We were privileged to have one of my best friends from High School, Carrie, stop by and visit us for a couple of days. It was fun to just sit back and get to know each other- the 12 years later version.

The kids adored her!

I have a lot of regrets from High School. I didn't like who I was then. I'm one of those people who really blossomed in college. I found the real me in college where in High School I was lost. Ive always looked back with regret at who I presented myself to be and how I may have treated people. Carrie had a great point though, that was what High School was for, to learn.

I'm so glad I learned from it!

Doesn't just about everyone regret who they were in high school? I guess if I had to do it again, I would do things differently, but I would NEVER want to do it again!

Your boys are so photogenic!

And thanks for the reminder that life is here for us to learn from. My grandma said to me once, "Oh honey, I'm 75 and still haven't learned it all."

Grandmas are wise people. You may not have remembered your high school as really wonderful, neither did I, I had pimples galore! No confidence and I was 'chunky'. So, it's a good reminder of why we keep growing and struggling and why people go back to their high school reunions!
