October 7,2018 - Good evening Diary. I found some of my old grade-school report cards today. I had much fun looking them over! Then I came upon a little old book entitled- "Kit and The Firefly". I had no idea that it still existed. I remember writing it a long time ago. It was a project for Child Development in Vo-Tech school back in 1984. I was 16 years young. I got an A+ on it!
October 8,2018 - Oh, another awesome day! My sister and I are going to the old house again today. Today we found many old photos from the 1940's,50's,60's,70's, and 80's. Wow!
