While we were in Fresno over Easter weekend, I took Brad on a "nostalgia tour" of the places where I grew up. I had SO many memories flooding back!
Looking worn and unkempt, here is the house I grew up in for 21 years. We had no gate, and they have built a second floor over the three car garage, which was our "summer kitchen".
My kindergarten playground looks about the same at Bullard Elementary school.
My Junior High looks about the same, except it is now a Middle School and has a "Media and Computer center".
My high school looks twice as big as it did when I graduated in 1970!
We also visited the Catholic school where I taught fourth grade, eighth grade, and was vice-principal. It had an Easter egg hunt going on. I peeked into my old classroom window. Wow...some things never change!
Finally, we visited the condo I lived in during my early 30s until I moved to the Bay Area in 1987. I took a peek through the gate into the courtyard.
I had so much fun re-visiting my old stomping grounds, and sharing new stories with Brad!
