Looking way way back to elementary school (Village School - Holmdel, NJ)
Over the Christmas break, I spent some time scanning photos that my mother had given me a while back. They, like all other photos, are heading over to flickr. I hope that my former classmates from Village School in Holmdel, New Jersey (the home of Bruce Springsteen....really) can find these images on the web. So it is funny when I have a hard time thinking about what the boys did in Kindergarten and grades 1, 2, and 3. But when I think about these times for me....man, I have nothing. So here I am, as a really young New Jersey kid.... Kindergarten (I am the middle of the bottom row). 1st Grade (I am the only one on the right of the second row). 2nd Grade (the 3rd from the left on the back row next to the teacher - who's name I cannot remember for love or money). 3rd Grade (ditto on the teacher - I am sporting the great jacket - 2nd from the left on the 3rd row). These pictures are wonderful. I hope that other people who are from Holmdel finds them - maybe they will find themselves. And the Internet should be not about SPAM, viruses, or phishing - but random acts of kindness and sharing that helps make the world a better place. Think if we all did a little bit each day - what a library that would make.
