Well, I registered my baby for high school.

While she was in orientation,I wandered the halls, thinking of how innocent I was when I enterd these halls & how wild I was by the time I left!

She will attend a high school that is so old,not only did I go there,her grandpa went there & he was 90.

our city is one who takes great pride in its antiquity.

Caitlin & I were laughing at all the speeches people were giving about how you will never forget that you were privileged enough to attend Murphy, how you will forever bleed blue & gold, how it is the best school in town.

Yeah, what hype, we said. 

 I took her T-shirt.

I still know the alma mater by heart.

I guess,once a Murphy Panther,always a Murphy Panther.

I am trying to add pictures of my sweet innocent child before she is corrupted by high school, but I keep getting a message that "we are sorry, we cannot upload your albums, please try again later." Anyone else having problems?

Yesterday while at a quiet dinner with DH, I was just reflecting (after signing up my last 2 babies (one freshman the other 8th grade) how these next few years are going to fly by so fasst......it's something about high school, they enter as smart assed lil chits and leave as smart assed lil chits but with an adult edge to them, it's sad and exhilarating at the same time....I think it's because then just spent the last 14 years glued to our sides and now our sides is the last place they want to be~ lol

You give that poor girl back her T-shirt, LOL!  A lot can be said for going to a school so rich with town history.  Later in life It will mean a lot to her that her entire family way back to her grandparents went to the same school.

Um I think you have to open the album first, and then after the album is open, choose the picture from the album.  Worth a try?

It's always interesting to enter Jr. High or High School where some of your relatives have been students. Thanx for reminding me!

    Tomorrow I register Becky at Dwight D. Eisenhower High. This is my alma mater, Bill's alma mater and Ed and Jon's, too. ....We're a team called Eisenhower, colors red and white. When we fight, we fight with power, go team show your might.... Once a Cardinal, always a Cardinal. Wow, I'm all choked up.
