Graduation Celebration

This year I have had a number of my friend's children graduating from high school. It made me think back to when I was graduating. . .back in 1996. How things have changed from now until then.

I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and look back on some of the things that were "in" when I graduated. . .
