Schools are in full swing. Another year. And I'm remembering.
For twenty-two years I taught children in elementary school. And they taught me. Now I'm enjoying the retirement world.
Sometimes, when I go shopping, I meet a former student. It's really funny how they always recognize me, but I seldom know who they are. They've changed a lot from the nine or ten year old I remember. I guess I haven't changed that much. But seeing my little students now taller than me, many of them married with a family, it seems impossible.
It's neat to see that some of them are now teachers. Doctors. Lawyers. And in other professions.
Also, in small towns, like where I live, in the fall, football is king. There are other sports, of course, like volleyball, but football is the most popular, it seems. Every Friday evening the stadium is filled with cheering parents, grandparents, and spectators cheering for our team to win. They've started out good. Lots of games to go.
Thank you for strolling down memory lane with me.
