reuniting

Meg and I have both been invited to reunions this year.

The first time for both of us.

Both reunions are being run by committees.

Both have RSVP dates.

(Both come with quite a bit of peer pressure to attend.)

Mine is from High School. I have been out of high school for 15 years. Wow.

Meg's is from kinder. She has been out of kinder for five weeks. They're having a reunion already.

Did I mention that there is only one primary school here. That, bar moving out of town, all the kids Meg went to kinder with see each other each and every day at school?

According to the facebook page for my high school reunion about 1/3 of us won't be attending. I'd love to go and catch up with with some old classmates. But not quite book-a-flight-to-Australia type love to.

Of Meg's class of 27 kids one will be absent from the reunion. And he has a pretty good excuse- he has moved half way across Japan.

26 kids, 26 accompanying parents, the odd older/ younger sibling, one dad and even some ring-ins from the other class at kinder for a total of 70 odd people will hit the park for bbq, fun, frivolity and reuniting.

Wow.

Can't help feel like she stole my thunder a little!
