Rainy Sunday

It rained all weekend in A-town, so yesterday I decided to go through some of the bins my mom made me take home now that we have plenty of storage. They were full of everything from elementary school to college mementos. Wow. I found old diaries (HILARIOUS to read), the shoe boxes I kept with boyfriend stuff (notes, cards, movie stubs, etc.), scrapbooks, yearbooks, and LOTS and LOTS of pictures. I swear, I saved every single school picture anyone ever gave me. I even had some from elementary school. I love reading the notes on the back of them. Matt got me/us a photo printer/scanner for Christmas, and I LOVE IT. I hadn't used it until yesterday, but it is sooooooo easy and pretty fast too. I could scan up to five 3x5" pictures at once, which was awesome.

Clockwise L-R: 2nd grade, 1st grade, Kindergarten, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 7th grade spring pic

Daddy and me near Highlands, NC circa summer 1982

me, Gram & Great Gram (all have Elizabeth as part of our names... as well as my aunt and cousin)

Azalea Algebrats 4th Grade Gifted Math Team (yes, I was/am a dork... not the last time I competed in an academic competition... haha)

Opening of the Bayside Bridge in 1993 (Dad was the superintendent)

not sure why this is so small... middle school cheerleading nationals in Atlanta

Jamaica (wish I still had that bod... sigh) - mom, cousins and brother

Varsity Cheer - 10th grade

Homecoming Court 1999 (I wasn't on court but I was our HS pageant queen)

Baccalaureate with 3 of my bests

It was so funny to go through all that... and I have plenty left to explore. Anyone else enjoy that or was high school a time you wouldn't mind forgetting? Don't get me wrong, there are certainly points I would like to forget, but I look back at the young loves, stupid fights, quest to be Valedictorian (unsuccessful) and laugh now at how trivial some of it seems.

I love old pics! I actually think I had some of those old school pics. I loved high school!! There were definitely stupid moments, but overall, I loved it!
