Wordful Wednesday circa 1980

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

It's a small world after all! My husband is in school finishing up his undergrad. He attends classes at night and called one evening, several months ago, to say he was working on a group project with a girl with whom I had attended elementary school. I had fun reminiscing over the past friendship and remembering what life was like in my early elementary years. His semester ended and I didn't think about it much anymore.

Fast forward to last week and I get an email from his blackberry with a photo of myself at a birthday party in the second grade! He is now in a different class with the same girl (actually a woman now, but I've never really liked that word, woman, especially referring to someone the same age as me). Anyway, she dug up this photo from way back when, and here I am at her 7th birthday party, LOL!

Can you pick me out of the crowd?

How sweet! Let's see, 1980 I was 9 and in the 4th grade. Seriously? Has it really been that long?

It all looks so familiar to me. The clothes, the hair, etc. Great shot!

Hmm... I don't even know what you look like now, so I'm not even going to try to guess which one is you! :) But yes, it's definitely a small world!

I like the sweater too :) I realized a few weeks ago that I work with a girl you went to HS with...remind me to tell you about it later. She asked me if I was, "Missy's sister"!
