9,125 days. 1,300 weeks. 300 months. 25 years. Wait...............what?!?! Has it really been that long? This past weekend was marked by the UA 25-Year Class Reunion. I was only able to attend one night of the two-night affair, but it was great to see those that were able to make it. It was held in our old gym, and we got to walk the halls of the new building, which I have some very fuzzy memories of. The school closed several years ago, and is now used as part of Benedictine University's campus, so it does not look the same. But it was still good to be back. The one thing I realize every time the class of 1989 gets back together, is how close we all were and how fortunate I am to be a part of this wonderful group of people. I only wish there had been more time to talk and catch up with everyone. It was great hearing about what everyone is up to, what their kids are doing, etc. I have always enjoyed being around the people I went to high school with, and have come to appreciate each of them more over the years. And Leigh has gotten to know many of them as well, so it's neat to share that with her. It was a small turnout, and if you're reading this and are part of the Class of '89 but couldn't make it, you were missed. I would love to spend more time with anyone in the class that is in or near Springfield, or if you live out of town and are passing through, look me up. Or Springfield peeps, maybe we can do a local outing at a park so the kids can join as well. Here's to the Class of 1989!
