Memory Monday

I've decided to take time each Monday to write about a memory of mine. It could be as recent as yesterday or as far back as kindergarten! It could be silly or serious, a brief writing or a long one, but I'll just come to the computer, close my eyes, and see what comes to mind! :o)

This week: Josh's birthday in 1996

I could write several "Memory Mondays" about Josh and me in high school! This one is silly and probably short, but I just smile each time that I think about it.

When I realized I liked Josh, he already had a girlfriend. I was quite forward back then, so I made it very evident that I was "going after" him! We had Spanish class together, and each day, I would be sure to call him a "stud" because he was, after all, quite amazing on the basketball court! When I found out it was his birthday, I decided to get out a piece of notebook paper and make a card. The outside said Happy Birthday and the inside read:

Roses are red
Trees are green
Hopefully someday
You'll go out with me

I'm pretty sure he broke up with his girlfriend within a couple weeks of that. I'm not sure. I ended up getting mono and was out of school for several weeks, maybe a month. All I know is that when I came back, my friend Megan came up to me in the hall and said, "Guess what! He broke up with her!"

And the rest, as they say, is history...

This is Josh and me a year later...Spring 1997

So sweet! In this picture I can see your little boy in his daddy!

I hope Caleb is a sweet teenager like his daddy. Josh was one of those nice guys, never did anything wrong. It made up for the ornery days of his!

I think all of us Mom's wish for those kinds of sons right?! :0)

ps - I love the Memory Monday idea!
