My Class Reunion

Sat. evening was my 35th. high school class reunion. Wow, where have the years gone.

Just seems like yesterday we were teenagers. Now we have grey hair, and many of us grandparents.

 You know I am a country girl from WV, I went to the same school (which no longer exits) for 12 years.

There were 28 kids in my graduating class. We had a wonderful meal with lots of laughs and reminising.

And my son and Kelly May Brown provided the music. What an awesome night to remember.

I will share a few photo's. Only about half of the students attended along with a few teachers.

the Mathias High School class of 1976.

I am in the front row, 2nd. from the right.

My husband Ronnie and me.

My son Luke, and Kelly May Brown,
they did an awesome job. Kelly has the most wonderful voice and Luke is one awesome guitarist.
I was very proud!

I'll see "kids" I graduated with and think "wow, they look old with gray hair..." etc...then I'll get home and do I! (Love your creations at the top of your blog!) Have a good week ~*~Lisa

    How wonderful to have your son playing as well.

    Thanks for sharing

  11. Lecia,
    I agree with the others...that you look the youngest out of everyone from your class. Love your hair!!
    Sounds and looks like you had a lot of fun!

  12. Oh, class reunions. I didn't go to any of mine. You certainly look the youngest and prettiest there :o) I'm glad y'all had a good time and wonderful entertainment.

  13. Hi, Lecia, how exciting! A 35th class reunion, where do the years go? You did look very pretty, you and hubby make a handsome couple! I'm glad you had the opportunity to attend. I've missed so many of mine, but I only went to school with my 12th grade class 1 year! My parents moved at the end of my junior year in Frederick, MD. I haven't been able to travel to Maryland, that is the class I consider my graduating class. Ah, memories...

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
