most people hadn’t changed much. We’ve all aged like a fine wine! 🙂
On Saturday they were giving a tour of my old high school – which has changed a LOT since we graduated. Lucky for us, no one else showed up for the tour so Laura, Andee, and I got a personal tour from Betsy!
While my friends might have aged like a fine wine, the halls of my old school are showing their age! Eek! The school has expanded a ton and the newer buildings are awesome and state of the art but the original building where I spent my 18 years is looking pretty old and tired. Sad.
It was a beautiful fall day and I loved being back in Little Rock driving around my old stomping grounds and getting to see some of my friend’s parents.
Before the official reunion party that night, I went for cocktails at the home of one my friend’s parents. They live in my old neighborhood and it was honestly really hard to be back that close to my old house. I took the long way around the circle and didn’t drive by my house – I just couldn’t do it. I like to imagine it’s still standing exactly as we left it with all of our furniture and things inside. 🙁 I’m sure the Connors thought I was crazy when I kept crying all night but I just couldn’t help it – too many memories were flooding in. All good times that I’m very grateful for!
The reunion party was fun and we had a pretty decent showing out of a class of only 89! It was nice to catch up with everyone and talk about the “glory days!”
Robert and GJ were holding down the fort back at home. Before he took Maxwell camping, Robert got all the kids up and out to breakfast Saturday morning! Super Dad!
GJ then attempted a campout at the apartment Saturday night for Spencer and Samantha. Super GJ!
The setup was great, Spencer was all about it, but little Miss just couldn’t ever settle down enough to go to sleep over there! They ended up back at the house around 9pm where everyone got a good night sleep.
I think it was an entertaining weekend for all parties. I’m really glad I ended up going to my reunion – always fun to catch up and remember old times!
PA all the Way! Go Hey Go Hey Go!
