I know…graduation pictures should be in May…not September but this is a special occasion. The high school I graduated from – Odessa High in Odessa, Texas is having a Centennial Celebration this weekend…and I am going!
John and I are leaving early in the morning and staying in Odessa Friday & Saturday. I haven't been home since John was born...I am sure things will look different. On Sunday we are driving to Brownwood to eat at Underwood's - the best BBQ in Texas! Julie & Ty are going to drive from Austin to meet us - can't wait to see my nephew...who is 6 foot already..& it will be great to see Jules. I will take plenty of pictures!
I think it is really cool that all three of us graduated from the same high school! I loved high school and had a bunch of fun! I learned early in my academic career that the more clubs/activities/organizations you belong too…the more you get out of class. I was in drama, band, FHA, Junior League, HOSA, and several committees. I would take summer school so that I could have more electives than actual classes! One of my proudest moments was when I was selected to be apart of Who’s Who Among High School Students my junior & senior year. It is hard to believe I graduated 20 years ago! My reunion will be in June next year…the plans have already started.
I do want to give a special “shout out” to my best friend Debbie-Dew. Debbie and I have been best buds for many years…over 30 to be exact. I am looking forward to seeing her this weekend! I was going to post some of our embarrassing “younger” photos but I decided to post this one…it really shows our true personalities!!
Going home…I can’t wait.
