It's Beginning to Look alot Like....

FALL!!!

After a week of rain an absolutely zero sunshine, the sun came out Saturday morning just in time for our first soccer game, {which we won 3-2 by the way} and the rest of the weekend was perfect - comfortable to wear jeans and a t-shirt. Not too hot, not too cold. Windows open. Perfection.

So fall soccer started, NFL started, UK had their first home game, it feels like fall is definitely here. And I think I'm more ready for it than I ever have been. It has been a hot summer. I realized there are a few summer things that I never blogged about that I want to write about before summer is too far gone.

The first is I had my 10 year high school reunion this summer. It was back in July, towards the end of a month of crazy traveling. We stopped in Columbus on our way home from a wedding in Pennsylvania. My best friend from high school, Amy, and her husband and Derek and I all got together for dinner beforehand. Neither of us has done a great job keeping in touch with people from high school besides each other, so we thought it would be fun to get to spend some quality time together before reuniting with folks we hadn't seen in years.

The reunion itself was a lot of fun. I was kind of nervous. Not really sure why, I guess you just never know if you'll end up going and it will be really awkward talking to people you haven't seen in such a long time. But for the most part it seemed like people were genuinely happy to see each other. Of course it was great seeing the people who were my closest friends, but I also loved talking with people that I wasn't really that good of friends with. It was kind of like the experience of going to the same high school gave us a bond, that 10 years later, it was just good to see each other, regardless of how close we were back in the day. It was really good to see everyone, especially since I no longer live in Columbus, and don't ever really run into people from high school.

I'll leave you with a few fun pictures from high school...enjoy!

I love seeing the pictures of you from high school! How fun. Derek had his ten year highschool reunion (last year or this year? I can't remember), but we didn't go. Maybe for the 20th. :-)

Yes, yes, yes! It's feeling like fall here too!!! What fun your reunion sounds like. We've talked about getting one together (I graduated from homeschooling, but there was a large group of us who were really close/took classes together, etc.) but so far, not yet. Need to get on the ball...it would be so great to see them again! Aaaannnd, thanks for your sweet card! Made my day yesterday :-) Happy Tuesday to ya!
