At the high school John and I attended, every senior had a senior project and a senior scrapbook to complete. We were required to write about certain topics, but we also had free reign on other pages of our scrapbook. When we went home to Indiana a couple weeks ago for a wedding, I found this puppy.
It’s really neat to look back and reminisce. Here are some of my favorite pages.
We were required to write a dossier. It’s funny how some of my answers would be quite different today, while others are the exact same!
A page dedicated to one of my best friends in high school:
And check out the 5th grade cheerleading page. Bah!
A letter to my future child. That paper weave took me forever, by the way!
I love this page about “My First Love,” which also happens to be my only love.
One thing that meant a lot to me was to dedicate a page to my mom and each of my sisters. I wrote a letter to each of them and asked them to write a letter to me to put on their page. Reading all the letters reminds me how awesome my family is!
My mom is an amazing woman. Like the sticker says, “One in a million!”
My oldest sister and I look the most alike. She’s a teacher now, and great role model. She used to french braid my hair and pull it so tight my eyes would water!
My other older sister has always stuck up for me when people were mean. Remember those mean girls? She taught me how to be strong when I needed it most.
And my younger sister is awesome too. Knowing that she looks up to me makes me want to be a good role model for her. Oh and her sense of style is killer!
One of the requirements was to write about my first time on stage. For me, I was a 6th grader on the cheerleading team. We went to Florida to compete in this huge competition, and we won! The whole school greeted us outside when we pulled back in to the parking lot. It was pretty cool, but I stopped doing cheerleading after that. It just wasn’t for me.
Let’s not forget about senior turnabout, where the girls ask the guys to the Christmas dance.
And then lastly, a fun topic was “If I were a cartoon character…” Strawberry Shortcake is has always been a favorite of mine.
It’s hard to believe that I made this 6 years ago! Time sure does fly. Did you guys have to make a scrapbook in school? Do you put your memories in a scrapbook now?
