Class of 2010

Spencer's youngest aunts will be turning 14 this summer. But before they do that they graduated from 8th grade, spending 9 years in Catholic school and getting ready for 4 more at a Catholic high school. Neither schools are just a few miles from home and my parents have sacrificed to get them a quality education, which we all hope will be put to good use as adults and make the family proud.

Which made me think...because I too graduated from the same school way, way back in 8th grade. The school has changed and so have the kids. We had computer class on a Commodore 64 or some such thing and cell phones and ipods were definitely things of the "future" and not on our young minds. We were looking forward to high school and the unknown.

There were only 13 of us in that class and I remember getting quite a lot of awards, as well as being the class president. At the time it was a small school and so something like class president wasn't really a big deal. Not the way schools do it now and how many times it is based on popularity. I think I was lucky...cause I was neither cool or popular. Some things never change...

My sister's on the other hand are the epitome of beauty and coolness and if you don't believe me, take a look for yourselves:

Congratulations to B and I and much success as you take the next step in your schooling!

  1. Congrats to your sisters! I went to small Catholic grade school as well. There were only 24 of us when we graduated from 8th grade. We then made the jump to public high school, where we had a class of over 300. But some of my closest friends are still from my grade school days!


Something to say? I love reading your thoughts!
