Lunch With the Girls

Five of us met a Fuddrucker's today to reconnect and also visit with Pam Foster and Helen Moss who couldn't be there this weekend. A really nice visit-too bad Susan and Helen had to go back to work.

Pam Foster Allsop-lives in the area-still a lot of fun!

Helen Moss-still lives here-hasn't changed a bit.

Susan Hampton Fisher-lives here; and Marcy Welz Glenn-lives in Arizona.

The group, plus one five-year-old (my grandson Sydney). He kept them pretty entertained.

You'll notice no pictures of me. That's the beauty of being the photographer! Terry Mitchell wants us to get together again sometime next summer, now that we've renewed our relationships. Susan and I are going to try to keep a database of addresses current so nobody has to work as hard as she did this time.

Friday night was a gathering at McKenzie River Pizza. There were 11 classmates there.

Saturday at the Belgrade Senior Center. Checking out the memories.

Brian to Jerry: "It's OK, most of us need glasses these days."

Ted to his new wife: "Yes, honey, that was me when I still had hair."

Here We Are!

Here's a shot of the bunch that made it to the barbecue tonight with the exception of Suzie Curtis Williams-she had left just before we took this picture.

We had a couple of "crashers," underclassmen who were really good friends of ours. It was great to see them.

Oh, the Memories-They're in Our Classrooms!

This year two of my grandkids, Sydney and Gracie, (cousins) started kindergarten. It is so cool because Gracie is in Mrs. Heck's room, and Sydney is in my first grade room. The memories keep flooding over me. We met the principal in our old lunchroom. (How did that room get so small?) Belgrade has all-day, every other day kindergarten this year. I think the big deal was because of day care issues. How times have changed! They're actually going to do every day kindergarten for a few-since she was an extreme preemie, Gracie might be eligible. She's actually thriving in her present schedule, so she might not switch over-depends on their evaluation.

Okay-big question-who the heck was the other first grade teacher? I remember: 2nd-Mrs. Miller, 3rd-Mrs. Wright, 4th-Mrs. Hoagland, and 5th-Mrs. Tavegie(sp). For the life of me, I can't remember my first grade teacher. I transferred from Livingston not too long before Christmas, so my memories are just a bit fuzzy.


See you Friday-be there or be square!
