I found this while I was surfing in the internet. I thought it was really cute and I enjoyed reading it.
And since most of us are now in our 40’s, we need to remember that it’s only a number and we need to enjoy each and every day we have!

I know one of the purposes of this blog is to communicate with former classmates and hopefully get responses from them. But it still surprises me when I hear from someone who has read the something from this blog.
I heard from Andy Wysocki.

Hello Sylvia and All. Thanks for wondering where I Am.
My family moved to Oklahoma in 1982. It’s nice to have a link to the first 3/4 of my school life.
I e-mailed him back and told him about the website: www.ainsworth1985.com and what I have been up to. Hopefully more people will check out this site and the website and let us know where and what they have been up to.
Starting in April 2008, I will be posting messages on Classmates.com regarding the upcoming reunion in 2010. Make sure you sign up with Classmates.com to get the information.
Information will as be posted on this site as well as the website: www.ainsworth1985.com.
And as always, if you would like to volunteer on the reunion committee, just let me know. I will be contacting you soon.
In some earlier posts on the blog, Amy (Hickman) Vaughn let us know about her daughter, Kaitlyn, and the accident she had last summer. Some have asked about an update on Kaitlyn and here is what Amy had to say.
Thanks Amy for keeping us posted and continue to get better Kaitlyn!
Kaitlyn is doing pretty good. She went back to school just after Thanksgiving. She’s getting all A’s in school so missing 3 months didn’t seem to affect her too much. I guess she gets a medical leave for that time and doesn’t have to make it all up. She had a tudor that came 2 times a week for about 6 weeks until she went back to school. Her foot is doing ok. She has a lot of stiffness and not alot of movement. She can walk ok but sports aren’t an option at this point. She went to the first night of tryouts for volleyball and realized it was way too soon. She ended up being the manager for the team so she was able to be somewhat involved. I think she wants to try out for 9th grade cheerleading. The tryouts are sometime in May so she has a couple of months to try to get that much better. Thanks for asking about her. Amy
