The BHS Girls of '99

Today I was lucky enough to have lunch with some of the amazing ladies from the BHS class of '99! Last year when we had our 10 year reunion, we decided that every few months, those girls that could should get together simply to stay better connected. 8 of us were able to make it this time. (There were only 68 in our whole class, so that is pretty good!) Here we are smiling for a group pic.

I share so many fun memories with these girls...Cheer camp, basketball, softball, powder puff football, making "the list", the teepee war with the boys (which we totally won with our disgusting use of certain products), long break, homecoming parties, banquets because we weren't able to have dances that were school sponsored, talent shows, Cedar Lake adventures,
Curly's lunches, Albie's jeep, Jessica, '99 bloomers, purple pants, bachelor auctions, parades, the Palace, moving the high school, and the list goes on and on and on.
We were very fortunate to attend a small, very conservative public school in the middle of the big old city! Well, back then it may have seemed more like a curse, but now I am so grateful! I don't know if we were genuinely just naive, or if our parents somehow put us in a bubble, but a lot of the things that went on at other high schools, simply didn't happen at ours. Or if it did we were so busy being naive, we didn't notice. :)
I love getting to hear about everyone's current lives. I was explaining to Stephen that it makes me so happy to hear how great everyone is doing. It is no longer some sort of silly high school girl competition, but a genuine appreciation of how everyone is doing. I was so blessed to get to grow up with these girls who have become such amazing women. I had a fabulous time today and can't wait to get together for the next one!
