The Good Ol' Days...

As you grow older you gain friends that you will never forget.  They will shape your life as you will theirs.  Sometimes we forget who we have as friends till you no longer have them.

A few days back, I was talking to a good friend about some of the good ol' days.  This brought up some memories that I hadn't thought of in a long time!  One might realize how important those "things you do" as a kid shape your life and stay with as you grow older.  The playground is a magical place for children growing up.  I remember playing games and having to use my imagination to keep myself entertained (with friends of course).  We use to travel back in time to look for dinosaur eggs or travel in space to do missions.  Those were the days when life was simple and you could do anything you wanted.  Those were the days you made friends for life...

If you think about it, back then EVERYONE was your friend, it wasn't until we got older that we started separating ourselves into the different cliques...  I remember some of the "big kids" that would come down to the room as student-teacher helpers.  In Kindergarten was when I first learned how to count to 10 in Spanish.  It was so exciting to learn something like that.

I also remember the nap-times!!  Like any other time as a kid, you hated taking a nap.  Now as an adult, anytime we have free time is when we want to nap.  The only difference is that adults don't get any chances to take nap-times!!!  There has just been a lot of things like that, that has changed from being a kid to an adult.

As a kid, life was so much easier for me than it is today.  I didn't have the responsibilities that I have to look after now that I didn't have back then.  We didn't have to worry as much about what clothes we wore or how dirty we got.  We just played...

I am very thankful for the friends I have gained over the years.  They have shaped me into the person who I am today.  Without them, I wouldn't ever have gotten into photography.  So thank you!!IMG_5502
