L to R: Jim's mom Anne, Jim's sister Michelle, Jim's sister Tammy, Jim, and Jim's dad Jim. The thing Tammy is holding was part of the graduation processional. All the flag girls had them and they held them up to form a sort of archway for the seniors to walk under.
Having spent much time considering Katie's upcoming graduation from high school, I kind of fixed on this picture. Obviously I didn't know Jim back then, but probably would have liked to (despite my having only just finished 7th grade at the time. Plus he had a girlfriend back then, so maybe it's better than we didn't know each other). I'd ask him to share any memories of this picture, but he's at work. Jim, if you read this, COMMENT on it (and don't say "Don't post pictures of me.")! I'm trying to get him to participate in this blog thing, but so far he hasn't seemed overly anxious to share his two cents.
