Weekend plans?

Where have you traveled? What places do you want to go but haven't yet?

What's the unhealthies food item in your house right now? The healthiest?

What's for lunch? Dinner?

I thought it was the oddest thing to come up with in thoughts about having a small high school class.  My first thought was about friendships and the chances of making a close friend or two you really clicked with.  I guess I'm just not very materialistic.

They lived within 40 miles of the Mexico border for two years, and their dad lived there another 10.  It's not a stretch to think they'd venture across the border.   


Gotcha

Oh, I'm so sorry that I neglected to inform you that my children have been to Mexico.  I'll add that to my checklist. 


Lol. Been on here awhile. Just surprised I never heard of that.

As much as I can. 

Great, so same as us.

They've both been to Germany and will again extensively. 

Only because their father lives there now.

They've lived in three states. 

3? 

They've been to Mexico several times. 

Really? My bad, never heard you say they went there. Thought that was just you.

They've definitely got more diverse friends and are being raised in a more diverse town than I was. 

That is great, just like myself and my kids but I have been told I dont know people different than myself and dont know much since I havent been out of North America. BAER.

They've experienced more in their 13 and 17 years than I had when I was 25. 

That is great.

How much are you showing your own kids Savcal when you, yourself have not been to many places outside of the U.S.?

How many years did you live outside of your state?  Oh wait . . .

I have explained that my class was so large that there were so many different types of people that I came in contact with throughout the years. While moving to different places allows you to meet all different types of people, coming on contact on a daily basis with different people makes you more aware of more than how you live.

According to greatschools.org, there are only 2347 students in grades 9-12, so more like 600 per grade

Thanks :)
