When I went home a few weekends ago to see Coldplay (still mesmerized) my parent's house was under total chaos. They're finally having the dark 1970's wood paneling removed from our living/dining room upstairs and also adding a deck off of our sun porch. In addition my sister decided she would use this summer at home to make my mom go through pretty much everything in our house and get rid of tons of junk that we don't need.
As my mom was cleaning through a storage closet she found boxes of stuff she saved from me, my brother and sister when we were little. It was so fun to look through school projects, essays, pictures, etc. and into the mind of little me. Some were funny, some were disturbing. I wrote an entire essay on how my parents ruined my life when they "forced" me to move between 5th and 6th grade. That one was a keeper!
I snapped a few pics of my favorites to keep! As much fun as it was to look through all of these things I hope when I have children one day I do the same for them. It would be neat to save certain things in a time capsule for a high school or college graduation gift.

With my mom at the beach--Yes, I had blonde hair when I was little, I've always been obsessed with ice cream, and I look like I might kill someone in that bottom picture
Don't worry I've learned how to spell correctly since then...and what the heck is "I Laks"?
The coolest backpack to have in kindergarten, it paired well with my NKOTB raincoat!
Hope you enjoyed the blast from the past, I was a interesting child. Between all three boxes of childhood memories we were rolling on the ground laughing with some of the crazy things we found in there! I'd highly suggest you look into whatever your parents may have saved!
