recently, when we were cleaning out boxes, getting ready for a yard sale, Garrison found these:
we both kept all of our student i.d. cards from jr high and high school. granted, his are a little more beat up than mine, they are 4 years older, and were owned by a boy, who threw them around in the wash with his mud stained jeans, -vs- a girl who stored hers neatly in her wallet because that i.d. card finally gave her a reason to take her cute pink wallet to school.
our daughters are having the best time playing with these, so we figured we'd better keep them safe via pictures on the internet so that when one of our girls inevitably uses one as scissor practice, we won't be totally devastated about our unique, cool-to-us, collection.
here you go, our yearly school pictures in laminated wanna-be credit card form. do you think we would have had crushes on each other back then? we happen to think it's a damn good thing we didn't meet back then cause i'm pretty sure we wouldn't have "clicked". who knows. maybe our daughters will be able to do this with their future husbands someday. do they even make id cards anymore? it's probably all electronic now, like with an app on your phone or something.
if it's any consolation, garrison say's he'd "hit on" the senior version of me. i said "well you better, that was only 2 years before we got married!"
