Last time you were at your
 
grade school ?

I haven't been inside since I went there but a few years ago, I walked my dog around the building and looked in the windows (school was out :rotfl:), man a flood of memories come back that I haven't thought of since I went there, it was nice

My first grade school burned to the ground many years ago, but I've driven around my old hometown to revisit the past, and to show my kids where I grew up.

I also worked at my old high school for 5 years, now that was funny. I couldn't call the teachers by their first names, no matter how many times they told me to! I was pretty young (22-27) and one time the vice principal asked me for a hall pass.

My kids went to the same school I did so YES..it was quite weird to go there for various occassions, especially when I saw some of the same teachers still there that I had:rolleyes1

My parents still live a block away from my school where I went from K-9. I haven't been in it in ages but pass by it regularly.

When I attended them. We moved around a lot,so it was more then just 1. My first school for kindergrten actually closed last year was made into a community center. I went to my old high school last June during a reunion with a couple friends and we were able to walk around: the gym still smelled the same lol.

We drove past mine about our years ago when my granddaddy passed away and we were over that way. I haven't been in the school in many, may years.

I was in the very first 1st grade class in that school and we planted a tree out front. That tree has really grown over the years and it was really neat to see as we drove by. :goodvibes

Remember what should be remembered, and forget what should be forgotten.Alter what is changeable, and accept what is unchangeable.

last month. i substitute teach there sometimes. the school is much bigger now-it has 5 buildings, instead of just the 2 that were there when i was in school. it brings back memories of both when i was there, and when DD15 went to school there.

Oh wow! That's horrible that something like that happened but what a sweet way for the students to remember them by.

You know how everyone walked miles to school up hill both ways?

Well, a few years ago we took the kids back to my home town and drove by my old grade school and then to my home. I did walk to and from school even when I was in 1st grade. My family was amazed that my parents let me walk back and forth everyday at such a young age. My dh actually went back to see how far it was and it was 1.5 miles and I had to walk along a busy road without a sidewalk! I think the kids had a new level of respect for me after that and couldn't believe it was even allowed. Little did they know that some kids walked even farther than I did.

My elementary school is closed. Wish I could check it out again. :thumbsup2 My Middle school is also closed. My High School closed then re-opened as a middle school years later. May check that out if I can.

My kids went to the same schools my husband did! :goodvibes
