8 years, 7 months.
For every year older you get, it seems that much closer to my memories of my old childhood; since my memories are that much more elaborate the older I was.
So for me, it’s pretty easy to think back 30 years ago to the summer of 1989.
I remember I attended baseball camp. The main thing I remember is that Jonathan Shugart got hit in the head with a baseball.
I remember that was the summer that our town got a Taco Bell; because I went there for the first time in my life, after baseball camp; during the first week it opened.
And I definitely remember our whole family going to see the original Batman movie in the theater.
I remember that I was excited about starting 3rd grade, because it would be at a new school, where you were able to pick juice instead of just milk.
You’re going to have a great school year. I can tell you from experience.
I also can tell you that you won’t forget this summer, just as I didn’t forget my summer preceding 3rd grade. I’m sure getting the Jeep will help ensure that!
