Our High School as many others, has a 50+ Program so each year there is a reunion for anyone one who has reached their 50th year or more. This was my 54th reunion. These are such special women in my life. We called ourselves the "Soderquist Road" Girls as all of us in the picture grew up either next door or across the street from the time we were children.
From left to right is my sister, Donna, our next door neighbor Barbara, me, my dear friend Kris and her sister Karen. This is the first time we've all be together as Kris and Karen are out of State.
Kris didn't know I was coming. That's what that spontaneous trip was about...I wanted to surprise her and spend a weekend with my sis.
This is another childhood friend, Judy, that is a year younger than me, but we were best buddies growing up in Church together, singing duets, and she was one of my bridesmaids when Don and I were married. My sister and Kris were my other two bridesmaids, so how fun to have us together.
We are students from the class of 1959, and several of these classmates started 1st grade with me and we continued through elementary, Junior High and High school. What fun to hear their stories and what they've done in their lives. It was a good time to grow up in a small community and have so many lasting friendships.
Since I had 2 hours on the bus and 5 hours on the train..both ways...I finished Jill's baby quilt!! Yeah Mission Accomplished!! I'll post a picture tomorrow.
