10 Years Ago....

Lincoln High School
So its been 10 years this month that I graduated from High School. I've been thinking about this the last few days. I can't believe that its been 10 years and my reunion is next month. I will be unable to go due to it being back home in Washington. I am very proud that I went to Lincoln. I was the last of 5 kids to graduate from there. I guess I kinda had it a little easy the teachers knew my older siblings and yes they loved my sisters. I remember a few times in class I got called Shawna or Susan then I had to remind the teacher how long ago my sisters had graduated. One graduated in 87 and the other in 89. Also my grandpa graduated from Lincoln back in 1924, I never knew my grandpa because he past away when i was 7 months old. The one thing I loved about Lincoln is they had pictures of past graduates on the walls. So every day as I walked into one of my classes I would see my grandpa's picture. There was so much history behind Lincoln. My favorite class was newspaper, I had so much fun in that class. My friend and I did an article of the history of Lincoln. As we read old newspapers we found out that Elvis had performed in the bowl. (For those of you don't know the bowl is the football field and yes it does look like a bowl). So I am very great full for all the experiences I had while at Lincoln. I am bummed that I won't be able to make it to my reunion but I have all the best memories in the world. And yes I am one proud Lincoln Abe!

I love the new brown flowered background! My 10 year reunion was last year. It's strange how time seems to go by so fast, and yet feel like so long! Anyways, what a bummer you can't go back for your reunion. Most of the people I wanted to see at my class reunion weren't there anyways.
