Another Bit Of Childhood Leaves

When children grow up they grow out of things - pacifiers, high chairs, car seats. etc.  For some items I had no problem when it was time to donate them, especially the Binky.  Katie was able to use her Binky as currency at the grocery store and "buy" a stuffed animal for the rate of one used pacifier.  (It's so nice when your neighborhood grocery loves to help you.  Of course, real currency paid for the stuffed animal ;-> ).  Something else that our girls have grown out of has left our house today, or better yet our yard, and although they haven't used the swing set in years, it's still bittersweet that it's gone.

Rob built the swing set when Katie was 2 yrs. old.   She's now 16.  It isn't that Katie wanted to let the swing set go, just like she wasn't too hip to the idea of trading her Binky, but it was time.  A part of our daughters youth was standing in the yard - practically glaring at us - reminding us that our little girls weren't so "little" any more and it was time to move along.

My cousin has a little girl who we hear is very excited to have a new swing set in her backyard.  We were told we can come over and visit the swing set any time we want.  Sounds good to me.

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
