ten years

Today, up in Washington, my high school classmates are celebrating our ten year reunion. No, we are not there. I don't really know why you would plan a reunion for the very end of August when people who are in school or have kids in school have already started the new school year...but whatever.

I don't think a night of small talk in a hotel reception hall is really Micah's style anyway.

And although there are a few people I would love to see tonight, for the most part, I have kept in touch with the people I want to keep in touch with from high school. And that is that.

However, I LOVED high school. It was a fun, sweet time of laughter, obnoxious antics, great friendships, and only two suspensions :) We did everything we could to make our small town life adventurous!

Earlier this year, I stumbled across these pictures on facebook. These are of the Class of 2011 during last year's football season. The special thing about these students is that I was their teacher. Four years ago, right when I moved back to Washington from Texas, I spent a year substitute teaching at my own high school. During the second semester of that year, I took a long-term sub position, teaching these crazy kids HEALTH of all things {aka I taught sex ed to a bunch of 15 year olds!} Now they just graduated and are headed off to college...

But even after TEN years, not too much has changed in good ol' Lake Stevens. Here we are a decade ago...

And, yes, I'm wearing Micah's jersey...

Have fun tonight, Class of 2001. Maybe we'll see you in ten more years.
