Do you remember the Pep Rally?It's been a long time since I've given any thought to the Pep Rallys we held in school. I don't remember grade school get togethers. I doubt we had any since my grade school split into at least three different high schools. But, I do remember my high school, Benet Academy, and the Friday pep rally.
I especially remember "We Are the Champions" by Queen pouring into the hallways from the loud speakers. To this day I do not know who allowed such a song to be played in our Catholic prep school hallways, but … (0 comments)

conway mo: Inspired By Heros: Our Teachers - 09/16/08 01:55 PM
Ezard Elementary, Conway MO. Teachers as heros. During my first 40 years, I've been blessed to have many hero's in my life. My Mom, my Dad, my husband, just to name a few. I consider Richard Nixon, FDR, George Halas and a few others hero's as well. They all have made a mark on the world, not always in the most obvious of ways.But, the true hero's in life, I do believe, are the teacher's; those in our schools, entrusted with our children each day. Growing up, I went to a Catholic grade school, high school and college. Many of the … (7 comments)

conway mo: Why I moved to Lebanon, Missouri - 07/10/08 04:29 PM
Several times a week I am asked, "Why did you move to Missouri?" or "Why did you move to Lebanon, Missouri?" I usually give the standard answer, "My parents moved here. I wanted my children to be near their grandparents." Nothing in life is that simple, is it? No not really. Our reasons for moving really are more complex than that. I grew up in a suburb of Chicago.Back "in the day" we had a quite community, a close knit family. I could walk to the mall with friends. I could go to the store and be greeted by name. I couldn't get away … (4 comments)
