Back in the Day...

Ah for a kindler gentler time--60's Day in my freshman English class back in the mid 90's before No Child Left Behind, before 9/11, before all these awesome students got a taste of the real world. We were hunkered down in our windowless classroom, rolling love beads out of bread dough and glue, brewing vats of herb tea, extracting Beatles lyrics to study as poetry, fashioning armbands and "marching" on the principal's office to stage a sit-in, tie-dyeing T-shirts out in a snowbank, inviting the counselor Mr. Belnap to bring his guitar and lead us in war protest songs. Peace. Love.

Ben and I got quite a kick out of the picture. Marcus and Brent look like little boys and Brookes hair is awesome!!

Hi Mandi! You're skulking! I think that's Tyler Argyle's partial face in the front.

Good times...good times. Didn't you do potato pancakes too? or was that something else?

David and Shelly said...

I have those earrings, by-the-way, and that vintage green dress from Philly. And a few other treasured necklaces.

Jill said...

I agree with Lizzie. Sarah does still look like that.

Yes, we made latkes for Passover. Anybody remember when we made crepes?
